I'm currently cycling so it's not much of a problem. And it isn't really an adhesive. You can not really feel it, but you can see it. I tried all of my house hold cleaners, and none of them seemed to do the job. :(

How are you suppose to clean it off if with ammonia or vinegar dries off quickly. It's vertical. :(

if you can get a hold of it eucalyptus oil is good for getting sticky residue off stuff. once again i wouldnt be keen on getting it in the tank so just put a bit onto a soft cloth and rub it onto the "mark"

I'm using goo gone. It's not working. Yet?

Ugh, the stain is really oily!

If it is tape sticky stuff, then i always found that nail varnish remover works as a brilliant solvent for that stuff. Not sure how tan safe it is though (well, i assume it's bad for the fishes, but i don't know if it works like bleach and penetrates the seams/seals) so i'd be careful of splashing it around. it might work on an oily stain too, as it's a light alcohol i believe, so might lift it off. not sure of my chenistry there....


Hope you gets it sorted!
