    How does one clean Gooey (recoil) Pads - without having the pad ooze? I have discovered not to use "Goo Gone."

    Just plane soap and water can do wonders on a dirty gooey pad...

    Stay away from petroleum products. I think I got some gun oil on mine and it turned almost liquid on the edges.

    Chemically, the softer urethane is compounded, plasticisiers will leach to the surface. This will cause the stickiness. Most urethanes will be attacked by petroleum and are more suited to exposure to water, ie; mild soap and water for cleaning as previously stated. The softer the urethane the more prone they are to a lack rebound. I never leave my Gooey pad guns sit on the pad for any length of time. It the rack is suitable, I leave the gun sit on the muzzle.
