Long story short, I applied some Eternabond to the slide side, and some of it got jammed, removing the cover and spreading the 'glue' onto the vinyl and carpet. I've since removed the Eternabond from the slide, but still have the clean-up to do inside. Any suggestions for safely removing it? I used gas on the outside and it worked well on the fiberglass, but I'm worried it will stain or discolor the vinyl, and I'm stumped on the carpeting.

Whatever you end up using, test it first in as obscure a location as possible in case it causes a visable deterioration to the material.
My first suggestion would be "GOO GONE" a common product available in most big box and hardware stores. Goo gone
And even it will suggest testing in a small area not readily visable.

If gas did a good job removing it, paint thinner should also, and would be unlikely to stain. But could easily damage either the vinyl or the carpet. Whatever you try, use a little on a Q-tip in an area not visible to check for that before you tackle the big job.

Mineral spirits, which is the main ingredient in Goo-Gone, removes most tape residue. Plus, it probably will not stain the vinyl or carpet. Try a small are first as suggested.

I would check with Eternabond for what they recommend.

I used Goo Gone on the vinyl and it worked a treat. Cleaned up the floor after with some Spray 9. Still not sure what to do about the carpet, I'll try some Goo Gone on a section under the slide to test with a scrubber.
