Unstick me

I used to use a product called Goo Be Gone, which was great at getting things like stickers completely off the surface it was attached to (even bumper stickers off cars). Unfortunately, I haven't seen that product offered in a very long time. Can you recommend something to get a sticker off my wall? It's hard to explain, but these aren't normal stickers, and are even more difficult to remove than normal.

If you put ice on the gum and let the gum get really hard, sometimes it comes off in one piece pretty easily with, say, a butter knife.

No picture attached. They still make *goo be gone* type products. Atleast I am almost certain it is the same company, they are liquid and in an orange bottle now and used for several different things. My suggestions are heat, nail polish remover, or dish soap. Have you tried just leaving dish soap on the sticker itself and letting it soak through?

It's on a wall, and it sounds drippy. Might have to do it anyway. Thanks! As soon as I posted this I went back and deleted reference to a picture because I saw it hadn't come up.

@AmbiePam I like @TiarasOceanView suggestion of a cotton ball.

@ScribbledAdNauseum It would be best with the acetone. Some nail polish removers are non acetone which would not work.

You mean Goo Gone? My Mom still has a bottle of that stuff. Have you tried looking at craft stores?

@xstitcher Maybe it is just Goo Gone now and not Goo Be Gone. You know, I've been checking the regular Wal-Mart, but haven't gone to the Super Wal-Mart. Thanks!

What about straight acetone, or you probably dont have that Ambie, but any nail polish remover has it. We used it in beauty school and in the salon to get any kind of anything off everything.

I use nail polish remover to get stick stuff off. Can't say that it's OK for a wall though.

Eucalyptus oil is good. I don't know how readily available it is though.

There are similar products to goo be gone on the market now. I would ask what they rceomend at the hardware store. I have some residue on my wall that needs to be removed too. I havent looked to see if I have any of those removing solvents.
