That horrible rubbery plastic coating that turns sticky

 I hate that horrible rubbery plastic coating, that they sometimes put on small electronic devices, that turns sticky after a year or three .  If I want to keep using the device, I have to remove the coating which has turned sticky, which is a major undertaking.

To clean the rubbery coating I need to use eucalyptus oil, ti tree oil, citrus oil, alcohol, propyl alcohol or a mixture of one or two of them and some old cloth.  The process is messy and time consuming.

Just stop it.
