Removing duct tape glue on vinyl window ?

Would sort of EZ Strip solvent or solution work to remove gook left by the removal of duct tape on vinyl window ?

I'm not familiar with EZ Strip but I'd try a little mineral spirits first, shouldn't take much along with some elbow grease and a rag.

Yes, start with paint thinner first. A plastic dish scraper might help.

Or try one of the citrus oil based solvents, like goo gone. Spritz it on, let it work a while, then wipe off. Works for me on all sorts of tape and sticker residue....

WD40 would be my first choice.

That and a little elbow grease.

Be careful with some of these options. While they will work, some of the harsher chemicals like goof-off and paint thinner can end up staining vinyl window frames if they're not cleaned off properly.
