Cleaning rubber goo

I've been wondering if methyl salicylate  (oil of wintergreen) would do
a decent job.  Usually, it's used to restore plasticity to dried-out
rubber (one common treatment for hard typewriter platens is "Rubber
Renu", which is MS in a solution of xylol).

Nice fresh minty smell.  Good for your arthritis.  I haven't tried it
yet as a goo solvent.
