Naptha will remove the residue.


Naptha, available at paint stores, hardware stores or Home Depot, will safely remove the adhesive residue without frosting or dissolving the plastic. Sometimes you will find it labled as "VM&P" Naptha, which stands for Varnish Maker's and Painter's Naptha -- because it is often used as a thinner or solvent for same.

Do not use denatured alcohol or, even worse, acetone. Denatured alcohol will make the jewel case look dull or frosty after it evaporates, and acetone will aggressively attack the plastic and begin to 'melt' it.

Use the Naptha in a well-ventilated area.
