Ship it to me, I'll wrap it in red and ship it back.
I have a pair of computer mouses that sported some rubbery grippy zones that went to goo. I had success removing the liquifying grippy zone material with patience, q-tips and isopropyl alcohol. It worked because it was applied to a base of smooth plastic.
I still use both mouses and they both look & feel good.
I had a pair of portable radios covered in the stuff. My daughter cleaned one and I cleaned the other, using alcohol. Umpteen hours later both were cleaned enough to be usable again, but they sure weren't pretty and much of the silk screened controls text was gone.
Then my first red dot did the same thing. I threw it away. It just wasn't worth the time.
Don't know why I did not think of that, never hurts to shoot them an email.
Purple Power Industrial Strength Cleaner/Degreaser” because it is water-based, non-toxic, biodegradable, non-abrasive, and contains no solvents. It appears to work very well.
That is a shocker, in my experience anything that is labeled as "water-based, non-toxic, biodegradable, non-abrasive, and contains no solvents" generally does not work well at all.
I've used the stuff a lot on tractors and such, I'd say they lie a little about what's in it. Turned a Oliver mint green one time, it does talk oil and grease off good.
Purple power was the only thing that cleaned the white plastic on our honda dirt bikes. i always have it on hand.
