I had the same problem on a 99 in south Alabama. I tried every cleaner in the house and nothing worked. I finally tried some TSP and it worked great. You must remove it from the car because the clean-up was very messy.

I thought I would follow-up to the post I added back in March 2010. I used Sol-U-Mel to get rid of the stickiness on my '99 Honda Accord center console. I was afraid it might come back after the hot summer in Central Florida. I am happy to report that it did not! The Sol-U-Mel seems to have done it. Yeah!

My wife's 2000 Accord has the same sticky residue on her console and after trying every cleaning product I could think of, heeded your advice. After about 2 hrs of soaking, scrubbing, and washing with Sol-U-Mel, the stickiness is GONE!! I had forgotten what all that plastic looked like clean!! Thx for the tip!!

I had this problem too. I ended up scraping off the layer of gunk with a razor blade, and then applied Armor-All. Kind of troublesome but it worked well. It seems not to have recurred.

got the same problem as most car owners. The youtude on fixing sticky melting dashboard will be a faster way to resolve the problem. I had my done one year ago. It doesn't come back anymore.

I've delt with the sticky console for quite awhile.. I think I used Armarol on it and it became sticky.. I also live in hot climate, south Florida. Anyway, after reading many posts and seeing different chemicals people were saying would work.. I used plain old rubbing alcohol. It worked great!! It removed all the black gooy substance. I used a few rags and a small bottle of rubbing alcohol.. I did another go at it. With a tooth brush in the corners.. It looks great and now I can finally use my console.. Good bye sticky goop.

The thread might be dead but I would like to confirm that rubbing alcohol does work very well. Thank you Pdub2ftl for that piece of advice.

My 2001 Honda Accord has the same sticky console & the horn area of the steering wheel. Can you tell me if the rubbing alcohol solution was long lasting?

Thanks!

I used full strength Murphys oil soap and it got all of the sticky stuff off, but it takes a little work. Its the only thing I found that worked.
