[time-nuts] Removing thermal tape residue?

There is a layer like that on my LPRO-101 that I think is the 'thermal
conductor' designed to 'connect' the unit to the heat sink.

Or am I disoriented?

Is there a recommended way to remove the residue of what I presume was
thermal tape on the heatsinks of my various telco Rb units?  It's a slightly
tacky light greenish layer.  I'm guessing that for a permanent installation
one would want to remove that residue, smooth the surface, and replace with
new material for best thermal transfer to the heatsink.
