    this is the one i use, not expensive mate.
    soak a rag, and dab the remover over the effected area.
    leave it 5 minutes and repeat. after 1 minute use an old squeegee and swipe the adhesive off. repeat if any left. once adhesive is gone, you must clean with the likes of isopropynol to remove the tar and glue from surface.

    the key is leaving it to soak, longer if the adhesive is bad.
    the chemical needs time to break down the adhesive making it possible to remove.
    going straight in after with a cloth or paper towel just moves the adhesive about, spreading the area. do it first with a squeegee.

    there is no problem what so ever with your cleaner suggestion mate. i wouldnt remove it. maybe the cleaner is perfectly fine, maybe not.
    but having this thread here and the replies that followed creates its own awareness of not only your cleaner, but any cleaner. i.e. its worth checking its content and if it "might" damage paintwork… all relevant content to the site. :thumbsup:
