How do you remove sticker resider from car paint?

I just bought a used car, and though I love it, there’s a spot on the trunk door that clearly used to have a sticker there. How do I remove the remaining residue?

Answer
Used cars have their quirks, but I’m glad you like it otherwise!
To remove the remaining residue, all you need is some olive oil and to do the following:
  • Wet a soft rag with the oil. Make sure the rag is soft; you don’t want to scratch the paint!
  • Rub the rag over the remaining mark until no adhesive remains.
  • To finish, add a smidge of grease-fighting detergent to warm water.
  • Then, dip a sponge in the water and wipe the olive oil off the surface.
This should leave the paint looking as good as new!
