OK - jokes aside ....

Over time the rubber knobs on my Cobra VHF radio have become sticky ... not from jam or other gourmet application from fingers - but the knobs themselves !

Anyone know how to clean or remove this ? I've only ever seen this once before on an old car radio.

My temp reading gun which is always in a case is sticky like you dipped it in jam . 🙂

Yep ... that's it ...

Anyway - I prised the knobs of the radio ... came indoors and wife asked what I was doing ... I showed her the two knobs and she took them ... 3 minutes later clean and bright as new ! 

She used a paste called SPODRA ... its Latvian but a Russian product. Bit like Ajax scouring paste with a bit of lemon smell.

in english :

citrus-like cleansing paste - anionic surfactants <5%, odor, methylisothiazolinone, benzisothiazolinone
