Double-sided tape - how can you get it off glass?

(9 Posts)

When DD was small, extremely overprotective DH stuck paper with double-sided tape over the small panels of old glass on a glass-fronted bookcase, in case she should fall through. She never came anywhere near it.
Now 6 years later, I would like to get the horrible sticky remnants of the glue off the glass panes. I have tried WD40, windolene, oil, scraping with a razor blade, warming with a warm wet cloth ... all ideas from google.
Has anyone, ever, managed to get this stuff off???????

Nail varnish remover or vodka

Sticky stuff remover from Lakeland. It's prices about £8 but good size bottle that will last ages. Fab stuff.

Alcohol hand gel. Smear it on thickly, leave for a while, then scrape with something smooth and rounded (a protractor works well!)

Ooh ... lots of ideas I haven't tried ...

Best is lighter fluid IME.

WD40 a close second.
