Stick tack off helmet shield? How?

So I experimented with one of those fog-free add on stick things (by Oxford). Didn't do much against condensation in the winter so I took it off. It left the glue outlineo and I can't get it off.

Anyone know of any solvents or tricks to get it off? I've tried rubbing alcohol to no luck and I have a feeling goof-off might work but could eat away at the shield in the process...

Tire grade should be fine as long as you follow up with armor-all

Soap and water might work, depending on what the glue is based on. Since alcohol didn't touch it, I'm going to assume it's water based and not alcohol based.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Lighter fluid or white gas. Naptha, basically. Zippo brand seems to work the best, won't hurt the plastic.

Wd40? Just make sure your shield isn't chain grade.

Won't that cause your helmet to fill with water?

De-solv-it
It's a citrus based solvent. I've used it a lot and on painted surfaces like the tank and fenders to get sticker residue off and it works without harming the finish.
