Removing duct tape grime. What to use?

In October I rescued a nelson from a local pawn shop. Whoever had it wrapped the panels in duct tape, so upon removal they were a mess.

So my question is: let em soak in rubbing alcohol for a while?

WD40 does good.

Both crossed my mind. The easiest to get currently is alcohol. I just wanted to make sure my thinking was correct. I'm gonna have to post pics of the marker shortly anyway, as I'm not sure what it is.

not a joke: Listerine mouthwash. Its my new go to cleaner. I used it in a pinch to clean up some creosote from my stove and I have now found it is a wonder cleaning product (and leaves a minty fresh smell too). I used up all of my denatured alcohol and switch to the listerine only to find that the mouthwash was much better than the higher % rubbing alcohol. So far I've used it on the stove top and the bottom of some pans.

My guess is that some of the ingredients besides the alcohol act as non-polar solvents.

I'll keep that in mind. I mean it makes sense.

For this project I went with Isopropyl. Mixed with a stiff finger brush, it was a relatively quick job. Now I'm doing a rebuild. This thing is in kinda rough shape. A bunch ofor stripped screws.

Goo gone is great. Automotive bug and tar remover isn't bad either, it's meant to not ruin paint jobs. Test in discreet spot or on an old spyder, though.

I typically carry one extra tube and give them 1 ball from it.

I'm an *** like that.
