Painting Steps

I want to repaint the steps, took off the rubber mats that were glued on. Any idea how to get the glue off?
Thanks,

Harbor Freight Oscillating Multifunction Tool for about $20 will cut it off and when done you still have the tool for other uses.

I appreciate your thoughts, Rick! I have some rust on the sides and decided to pull off the mats, clean and repaint. As to what would I put on it, I'm not sure yet. I might go with the stainless steel product - a bit expensive, but those who have it really like it.
Thanks, again!

Adhesive remover or mineral spirits. Adhesive remover works best.

As long as we're on the "Painting Steps" topic, What types of coatings have been used to resurface exterior steps?
