I can no longer get Bounce Dryer Bars; when I removed the holder from my dryer, it left a sticky residue inside my clothes dryer. How do I get rid of it.

The sticky residue is likely the adhesive that held the dispenser in. Try using rubbing alcohol and a cloth to remove it. After completing the remove leave the dryer door open for 30 minutes to ensure all the rubbing alcohol has evaporated.

Is this in the right section, Cars and Trucks? Or are you talking about a cell phone screen protector. You can use some rubbing alcohol to remove tab glue. You can also try the non-sticky side of scotch tape or wd-40 as discussed in the thread here:

You need to clean the scanner glass. If you have rubbing alcohol that works best for removing any goop such as white out or adhesive from sticky notes, the two most common causes of print defects that I see on the job.

Sharp front panel replacement for 42" LCD t.v. (Black)

I just removed my sticker today, and the sticky adhesive would not come my tv either. I tried alcohol first and to that only worked a little. Then I even tried warm soapy water(thats what sharps customer service told me to do) but that didnt work. So I put a razor scraper inside a rag with soap and water on it and that put little scratches on my new shiny black bezzel which made me very mad. The scratches arent really bad but who wants that on a new tv. FINALLY THE ONLY THING THAT WORKED WAS THE WD-40 NO MESS PEN. YOU RUB THAT ON THE STICKY ADHESIVE THEN WIPE OFF WITH WARM SOAPY WATER, WORKS REALLY WELL ONLY DID IT 2 TIMES. TO BAD I DIDNT DO THAT BEFORE ALL THE SCRATCHES. IF YOU DONT HAVE THE PEN I THINK YOU CAN JUST SPRAY REGULAR WD-40 ONTO A RAG AND WIPE.

Adhesive on screen

Rubbing alcohol or a soapy water solution using a soft cloth or paper towel would work fine without scratching your screen

A problem with my psp

Use lighter fluid. It works perfectly. Rubbing alcohol also works well, but lighter fluid works the best and won't take off paint or anything on your psp. Just be sure not to let any lighter fluid get inside the psp. Put some lighter fluid on a paper towel or cloth and rub the sticky adhesive off.
