Using copper for manifold in MLT, It has stick-em on it from the bar code labels. What can I use to get it off safely? Will goof off or a similar solvent leave a residue? Boil? Any suggestions.

WD-40 does an AMAZING job of removing stickies. Spray it, let it soke for a couple seconds and then hit it with a paper towel.

Thanks guys. Star san soak overnight took care of most everything. Boy, dose that copper look good, really bright and shinny.
