3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner is not expensive, is readily available and is an excellent solvent that will not harm paint and leaves no residue. Your garage should have some. A can like this will last you a long time, buy some for christ's sake - o yeah, the KLR thing :

Read the MSDS you may be shocked at what all is in there. I would not consider it safe on most plastics.
