Removing Adhesive From Stained Wood‏

Question: I have some 20+ year old double backed adhesive that needs to be removed from stained (but not sealed) window trim (in dark walnut stain). What can I use to safely remove this adhesive without staining/altering the current window trim finish?

Answer: The adhesive should come off using a wet cloth and dish washing liquid, may take a few attempts to remove it all. If it is really stubborn you can use a fiberglass dish pad, do not use any steelwool.
