CLEANING DIY: REMOVING STICKY RUBBER from old rubber or plastic.
So you have old rubber or plastic that has become sticky and gummy. I had an old ON GUARD (OG) bike cable lock i got years ago ( https://amzn.to/2JOhyxh ) with rubber parts starting to break down and got sticky.

I made a quick video on how to remove old sticky rubber from rubber parts and plastic. All you need is TOOTHPASTE!!! Any cheap too paste will do ( https://amzn.to/2y7pD9x ) and a terry cloth or box of shop rags ( https://amzn.to/2SAtQfr ) you plan to use get dirty or throw away later. I used a whitening toothpaste from my bathroom and an old terry rag.
You want to put the toothpaste on the sticky rubber. Massage and coat the sticky parts. Then use a DRY terry cloth rag to rub and polish the toothpaste and sticky rubber off. This will remove 70%-80% of the stickiness. Put a second coat on, and use another side of the terry cloth and rub the toothpaste and sticky rubber off again. After the second pass, the plastic should clean. Do a third pass if you like.
Then rinse off with water and test the stickiness. It should be clean and polished with the toothpaste. Most of the gummy rubber will transfer to the rag with the toothpaste.
Wash and reuse the rag, or clean more sticky items before disposing of the rag.
DONE! Simple, and no harsh chemicals!
