    Need help cleaning STI seats - Removing Duct tape Glue

    I accidentally put something on my seats on my 06 STI (blue Alacantara) that had some sticky stuff on it from gray duct tape. The sticky gray material from the duct tape is now stuck on the blue part of my seats! I tried using a little rubbing alcohol with no luck. I need something like "Goo Gone" that won't hurt my seats. A friend of mine said sesame oil might help break down the glue, but I'm afraid of trying it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Goo Gone will probably work just fine. Only use as little at a time.

    Hmm, it says right on the bottle not too use on Suede or Leather, I know the seats aren't suede, but pretty close. The problem is the glue is right in the middle of the seat so if it messes it up, it will be very visible.

    Any other ideas?

    I would test Goo Gone on an inconspicuous area of the seat fabric myself.

    WD40 can loosen adhesive. Test it on duct tape adhesive first.
