Use a heat gun and scraper to remove adhesive. Residues can be removed with a chemical stripper.

I swear by GOO GONE. I love this stuff. IT takes messes away from all kinds of surfaces. I would suggest following the directions about testing in an inconspicuous area first. I personally have never had a problem on any surface. I even use this stuff to take crayon off of walls. It's great.
