Wondering if straight razor would be good, that and a combo of Goo Gone or something else. Anyone have any recommendations?

Pledge will get it off spray some onto it leave for a while and rub it off

another good one is if you have chewing gum on a carpet or clothing put ice on it till it becomes hard and pick it of

Goof Off works good, sold at home depot near the paint aisle. Razor blade works great on glass.

on glass you can use rubbing alcohol it works really good with a sponge.

Any oil based product would work. Mayo, butter, margarine, goo gone, baby oil, etc.

I agree with the mayo one. I used it to get off the stickers my son stuck to my hardwood floor. Works great!

Strait razor and lighter fluid works well on glass but depending on the type of sticker you may be able to get it off with just the razor. As for the wood, what you use will have to depend on the type of paint because you don't want to strip the paint. I've used goo gone in a daycare setting and it works but you need quite a lot and it needs to sit for longer than the directions say on some types of adhesive or it won't work (it's also hard to keep it on a vertical surface). Goo gone can also be very fussy to clean off after wards. I've also used rubbing alcohol in a pinch.

sounds crazy, but i use mayo...smear it , let it sit a few minutes and the oil in it will soften up the sticky back and just scrape it off with a plastic scraper (the kind you would use on wall paper)

Try baby wipes first, may take a few but it works on the glass if its just the sticky residue left then a little baby oil rubbed into it in circular motions should loosen it, a straight razor may scratch.Just checked in a book I have it also recommends wd~40 ( a spray oil for squeeks on bikes/ prams ect) or orange citrus cleaner( although it does not state any type)
