Wallpaper Border 'Goo' Remover?

I recently removed the 10" wallpaper borders in my kitchen and bath by hand. But there is a residue of sticky tacky glue-like almost invisible remainder of where it was removed. I have tried Goof Off, soap and water, and nothing is taking off the sticky, tacky residue left from the wallpaper .....

Any ideas?

I don't want to hurt the existing finish trying to remove this stuff either.

If it's normal wallpaper paste, a mixture of vinegar and water should remove it.

Oh good idea! I'll try that!

I don't know what normal wallpaper paste looks like, but this stuff is like an invisible super tacky residue that I couldn't get off.

I'll try the vinegar/water solution for sure.!

Thanks!

X2 on the WD-40. Spray it on, smear it around. Give it 5 minutes or so and wipe off the goo.

It's not wallpaper paste it's adhesive .

But how do you get the smell of the WD-40 out of the coach after you use it?

Don't laugh. The oils in peanut butter will soften a lot of gooey stuff.

I've had excellent luck using waterless hand cleaner for removing label goo. It will be necessary to wash the are with soap and water afterward.

Whatever you try, try it in a small inconspicuous are first to make sure it doesn't stain.

Oh my, I thought he/she was kidding about the peanut butter. I didn't know it really would work!?!

Sorry about that!
