I use any of the 'Orange' based goo gone type cleaners for labels.

Be careful to have an absorbent tissue.  Once the black goo has been
dissolved, mop it up quickly - otherwise in the next few weeks you will
find black smears everywhere wnd wonder where they came from.

Kindest regards,

Doug Jackson
