Weird topic title, i know.  I recently bought Castlevania DS from gamestop, used.  When I went to put in the cartridge, I noticed it was EXTREMELY sticky on the back.  I don't know if some dumb fuckwad put a sticker on the back of the cartridge or what, but I got a new DS lite and I baby the hell out of it.  So, i'm looking for something that could remove the stickyness.  I could take it back, but it's hard to find so I would rather try to fix this.  Also, it's a 30 minute drive one way.

To clarify, it is so sticky that if I press my thumb against the back, I can flail my arms and do jumping jacks and it does not budge.  I got some of the stickyness off, but it's still a little more sticky than i'd like.

Most oils will do it if you let them sit on the residue for a little bit, mineral oil, vegetable oil, etc..  You can also try rubbing alcohol.  I'd be really, really careful of the contacts, though.

the contacts are okay, i assume.  they look fine and don't seem to have anything visibly wrong with them.

it's just the back of the cartridge.

There's this stuff called Goo Gone. It works pretty well, and you should probably be able to find it at a hardware store or something.
