Some tips tho - like with any solvent, test it on an area you don't care about so much jus' to be sure it won't mess up yer paint. While the spray can is handy, I really prefer the non-aerosol for a coupla reasons... you get a LOT more for your money & for the stubborn sticky you can saturate a (terrycloth) rag, lay it over the gooey and let it soak for a coupla minutes, then it outa wipe right off (you'll need lots of clean rags or you'll smear it around). You'll want to do this in the cool shade as this stuff evaporates quickly & defo do it in a well ventilated area as it's very much not good for ya
