I don't want the new membrane to get off to a bumpy start, so I'm going to have to have a think about how to get the old sticky stuff off. IPA barely makes a dent in it. What did you do?
I was really lucky-most of the glue came off with with membrane. The bits that did stubbornly remain I rubbed with my fingers, pushing them until they rolled into little balls of glue and then I picked them off. I only used alcohol once everything was clear just to be sure it was absolutely clean.
