I've never been a fan of Goo-gone but otheres seem to rave about it...It always seemed to not work or work too slow for me but I think my Micro-wave could work a little faster too... can you turbo charge one?
Your Idea, Steve of covering it with plastic wrap is great , It is now a new tool in my bag of tricks... how can one live so long and not think of all the good ideas themselves.  I'm sure that even mineral spirts with the soaking trick you mentioned would have been an improvement.
