    Its avalible just about anywhere. Another option is "OOPS! Multipurpose Remover" It works really well without the citrus smell.

    My wife uses peanut butter to remove sticky residue. Never fails. It can be found in your pantry ;)

    Non-stick cooking spray like Pam works well for things like this. I've even used it to remove stubborn stickers (the ones that just don't come off, and leave paper AND glue behind) from book covers, with no visible residue.

    Here in Australia I use Eucalyptus Oil. Very similar to most "goo-removers".

    One word of warning. I always clean the area after removing the sticky label residue with a mild detergent. Why? I once left a tissue with Eucalyptus Oil on it sitting on a plastic coaster overnight. By morning, the tissue was fused to the coaster. :eek:

    I don't know if this applies to other "goo-removers".
