    Oxyclean and hot tap water. I use it to remove labels from beer bottles for home brew.

    I'm wondering if vinegar would get rid of the discoloration from the tape.

    I've used alcohol successfully on stubborn adhesives before...

    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    Eucalyptus oil. Excellent on the most stubborn newer sticky tapes and labels.

    Its not really an oil its full of solvents and had severy discolorations in a similar case. Maybe soaking in olive oil?


    I use Ronsonol cigarette light fluid to remove most stickers and adhesives. But your handle has the darker pattern and I don't know if it might go after that. If it is a silver inlay it would be OK.
