The reason I suggest to go to one of the drug store chains or just to a drug store to get the Isopropyl Alcohol is that you can get it in different strengths.
I use the 91% Isopropyl Alcohol for most of my clean up needs. Believe it or not it is a great all purpose cleaning solvent that is relatively safe to use even in indoor environments. Whether it's tape glue from scotch tape or any type of duct tape, fiberglass tape they all have a very similar adhesive and Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol with cut through just about all of them I've cleaned up.
Also 91% Isopropyl Alcohol is great for prepping items to be glued or painted as well.
Now if you've got an adhesive that the alcohol won't cut then you need to move up to acetone or Toulene>> or even laquer thinner will cut most glues and adhesives.
Also fingernail polish remover is a remarkably strong solvent as well.
But the really nice thing about Isopropyl Alcohol is that it doesn't leave any residue to speak of and it really cleans neatly
I agree completely with the rubbing alcohol.. The toluene is Nasty stuff, though..seriously.. Use gloves. don't breath it... It's similar to benzene in that it's a bio-accumulent. In other words, if you got gasoline on you when you 5yrs old, the benzene from that gas is still in you..somewhere.. Toluene is the same way.. And, like benzene, it's a carcinogen.
