Well i said DUCK just out of being so use to the brand names around here haha sorry

didnt even notice,

also i found this


On carpets: Try spraying the goo residue down with WD-40 - let it soak for a while, then follow with a spray-in rug shampoo. Let dry and vacuum. Repeat.
It eventually does go away. That's why they make Gaffer Tape - to hold rugs and cords down and can be removed without leaving the residue.

from here:
