Question Removing adhesive from clear coat

What is a safe product to use on a clear coat finish to remove adhesive left over from the shrink wrap?

Thanks!

Any cleaner wax like Meguires works great. You could also use a citrus cleaner like orange clean witch works great on removing adhesives.

Spray Silicon Lubricant works well too. If it is really tough adhesive, go to an auto-body supply shup, and get the 3M Adhesive Remover, in the white and red can. Good stuff too.

I use the 3M adhesive remover that I found at my local O'Reilly's Auto Parts Store!
Good Luck!

Cheapest stuff and works better than 3M is Xylene at your local hardware store, excellent on any adhesive and also duck tape
