Removing velcro glue residue?

Hi all,
After my recent move, when I unpacked my hobby stuff, I discovered that the industrial strength velcro strips on my ammo belt had "slid" from where I had placed them. I need to replace them (obviously) but I need something to remove the gooey glue residue from the vinyl belt.
Anyone know of any cleaning products that will take this stuff off without dissolving/eating through the vinyl?
Thanks for any info.

GOO GONe is pretty good you can get it in your hardware store. Might be a little less rough that the other two, but just as effective.

nail polish remover or olive oil...both work like dreams! promise
Olive oil???? Really? That's so weird. I don't want to wind up smelling like an Italian restaurant after I'm done though :lol:

I was going to say goof off or goo gone (one of those names) too, but test it in a inconspicuos spot first as I have had it take the color out of things before.
Maybe peanuit butter its works like a charme to get gum out of hair??? Just a thought. You never know?

Hmm, olive oil. . . peanut butter. . . to re-emphasize: I'm trying to get the residual glue off, not make a sandwich!! :)
Thanks for the advice folks. I'm sure one of these will work.

I'd steer away from nail polish remover as most have acetone and even those that don't still are REALLY harsh on plastic and can melt some on contact.

Paint thinner/mineral spirits is more than adequate. Goo gone is another great alternative.

try using brand new Industrial strength velcro.
take the sticky side & stick it to the old glue residue witha a dabbing motion.
it worked on my Tk armor.
