Best/easiest technique?

Ball burnished Zasker 6061 frame that i don't want to scratch. Current options are:

- Hot water and a green dish scourer.
- Degreaser: My finish line citrus degreaser seems to remove everything, not sure if it'll tarnish the frame though?
- Iso Propyl Alcohol or some similar solvent.

Will the scourer scratch the frame, is there a better option or things should definately not do?

Thanks :)

A heat gun used for stripping paint, warm gently and they will come off no problem.

Hair dryer worked for me last time, just need a bit of patience to get things warmed before you start peeling them off.
