Sticky Steering Wheel

Hi All,

I have a 1969 standard 3 horn button wheel. The issue is, after 30+ years in a box, the wheel has become sticky.
Has anyone had this problem with the standard wheel, and are there any remedies?

Do you have any of the little plastic arrowhead that goes in the wheel?

Update: I tried some mink oil on the wheel. Stickiness gone wheel feels great, and has a nice shine. I hope someone else can use this remedy. Thanks to all that replied.
