1. Soak a soft (old, soft, 100% COTTEN t-shirt/diaper/sock) with PREMIUM (no sugars added) VODKA (grey goose etc) ....(unfortuately Rubbing/Isopropal gives a haze)

If GUNK came from adhesive stickers - wipe with olive-oil.
Repeat - Vodka treatment

4. Clean again with vodka.

5. Set aside for a day
