S**t on the base of my board

So like every new board I have the gunk on the base from the square packet the co. Sticks on it along with some little damn sticker. Well I peeled both off and I was wondering what I should use to get the leftover residue off before I wax it for the first time.

Suggestions?

Goo gone will do the trick. Or, you can go to Home Depot and pick up a spray bottle of citrus cleaner for like $6 (I forget the brand name). I've used that same bottle for the past 3 seasons and probably will have it for the next 3. It's pretty much the same as goo gone but you get WAY more product for just a couple dollars more...and you can use it around the house too

Just hot wax that area and scrap while the wax is warm buff it with the green scoth pad from the super market.. Than wax the rest of the board like normal.

Same here. Hot wax will get all the crap off the board as well as anything that may be in the pores that you cannot see.

Well the only reason I asked is because I didn't want to use something that would mess up the base permanately. I mean what is the base cleaner? Just some everyday house cleaner, something like orange glow or what?
I really don't want to spray something on the bottom and see horrible results a few day later.

Sorry for the noob question, I promise I'm no nube but it's just my first "new" board...

They should have base cleaner at any sporting good store where they sell skis or boards. If you don't get the residue off, don't worry too much about it. It will come off once you go ride anyways.
