Regarding "tape spooge" (what a great moniker, if not gross) this is the
bane of my existence. I hate that shit. I went out and got some stuff
called Goof Off from Home Depot which was supposed to do away with that
stuff but it didn't work very well. I didn't try it on anything metal
yet, but most of my problems are with people putting velcro with the
sticky backs on plastic cases. I tried cleaning some plastic with tape
spooge on it and it just melted the damn thing. Anyone have any ideas?
