try spraying a little WD40 on it. this usually works better than finger nail polish remover or anything with acetone in it, and doesnt strip the paint.

Lemon furniture polish worked really well for me. :)

How do you get residue off of hard wood flooring?

Lightly sand the residue. Varnishes seep into the wood so you wont take the colour off right away like with painted surfaces. Don't sand it too heavily. Of course if you wish to sand and buff the entire surface of a poor condition floor then a heavy sanding may be what you want however I am going to assume the residue you speak of is a result of surfacing the floor in the first place.

What household solvent will removing adhesive used for car decals from metal?

The best remover of glues that I have used is lighter fluid for Zippo lighters. === === There are many solvents available at your local auto parts supply store which work, BUT the most important step to make any solvent work much better is to break the weather resistant surface seal of the sticker by the use of sandpaper. Be careful to sand only the decal or sticker, not the metal surface! The breaking of the weather resistant surface of the decal or sticker will allow much better penetration of whichever solvent is used, and thus shorten the time required to remove the sticker. === === An 80 year old lady told me this trick, and it works. Once you have the sticker/decal peeled off, use eucalyptus oil to remove the sticky residue left behind.

How to remove scraches off the back of an iPod touch?

You actually can't. A scratch is an engraving. If you want to remove smudges from the back of an iPod touch, use a baby wipe, or something like that. Don't use a wet washcloth because the water will get into the headphone jack and the charger holey thing. If you want to remove sticker residue from the back of an iPod touch without scratching it, peel off most of the sticker, grab a pencil eraser, and erase. Sometimes getting the residue kinda wet will help.

How do you get sticker residue off an ipod?

Things you need -wash cloth -item to get sticker residue off -vegetable oil -3 paper towels Okay so this is what i did... I took the wash cloth and put a little bit of vegetable oil in the middle.. Like just enough to see it on the wash cloth. Then fold it in half and squeeze until you can feel some moist wash cloth ( hence the veggie oil.) Then gently take the wash cloth and rub it against the sticker residue and it should come right off. It might take up to 3 minutes so be patient. Then take a paper towel and rub off your fingers of the vegetable oil. Then take the next one and wipe it against the iPod to get most of it off. Then take the last one and rub hard on the iPod where there might be any vegetable oil left. (if it is "slippery" then that's where you want to wipe the paper towel on. Next-wash your hands. Finally- keep in in your pocket for at least 15 minutes and then Voila! you have a clean shiny sticker residue free iPod! Or whatever else your using this for.
