Here's a link to some more suggestions. My favorite tool is Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I haven't tried it on sticky tape residue, but it's one of the solutions mentioned in this article

Use a hair dryer to heat the tape. Once it has become hot it should be easy to lift off. You can use WD40 to remove any leftover glue as it wont harm the paint or wood surfaces.
