    Okay. Well as I said, the Touch remotes I have (dating from when released as a new model) for whatever reason have not gotten sticky.

    Rubbing alcohol + baby oil

    Hi all,

    First post here after years of lurking.

    I reinstated my SBT after years in storage and found the same problem. I first disassembled the remote, then used cotton wool slightly soaked in rubbing alcohol to remove the sticky gunk. After that the surface felt unpleasant to the touch, so I then applied a small amount of baby oil onto a fresh pad of cotton wool, and "polished" the remote with it. It worked a treat, it now looks and feels fantastic.
