"Rubberized coating" of some type- Over time the COATING gets "STICKY". - How to remove the "Sticky"...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all, hope I can get some ideas.

Device: (Not really important as alot of devices get the same problem.)

Brand New several year old X-box 360 "type" PC controller- (Got it with a game several years ago)


As you guys know alot of small electrical hand held type devices have a "RUBBERIZED COATING" of some type that is either "sprayed on", or is part of the casting itself-

PROBLEM?
Over time the COATING gets "STICKY".

Anyone know of what can be used to remove the "STICKY"?

Thing is brand-new with ZERO run time on it and I hate to trash it.


PS: I've run across this with cell phones, radar detectors, etc... you pick up the device and go "yuck"... sticky, sticky, sticky...

Clean it with methylated spirits, that should help to dry it out a bit, See how it feels afterwards.
