Default A "Sticky" situation

I am recovering an old trainer (one I learned on) and it seems to have been covered in shelf paper. In many areas it has left a "sticky" residue that dosnt want to be sanded off. Is there any sort of abrassive chemical I can use?

Try some "Goof Off", available at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.

Sometimes good ol' WD-40 is a good solvent, but I worry that you'd never be able to get covering to stick to the wood again if you used that.

Default Sticky

For those stubborn sticky residues I use a great product named "Goo Gone". Available at most hardware stores and even some grocery stores.
