How do I get glue off a /mp3 player screen?
I peeled the advertizing cover off an .mp3 player screen, and it left that semi-transparent sticky glue behind.

How can I get that crap off?

1. Rubbing alcohol will work, but be careful not to let it get puddily and enter in under the screen.

2. A hammer and chisel should do the trick.
Wait, are you sure it's glue?

3. My favorite trick for that kind of thing...
...it takes a while, but it doesn't damage the surface.

Get some Scotch tape, make a loop around your finger with the sticky side out, and slowly and methodically use your finger to "blot up" the sticky residue.

Works like a charm. You may need to change the tape several times depending on how much gunk you have to clean up.

:toast:

5. Mayonnaise
Massage mayonnaise over and around the sticky stuff. The oil in the mayonnaise will prevent the glue from sticking and smearing to the clean areas and ball-up. Wipe oil off when the glue has been lifted. Simple.

6. Nail polish remover did the trick.
My neighbor suggested it.

Thanks for the other suggestions, though!
