Default Removing tape marks?

I had to use duct tape to hold my plastic sheets to the ceiling during drywall work. Blue tape couldn't do it with the humidity and/or cooking film on it. What can remove the duct tape residue from the semi-gloss paint? I'll be painting the ceiling. Thanks.

I have used Goo Gone, Goof off or lacuar thinners but be carefull you don't take the paint off. My first attempt would be Goo Gone.
