    I thought about that....but then I thought it would be too strong for the SS surface. Hmmm..ok, I'll try it. Thanks!

    Maybe try vinegar. Worked great on price tag goo on china.

    I was gonna say Goo Gone. I don't think it will be too harsh on a refrigerator.

    Alcohol wipes? Would that be too harsh??

    Didn't someone post something last week about peanut butter removing tape residue?

    I was going to say Goo Gone too. Also nail polish remover works pretty well...but I'd make sure it's the non acetone type.

    Thanks ladies. I especially liked the peanut butter suggestion. :bounce Delicious!
    Goo gone worked....but I was sweating bullets until I was sure it didn't damage the surface. I tried it in an itsy bitsy spot on the bottom and it appears fine.

    I love that Goo Gone! I use it on everything, even on Riley once to get one of those 'tattoos' off his arm!

    alcohol or baby oil, just soak it real well and then scrape off. also straight dish soap without any water should work
