    I have a residue on my ruler base for my longarm and I'm not
    sure what to use to clean it. It is from the protected cover
    that was on it. After I peeled it off it left the residue.

    GooGone is a good product. There are others out there that work too.

    This is what a teacher told me to use also.

    Ruler rules
    Clean acrylic rulers with a soft cloth and a mild soap-and-water solution. Donít use solvents, abrasives, or alcohols to clean rulers as they may damage the acrylic or fade the ruler markings. Some of my rulers get a used-tape residue because I highlight certain measurement marks with tape. For these, I squirt dish soap directly on the stickiness and allow it to sit for a half hour or so, then I rinse it off under warm water while I rub the area with my fingertips. It works like a charm.
