according to sterling-carcare.com:

"There are many solvents that will remove the adhesive/glue left on thepaint when you strip off the stripes. The best one I have found is MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone). MEK is a strong solvent and should not be allowed to dry on the paint surface. You can find this product at either a hardware or paint store. It will not damage the paint if you follow the following steps. Moisten a cotton rag to use in softening the adhesive. Follow this step immediately with a second cotton rag to wipe up the residue. The MEK will remove all wax or polish you have applied to the paint and you will need to make a new application."
