    my satin neck has gotten quite sticky over the past couple weeks

    i thought i got some hair gel rubbed into it (lol) but now im not sure. Ive tried wiping it down with a big microfiber cloth + some water but it's still pretty sticky.

    how to clean it? Ive heard taking 0000 steel wool to it could be ok but im worried about doing it too much and wearing down the neck.

    It's satin clear coat or is it tung oil?

    Either way, I would try rubbing alcohol and a hand towel.

    If that doesn't work, then the finish must be reacting with acids from your body. In that case, zero steel wool might be a temp fix. But it could get sticky again. You won't wear down the neck, unless you pressed really hard and rubbed for a long time. Just be gentle.

    If it's tung oil, you could try a couple coats of oil, after cleaning with the alcohol.

    It's a satin clear coat. I'll try some rubbing alcohol and report back. Thanks
