Default Best product to remove stickers from fiberglass Gelcoat

What is the best product to remove the residue off of the fiberglass Gelcoat once the original stickers have been removed, what should be done after the old stickers are removed and the new stickers are installed to protect the Gelcoat and new stickers?

Not really a product, yet a tool. I have one that my friend used the entire wheel on removing graphics from his boat. Did an amazing job (graphics were nearing 12 years old)

Edit: Just read that you already had the stickers off, anything above will work, also try goof off
