Peanut butter will absolutely get it gone. Apply, wait a while, at least a few minutes, then wipe off. It won't reappear in a week or so like some other solutions.

This topic has been covered a few times. Take a look down through this section of the forum. I've had had good luck with a plain old tooth brush.

Bug and tar remover or WD-40 work pretty well. Some swear by peanut butter.
