I seated on a piece of electrical insulation tape with my jeans leaving one black glue mark that does not come out even after numorous cleaning attempts.

Just iron over it with a paper towel. Or failing that lighter fluid works a treat.

If you were in the UK, you could pop down to a shop called Matalan and get a new pair for 48.30 Rand - this would be cheaper than trying to clean them

Cellulose thinners soaked in and wahing or washing -up liquid rubbed in at rhe same time. this usually works but may need more than one app. Test on a hidden area first because thinners can dissolve or damage some fabrics. Good luck. this works for loads of other adhesives(co0ntact, super- glues atec. some brands and types work better ran others .EXPERIMENT!
