Our local lab processed a 120 film but a 'sticker' got into the machine and as a reesult, there are bits of sticky residue left on the neg. Can anyone recommend a way to remove this muck without damaging the neg?

If it's the lab's fault the lab should sort it out for you - I would have thought.
Carabosse is right, the lab should sort it. However, this may be limited to them giving you a new film. Doesn't really save your negs. The best way to clean negs and slides of such things is with isopropyl alcohol - you can get it from the chemist. Then using a clean lint free, soft cloth, something like a lens cleaning cloth, you can clean the residue off the negs.
Lighter fuel (not butane) works nicely as a film/print cleaner, it's also cheap.
Do this work out with all other muck i.e. finger prints?!!
