Never tried peanut butter, but if it works, let us know. Sounds novel.
I used a combination of solvents (tried several before I found the one that dissolved the shoe material), then used chrome polish (it was a chromed pipe) to get the remaining residue off. So for you, try maybe laquer thinner, then toluene, then mineral spirits. There are some others too, like methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, xylene, naphtha, turpentine. Then use your favorite polish for your system.
You should be able to scrape some off with a plastic putty knife, about $0.95, at your local hardware store. That reduces your work with the solvents or peanut butter. You could also just buy peanut oil at the grocery store if that really does the job.
