I've got some old chairs that appear to be covered in a material like vinyl, and they are covered with a severely sticky residue. Like a thick layer of it. It's like the residue left behind by a sticker, but lots of it. What's the best way to remove it? The manufacturers' note states that it should only be cleaned using water and mild soap. No solvents or abrasives should be used.
I've read this thread
and other similar pages on the internet, and there's so many different products recommended. Is there one right answer? Or one answer that's better than the others?
Should I disregard the manufacturers' warning against solvents? Is this just a by-product of the material itself?
