Default Help please, remove the adhesive residue from a decal

So just got a new car and the person that had it before me had two big decals on the hood. Well he took it off but all the residue from it stayed on the hood. I've been looking online to find what people use to get rid of it.

So far I have tried goo gone, windex, and wd40. And they all did a decent job from where it originally was but you can still see and feel the stickiness. Saw a few other suggestions but just seeing if anyone on here really knows some great tip to get it off. Right now it seems like no matter what I use will get it off. And with it being on the paint I know I gotta be careful not to mess that up

Try a heat gun to soften the adhesive up then use a clear coat safe adhesive remover...I removed a pin stripe on my old Tahoe like that.

Yea I saw some people saying that, think that might be my best option because any solution alone dont seem to be budging it.

go to an auto parts store and get a grease and wax remover for paint prep. You'll love it!

You think it'd really do a better job then what I've previously tried using?

I used wax and grease removal/goo gone/warm soapy water/credit card after I heated the adhesive up. Some adhesives left behind after removing decals can be a PITA period. You can use a soiled rag with adhesive remover and kind of soak the adhesive as well. Good luck man.

Yeah! might need to soak it a tiny bit, but its designed to remove any greasy or waxy material from a porous surface so you can spray paint on it and it doesn't come off. it'll do exactly what you need.

Gas will do it, just don't smoke while doing it

Go to walmart in the house cleaning air freshener aisle. Get a spray can of the orange citrus air freshener. Spray it on let it sit for a cpl minutes and it almost will completely wipe off. When i worked at home depot thats the only stuff we used to remove the sticky crap off the beams when we removed the stickers. It works better than anything. I think i have a can i can take a picture of if you need.
