Default What will remove the glue from "Mouse Glue Traps".

No, I am not trying to remove the glue from the traps. Those traps are
quite effective at catching mice. But it's also easy to get them stuck
to your hand, your feet, a pet, or your clothing, and darn near anything
else.

Is there anything (safe) that removes that glue?

I used the word "safe" because I once stepped on one of them barefooted.
It was next to the toilet and I went there in the dark during the night.
Next thing I knew, that thing was stuck to my toes. I went outdoors and
found that gasoline removed it from my toes. But I would not want to use
gasoline on a pet or on most clothing or other objects, and it's far too
easy to get into one of them traps by accident.

Suggestions????

I would try any food safe oil such as corn oil, vegetable oil, olive oil.

Yes, I had some of those which had instructions on how to release an
animal you have trapped and it said I'm 99% sure to use cooking oil.
