Removing Mylar Adhesive from Playfield Removing Mylar Adhesive from Playfield Hot video

I've been using the flour method for removing mylar glue residue from a playfield for a while.  The included video describes the method in detail.  I recently came across a post on Pinside.com that improves on the original method.

Rather than alcohol, this method uses Goo Gone Spray Gel.  Lightly sprinkle flour over the adhesive residue and then spray Goo Gone over the area.  Let it sit for from five to twenty minutes and place some fresh flower at one edge of the area.  Then roll the fresh flower over the area you previously sprayed and the adhesive will roll up into a ball.

This is by far the simplest method I have ever seen.
