Default Sticky stuff on the leatherette wrist bar of Control 24

Anyone have this problem? The front wrist rest of my Control 24 has develop a lot of sticky residue on the rubbery surface...its almost like the sticky residue that is left behind when you remove a label from something. Can't seem to get it removed and have tried a number of cleaners...

Help!

Is this the same kind of sticky residue like on the JBL LSR monitors? If so, there are lots of videos and suggestions about cleaning it off. I think scrubbing with Goo-Gone to get the sticky off followed by alcohol to get the Goo-Gone off was one method.

And, if all else fails, recover it with a nice piece of leatherette from a fabric store

You can also sand it down, and have it powder coated.

I rubbed for quite a while with 97% Isopropyl alcohol. After the sticky stuff comes off, there's another layer of a black glossy substance. If you keep rubbing there's a nice, smooth grey surface under that. I attached a photo
