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?

My wagon interior is light grey and I removed some of the dye on the buttons when cleaning off the sticky stuff. Now I get to look at a small white spot on the volume button every time I drive the car.

It just sits there...mocking me...:mad:

It's funny how "we" will notice even our smallest errors. It really bugs me and I have tried to think of a way to cover it, but haven't been willing to try for fear of making worse.

Or maybe it's time to switch to decaf...

Point: clean with caution and use something mild and work your way up. For what it's worth...
