    Scraper with fresh blade should get most of it off. From there you could use white spirit I suppose, or some specialist stuff called 'sticky stuff remover'. I have some left over from decorating jobs, but never need to use it as scraper and scrim remove most.

    Wipe a ubik or virosol soaked rag on it and then scrape it straight off with a blade
