Red face How can I clean these bits up?

I'm after a little advice on how to clear up these interior issues. Before I make a hash of it really when there could have been an easier way I didn't know.

First is where something used to be stuck on, maybe an air freshener or mobile holder, it is the usual 3M tape stuff I presume. I don't want to damage the dash by picking away at it with my nails for any longer!



Secondly my mobile phone holder, which (I assume) under the 30+ degree heat from a few weeks back has melted and dropped down the glass. It's quite tacky to touch, and I was surprised to see it. I didn't use any special glue or anything, just a bit of saliva and vacuum sucked it on using its own mechanism.

I would use Tardis on the glass, that will shift it and I would be tempted to use Tardis on the dash but I'm not sure if Tardis would react to the dash, maybe hold fire on that one until other members come along.

Try methylated sprits - do a test area first.

WD 40 will remove both them but do a test patch first. Spray it on a cloth.

I'd never put Tardis on any interior plastics to be honest. The chances of bleaching out the pigments are far too high for confort, and completely irreversible.

I kind of had the feeling that Tardis isn't suitable for interior plastics, no issues with glass though.

Agreed it won't do the glass any harm, needs to be carefully put on a cloth first through, not sprayed around

Tarnish for the glass (with a suitable cloth on dash in case any drops onto it)' finish then with a good glass polish.

Dash I would personally try a damp cloth over top just with water o see if it shifts it. Try the lover level of abrasion/chemical first IMO.

Thanks everyone, I'll see what I can do. Might wait until next Sunday to see if I can some Tardis from Waxstock.
