Honestly, that's how I did it on my car. I just left it there until I gutted the door.

I initially scraped off the majority of the goop with a putty knife. This just left a thin layer. After that, a large bottle of Goo Gone and a couple of rolls of paper towels did the trick.
Only did this on one door, though, as it was just stupidly time-intensive for the end result.
