Default dumdum? gooey sticky stuff

I want to stick some plastic sheet behind the door cards to stop moisture but want to use something like they use in modern cars to stick it with - i.e it stays soft and can be scraped/peeled off, also want to use it to secure rattly trim bits etc. I think there used to be something called dumdum (maybe?) but I can't find it anymore. Any suggestions what to use (preferably something easily available)?

Dum dum putty, they stopped making it but this company has an alternative. I’ve not tried it before so can’t comment on how good it is, but anything else I’ve used of theirs has been pretty good

I used butyl on the roll for the windy winder mechanism, comes off not a problem.
