How do I get sticky residue off panels (from packing, shipping, storage)?
Sometimes the backing gets on the front of the next panel based upon how it was stored and/or shipped.  For small areas of residue, you can generally scrape it off with your fingers or a non-abrasive pad.  Use 70% rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to remove the rest.
