Sticky Steering Wheel Buttons?

We've had our '02 E320 wagon for a couple weeks now.

I noticed that the steering wheel push buttons are "sticky" - they stick to your finger, as if they're covered with syrup or something.

Afraid to damage the finish, I cleaned 'em (and the st wheel) with mild soap (Woolite)and warm water. They're still just as sticky - almost as if the finish itself is sticky. Maybe damaged with some idiot goo such as Armorall or something?

I'm anxious not to ruin them with solvent - any ideas?

bet replacement with OE switches is $$$$

I was quoted about $180 at the dealer for a new set of switches. Not terrible but I think you have to remove the air bag to replace them. Let us know if Goof Off removes the sticky film without removing the painted on icons.
