Removing sticker residue - with peanut butter.
I recently acquired a used plane that was covered in stickers. Most came off without a problem but there was a big one on the fuse that left a lot of itself behind.
I tried the usual list of cleaners. 99% IP alcohol, acetone, WD-40, naphtha, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser - a little came off but mostly it just got smeared around. I had found a page titled 30 Helpful Items To Remove Sticky Adhesive Goo and I went back to it to read the replies at the bottom. Seems a lot of people had success with peanut butter when nothing else worked, so I decided to try it.
I don't quite know why or how, but it worked really well. Almost all of the goo is gone now and with a little more elbow grease I can take care of the last of it.
WD40 was very helpful in removing the peanut butter. I'll take more pictures when I get to the other side of the fuse.

What a great idea. You have to wonder how anybody ever came up with it. I hope you wiped that fuselage off with a slice of bread.
