Dampen a clean cloth with Formica adhesive solvent. Wipe the solvent over the sticky glue to dissolve and loosen the glue.
Scrape up softened glue with a plastic scraper. Wipe the glue on a paper towel and continue to scrape up the glue residue.
Pour a quarter-sized amount of denatured alcohol on a clean cloth. Scrub the remaining sticky glue residue. Add more alcohol, if necessary, until the rest of the glue is wiped away.
Wet a clean cloth with warm water. Put a drop of dishwashing detergent on the wet cloth before squeezing out excess moisture. Clean your Formica countertop surface to make sure there's no adhesive solvent or alcohol residue left.
Rinse the countertop with a damp cloth, then dry the countertop surface.
