    Default How to clean sticky tape residues off?

    Used the wrong tape and now I have sticky residues on the rubberized portion of my camera body. Tried water and clothes to gently rub it off but to no avail. Anyone knows how to effectively removes the residues?

    It didn't work. Still got lots of stubborn residues between the etched rubber surfaces

    Should try lighter fluid. Think it's gentler than turpentine.
