sticky stuff on my new powerhead..

I just bought 2 new power sweep 228's, and am about to start cycling my tank.. the power sweeps have a sticker on them and when I removed them it left behind some adhesive.. I'm trying to get it all off using hot water and a paper towel.. will this be ok?

I bought one for my FW tank last week. the stuff is like glue. Oh, that's because it is glue. I didn't get it off, but was trusting enough to assume that if it was on their it shouldn't be dangerous to my fish. You could try nail polish remover, but then you risk putting something you know is dangerous in your tank.

Ignorence is bliss!
