People seem to like Goo Gone for removing sticky stuff. I don't know how 
effective it is on just plain crud, if that's what's left when the tape comes off.

I've run into a situation where some discs have had die-cut stickers attached, 
half on the label and half on the record surface. Lighter fluid seems to be the 
answer..then Goo Gone to remove what the lighter fluid didn't (these things are 
stubborn). And then whatever you usually use on records to remove the Goo Gone.

They are some nice dance band sides from the 20s on Cameo, Harmony, etc. The tape comes off but leaves behind the glue that is not water soluble.  So what will clean this?  Last time this came up there were answers of chemicals that are pretty nasty.  Let's stay away from those.  Any simple remedies of relatively non-toxic household items or easily obtainable products that don't destroy the 78?
