Just wondering if anyone have any advice on cleaning off sticky residuals that has developed over time on the soft touch black plastic components of Beolab speakers? I was told they don’t come off once that happens...

There is nothing you can do.

It’s the plastic itself that is degenerating.

Had that problem with a Beocom 2 charging base. Eventually the plastic just cracked.

It's a nightmare, I have had it on so many pieces, 2 beocom 2 chargers for a start 

 

sadly i am now having trouble with a beosound 6 I received from Evan a year ago, the black plastic parts have started to go sticky, very annoying indeed

There are some videos on Youtube where they cleaned the sticky thing with alcohol.

Think it all depends on how bad shape it is in.

I just clean it with benzin or isopropanol and than spray it with Plastidip.

I had some tools where the rubber had degenerated to a horrible sticky feel. I used an IPA spray and a bit of elbow grease with a cloth and now they are like new. You could try some rubbing alcohol if you have any cos its basically IPA. (Isopropylalcohol) Not drinkable BTW!

I find most IPAs are not drinkable.
