I had to get carpet tape off our tile floor and what worked best was a combination of Windex and a razor blade scraper. That's fine for tile, but the razor might damage the wood so for that I agree about Goo Gone. Good luck!

Default Dupont Prep-Sol 3919

What they use to prep a used car before painting it. Removes anything with a hydrocarbon base. Tars, glues, goop, waxes, etc.

Ask in any autobody shop if they will sell you a quart or so. Bring a jar. Is like $10 a gallon their cost. Takes off all gummed labels, tapes, etc easy. Will even remove a lot of the mastic type adhesives for tile after you have scrapped it down.

Great question and timely for me. We closed last night and today when I went over to the new house to clean, I realized that there is adhesive all over the tile floors. I was going to buy Goo Gone but maybe I can find some Tile Magic. Thanks for asking this.

Well, I spent a good part of yesterday with a bottle of Goo Gone and it worked great!! Be sure to wash the floor afterwords, because it leaves the floor a bit greasy and very slippery.

I found the easiest way is to use vegetable oil, removed it quick and easy and you don't have to run out and buy expensive cleaners.
