Try Goof-Off, which will likely work, but may require a fair amount
of the stuff at a premium price to do a large area.
If you don't mind messing with the stuff, I have found that gasoline
makes a pretty good solvent for carpet adhesive. Let it soak, scrape
gently with a putty knife, finish by rubbing with wire wool. If you
have enough elbow grease it gets there eventually. Apply all
admonitinos, advice and safety precautions for working with flamable
solvents. I did this one successfully:
If youi don't klike gasoline, then mineral spirits may work, just
slower, more time consuming (lots of time). Try a spritz od WD-40
(which is mostly mineral spirits).
