    So I just took off the SR5 badges on the door (stubborn little shits) and most of the adhesive was easy just to peel right off but there is still an outline around where it was that goo gone for cars with a microfiber towel or a warm sponge can't get off. I have lighter fluid but to be honest I'm kind of nervous to use it. Anyway I can get it off without having to go buy anything possibly?

    Sometimes spraying Windex and letting it sit on the adhesive can work decently, but typically it works best for stickers on glass.

    I have had amazing results with GOJO (white) cream hand cleaner. Even takes tar off quick and easy, then rinses away with soap and water.

    Dampen a paper towel with denatured alcohol. Wipe gently in small circles. You'll be amazed at how easy it comes off. :D

    Not this. I stripped my clear coat in a small area when removing my badges.
