  • Yes, WD40 will take off most stuff. Just to be sure test on a a small area inside the door to make sure anything you use will not harm the paint.

    Petroleum based solvents should work. Try paint thinner, diesel fuel, kerosene or stoddard solvent. You can also try OOPS. Find it in the paint section of any hardware store.
