this sticky stuff is rice glue, the material of choice for mounting prints for centuries. It is neither acidic nor dangerous for your prints, bu it simply does not look nice, even on the verso of a print.

In most cases such residues can be removed easily: Wetten the residues with water (non acidic, non chlorinated) with a cotton swab, wait a few minutes (the residue swells and turns almost transparent) and scrap it off with a thin blade or scalpel. If necessary, repeat the procedure. Finally, wetten again several times with water, remove remaining glue and dry between plotters.
