How to remove adhesive left behind after removing warning stickers from sun visors?

I removed the warning stickers from the sun visors in my 2011 GT today.

The stickers came off, but the adhesive did not.

Does anyone have a proven method of removing the adhesive that does not damage the fabric or the visor?

I have a black cloth interior.

Thanks.

Goo Gone is probably the safest thing. It's a mild form of petroleum distillates without the fuel odor.

It may or may not get it all.... You could try Butane. Freeze it with butane and flake it off with a comb or some such... Maybe....

WD 40 works great, but I've never used it on fabric.

Just did the same on my new Explorer. Same issue. When you know the answer, please post it. Thanks.

De-solv-It citrus spray works for me. Smells great and eats up adhesive. Safe for all material too, but I would still do a little test spot just to be on the safe side.

Try putting a 4-6" piece of duct tape and pressing and pulling till all the adhesive is off. You may have to use several pieces to keep the full strength power of the duct tape. Also a great trick for removing hair in your upholstery.

I've heard the best thing is to cover them up with a sticker you like...
