Shaved the rear, now an issue!

HELP!

I took Accord and V6 badges off but now I realize that none of the local stores have Goo-Gone...

Anyone know how I can safely remove the sticky stuff using common household stuff?

Microfiber cloth, WD40, and alot of scrubbing.
When I get it all off I wash all the WD40 off and then wax it.

Use a hair dryer to get it soft then use your finger nail or a microfiber towel. You will have to get rough to get it off.

Not even Wal-Mart or Target?

WD-40 should work. Just take your time. Don't try to rush it by scrubbing harder..... you'll just make more scratches that way.

Why's that??

I used it...... with great success...... and no regrets. Did it's job perfect, with no adverse effects to the paint. You can't tell in any way where the badges were.

goo gone has been known to strip clearcoat and leave the area dull-looking.
