sticky steering wheel?

Leave my top down a lot. If it is a little humid and or cool the steering wheel is sticky the next morning.

Is there a product to protect it without making it too slippery or dangerous?

Have you used anything on it recently... like Lexol?

Here's why I ask. If you use Lexol (and some other leather conditioners) you need to make sure the surface is super clean or the treatment will become sticky in humid weather. Dont ask me why this happens, but I used Lexol for a long time before I found there are better products out there. My seats were always sticky a few days following treatment.

Didn't use anything on the wheel?

My guess then is that the wheel just needs to be cleaned. Try a leather cleaner (not conditioner) or Woolite/Water mix. People have used the Mr. Clean magic eraser too (search on that one).
