    I haven't ever used it on a laptop. but I swear by lighter fluid.....do not light it on fire though. Just put a bit on a soft cloth and it is magic.

    Lighter fluid, WD40, and Goo Gone are just slight variations on the same thing. Something else that will work is de-natured alcohol. This is different than the stuff you get the pharmacy section of Walmart; you buy it from a hardware store.

    Yup, all petroleum byproducts can get the job done. :)

    Turpentine, too - if you tolerate the smell; well, best to get the stuff that leaves the least residue. It's pure alcohol or purified gasoline (petroleum benzine) most probably.

    Me, I'd save the petrol byproducts for if heat and a little elbow grease don't do it. On laptop stickers that's usually enough.

    Baking soda and water. When it turns into paste scrub it with a cloth and it's removes all the sticky residue

    Works for that old plastic that used to have that rubber/soft feel and overtime turns into sticky Mess.

    Think old Motorola phones or laptop tops.

    Never had issues using WD40, it comes off easy and leaves nothing on it. It does not damage/melt the surface. Heat on C side can be bad for the keyboard as the keys can melt.
