".... but then how to remove the resulting glop?" that's where the TSP in hot water comes in. Wear gloves and Eye protection especially on the ceiling.
it's too bad there isn't a standard way to tell whether or not the surface is clean enough. In my aerospace days we used UV lights to detect contaminants on or in transducers that would come in contact with liquid oxygen (LOX).
The procedure would be to fill the pressure transducer with Trichloroethylene, shake it up, then shake the fluid onto a filter paper and look at it under a UV light. Any containment would immediately show up as fluorescent bright green. I'm. not suggesting that solvent but it would be interesting to see if you could borrow a UV light to try to detect the glue residue. Has anyone used a UV light to detect glue?
Sorry no suggestions on an easier application method.
