To prevent the problem you can use a "cable path tape" that's a few inches wide and doesn't have adhesive in the center area to sully your stingers...I recall "Tunnel Tape" was a name brand of this product.
Finally, I use inexpensive carpet floor mats from office supply stores to throw over cables instead of taping them down. The carpets are $20-30 dollars for a 3x5' and come in a dark grey that doesn't show up in shots easily or show dirt. I also think they present a lower tripping hazard than a cable taped down to the floor.

I spent many a days in my early days cleaning cables at a rental house
Lots of Goo Gone or what others have mentioned but you have to be liberal with the stuff and that pile of paper towels or rags is very flammable-
