removing adhesive from engineered hardwood?

I just moved into a new place in which I had engineered hardwood installed before the move. As a result of all of the masking and packing tape etc. on the moving boxes, the floor is now covered in sticky patches of adhesive. I have tried vinegar and water, and I have tried Goo Gone. No success. Any brilliant ideas from anyone who's had the same glue-on-hardwood problem?

thank you both for these great suggestions. I am going to try polyclens as it sounds easier to find than crepe...will let you know how it turns out!
