Adhesive/sticky residue

Yes I know this is an odd query but would be surprised if this hasn't happened to someone else.  I somehow managed to pick up some sticky residue that looks like glue or tack from one of the benches in the gym last week. Are there any tips for removing it? I tried a hot iron over kitchen roll but that did't do much good.

    Relax, it's just natures' way of letting you know that your male plumbing is working fine. 
     
    Next stop - pick up some Vaseline.

    I am confused. Where is this sticky substance now and what were you touching when you came into contact with it?

    Try a solvent , yes WD40 can work well, you can then remove the WD40 with a strong detergent. 
    Or a concentrated citrus solvent cleaner would work. 
    Depends on what the substance is of course. 

    Ignorance: Reassuringly Expensive.
