Removing duct tape residue

Does anybody know of an effective way to remove the residue left from gaffa tape that wont melt plastics or harm electrics? I recently got an old keyboard that covered with it. (there is a lot of the stuff)

I read the comments in here before embarking upon my daughter-in-law's bunch of curtain rods that she wrapped with duct tape when moving, then stored them in a 100 degree + storage facility. The tape adhesive was welded to each rod. The only highly effective remedy was WD-40 and cheese cloth. I sprayed the cheese cloth with WD-40 and simply rubbed till every molecule of glue was gone. 1-10 on effort, about a 4. Easy. Posting this to help others!

Mayonnaise works great!! I have 3 boys that love to hog tie each other, mayonnaise is safe and effective on the skin.

stunned amazement! It works!

For the really hard stuff, dab with mayonnaise and scrape 4 times with finger nail. Repeat until it's gone..

For the old tape, spray WD40, leave in hot sun for 10 minutes . It goes soft and can be pealed off.
