I use a dry wash cloth until it all comes off.  Also when applying the adhesive in the a.m., I use the very least amount.  It holds well and does not ooze out when I am eating.  The less used gives the better result.

You can swish listerine around for about 30 seconds. The alcohol should get it off easily.

I recently bought Secure and love it. Only need a little. Also, doesn't leave alot of residue when you take your teeth out. Holds better than the others I tried. (See Youtube). Can't find in store only on line. In DE HELP!!!!!!

Get mouthwash with alcohol   and swish around. The alcohol loosens the adhesive. Or you could just do a couple of shots of tequila.

I use hot water and swish it round and round in my mouth and than after spitting ,the adhesive is loose or soft enough to take out. My other remedy which really really works is to chew chewing gum. Once all adhesive is gone the gum goes too.

I changed to Sea Bond Strips for both the upper and lower dentures - no more oozing or gunk to unstick from the roof of my mouth. I find though that the bottom plate becomes loose after many hours - solution : I squeeze Fix O Dent cream onto the bottom plate only ; then place a Sea Bond Strip over the Fix O Dent cream. The combined cream and strip seem to offer an all day hold. Make sure to moisten the Sea Bond Strips with water, which in turn holds the strips in place and activates the adhesive. My denturist told me that coffee and tea stains the dentures - the soaking solution for dentures to remove these stains can make the dentures brittle. I wake up each morning and drink my coffee without my dentures in. I then pop my dentures in without using any adhesive and eat my breakfast. I do this step because you shouldn't eat anything for 2 hours after applying adhesive - that is, if you want a good strong "all day hold" . After breakfast I brush my dentures with a sensitive based non abrasive toothpaste. I brush my gums and roof of my mouth as well. Then I place the Sea Bond Strips on my dentures and put the dentures in my mouth. I love the fact that I don't have to deal with the ooze any more. My new teeth look phenomenol and my confidence has soared.

If using adhesive, like Fixodent or Polygrip does not work, they may not be sized properly.  May need relignment

We agree with Tammy. If you have had this issue for that long, it sounds like you need to see your dentist for an adjustment. Unfortunately, Ill fitting dentures cannot be made to fit by the use of adhesive. They need to fit well first. Please keep us updated!

I do the same thing
.I add paste to the denture. Apply adhesive. Dampen . them add very small amount of paste on top of adhesive and insert. Great hold and no extra paste ooze. Tooth paste and a denture brush removes it from my mouth. Rinse with peroxide and I'm good.

If you are having trouble with adhesive residue, here are a few things to try. Rinse your mouth with hot water (only as hot as is comfortable) and gently brush your gums with a soft-bristled toothbrush and regular toothpaste. Alternatively try to gently rub away the remaining adhesive with a damp cloth or gauze and a small amount of cooking oil.

You can also rinse your mouth with a mouthwash. We don't recommend picking the residue because it could irritate your mouth and gums. You may want to experiment to see what amount of product is best for you.

Baking soda in warm water. Rinse and the goo dissolves. Including Secure. I use baking soda cleansing tablets for my denture too.
