Maybe others with more specific knowledge might correct me - but in my world, there’s not much that a drop of acetone won’t fix.

Lacquer thinner is usually the solvent of choice around me, but it's only because it is readily available. It's basically acetone diluted with xylene, toluene, and maybe some alcohol, it varies based on intended evaporation rate, which also effects the price.

If the adhesive is anywhere near ABS edge tape, only use ABS cleaner. Anything stronger - eg. thinners - will melt/damage the tape.
