Carpet protector adhesive removal

I have recently used carpet protectors for moving into my new home, when I pulled up the carpet protectors a stickey film or adhesive (clear) was left behind. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to remove this? I don't want it to start collecting dirt. Thanks...

I would try mineral spirits. Pour it on a rag and then wipe the carpet with the rag.

I've replaced carpet for builders before, because they used that misleading, junk!!

Goo Gone

I ended up using Goo Gone on the carpet with a mild rag rinse and it's seemed to pulled up the mess.
