Well I currently have that problem with fancy cars of Italian origins, and knowledgeable people told me the real solution is to take the parts out and send them to:
stickynomore.com (yes, their real name)
Parts get returned in two weeks, look like new and never get sticky again. At least that’s what I am told, and everyone in the business seem to agree. Haven’t tried it yet. Don’t know the cost either, might be way over the top for a joystick!
Another solution I heard was to wipe with isopropyl alcohol or goo-be-gone, but common sense tells me it’s just going to dissolve the top layer and your problem might reappear. Haven’t tried it either.
Darn rubber parts.

What's the best commonly available solvent for cleaning the rubber goo that used to be pressure
rollers, belts, feet etc.?
On a similar note, does any have a solution to firm up rubber that is
just starting to gooify?
I have some joystick feet that are just starting to get sticky.
