Goo gone, fast orange hand cleaner. Fresh citrus can also break down Mose pitches that build up on hand tools.

Goo gone or goof off or something like that melts it right off. The one in the spray can.

I bought a can of the Stihl trimmer cleaner and it smells just like wd40 does a good job though.

100% biodiesel or D-Limonene solvents. Steel wool is always a good idea. Acetone will work. Not to be used near potential sources of ignition. The above are a lot less explosive.

Brake cleaner. Dissolves/cleans and then evaporates.
