Our vinyl clad wire shelves have become very sticky, and we can't seem to clean them. I have tried lots of products, and even pressure washing to no avail. Do any of you have a solution? Thank you so much.

The rubbing alcohol did the trick. Years of dust, grime, even hair wiped right away. Thanks for the tip.

I would try straight ammonia, be sure to use a mask and gloves and rinse well. It sounds like a greasy buildup, and ammonia will cut through it.

Thanks! These re in bedroom closets, far away from any grease, so I don't know. The shelves are about 20 years old, and so far we've had to replace them as nothing seemed to get it.


We wonder if maybe it's the termite spray that is used here? We're Northerners and have not had the problem there.

Maybe try WD-40 on an inconspicuous corner?
