Caulking tape removal

OK, I just freshly painted the bathroom and decided to add caulking tape across the top of the sink. I don't know, I was trying to be decorative and keep clean lines. Well, it looked like crap but when I took the cauking tape off, there is a lot of caulking residue. How do I get it off so I can touch up paint there and let it be? No snide remarks please I learned my lesson!! I just want that sticky goo off and it wont come off...oh, I just remembered I have krud kleener...but I better look and see if it will mess up the paint......

<sigh> Bathroom is almost done though

Caulking tape removal

Paint thinner, alcohol, lacquer are all good solvents. One should remove the adhesive. But they will also likely attack the paint.

Caulking tape removal

Thanks Bill. I don't care that it attacks the paint. I have 1/2 gallon left of the color to touch it back up and feather it in. Its newly painted last weekend so it will work. Appreciate the response.
