    i just got a brand spankin' new camera for gbatemp reviews...

    first thing i do is take the sticker off the front of the camera - and it leaves sticky gunk there, so that everytime i put my finger on it, i touch sticky gunk. [​IMG]

    ive tried wiping it off with a wet towel and scraping it off with a toothpick - no luck.

    so how do i get the left over sticky stuff off my camera? any methods you know of?

    Be sure to claim on your product insurance when it sets itself on fire.

    Spray a little WD-40 on a paper towel and it comes right off.

    I use this all the time for removing gunk from the security stickers on dvd cases.

    ...lol, that's a little dangerous. WD-40s are pretty damn dangerous as chemicals.

    LOL, I don't plan on licking my DVD case like a lollipop when I'm done. But you should rub the area with water after you use the WD-40.
