I am having a problem removing tape residue from a flat white painted wall (drywall). I have tried warm water and soap, but am afraid to damage the paint by trying a marketed product.

Try Goo Gone in an inconspicuous area. I think you'll be pleased with the results.

I was searching around for something to use.Tried sugar soap which did not work. A can of flyspray was handy and bingo the tape residue came off with no damage to paint.
Mortein fast knockdown active constituent 2.41g /kg Bioallethrin. Tape residue was about a month old.

Have you tried picking up the adhesive using more of the same tape?
I also found this article "25 Helpful Items To Remove Sticky Adhesive Goo" here: tipnut.com/.../

A few of the tips look promising. I think I would try
10. Baking Soda & Water Paste
16. Art gum Erasers (Not a pink pencil eraser! Look in an art supply store or perhaps even a scrap booking store)
24. basically, heat with a hairdryer to soften and wipe off with a damp cloth. Good luck!

wd40, olive oil or baby oil works like a charm.

I found these left a stain on my drywall from the oil base. I wouldn't use these....

Try using Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, slightly dampened. They work well on most surfaces! Good luck.

Have you tried using a steamer on it? Or maybe even a hair dryer.

Now don't go using Goo-gone, Goof-off, Baby oli or WD 40. You will end up haveing to wonder how to get the oil stain off next.

Just use your hair drier then forget about it. The heat releases the adheasive.

I have used mineral spirits. May be pricey, don't remember, but did the job with no elbow grease and when nothing else that I tried worked. I now renamed this product, "miracle spirits".
