Stain From Masking Tape on Clothing

I recently purchased a skirt but the manufacturer forgot to remove some masking tape around the hem. Now there is a slight sticky residue, but even worse, the fabric is discolored. I have tried soaking and washing with Woolite, but to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the stain? Thanks!

There should be a tag inside the garment, perhaps down the seam somewhere to tell you it's fabric content. If washable, I'd definitely use WD-40, letting
it sit for 30 minutes, then rubbing gently with a folded paper towel on top, another under the fabric to soak up any residue from the back. It works wonders for most all sticky stuff on most every surface. The color should return once the sticky is off
it. Repeat as often as necessary, careful not to OVER
spray the spot, and only IF it begins to come off.
Once off, toss and wash as usual but remember that the spray is flammable and should be sprayed outside only. Then, hand rinse gently with Dawn before machine wash/dry. Good luck. God bless you. : )

I used goo gone followed by dawn, and the melted sticky tape came right off my white fuzzy bathrobe in just a few minutes! My robe is now washing in the washer. I am so pleased with all the suggestions I received. Thank you.
