Yes it can be helpful for remove old grip tape residue but not the tape as a whole. For removing old grip tape I like to first warm the tape with a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive. The tape will generally come off easier after doing this. With some of the real thin grip tapes that some of the manufactures are using even warming the tape does not help much. Actually soaking it in water for a half hour or so can help otherwise you have to very carefully peel or scrape it off the shaft.
