Please help on how to remove this tape residue from siding

My wife put up birthday party decorations on the siding of our house using tape. When the decorations came down, the tape residue stayed on the siding ( itís aluminum) and now I canít get it off . I tried almost everything and if I scrub too hard it takes the pain right off . Thanks for any advice !

What did you try? Goo-Gone, Goof-Off? Heat gun? Try using some silicone spray.

What type of tape? Sometimes mineral spirits works.

Lightly spray with WD-40, let it sit a few minutes then wipe off.
