Removing glue from the tubes

Ive just bought my first rib, and have removed a sticker from each side. Its left behind the glue and I was wondering the best way of removing the glue from the tubes. I have not tried anything yet, as I dont want to damage the tubes!

Thanks for any advice.

A drop of petrol on a clean rag will get it off Wash it (the tube) after though with washing up liquid and then put some tube protector on if it had before. Hypalon is pretty tough stuff.

Use orange juice for this.
Put some juice on a towel and lay it on the glue.
After 15 min you can simply remove the glue with a creditcard or ice scrape.

Might also try a drop or two of vegetable oil and a wipe.
