Rubber focus & zoom rings sticky on a stored lens

I just dug up my old AF Nikkor 18-70mm 3.5-4.5 DX lens, thought I'd try it on my new D7500. The lens has been stored for years in a plastic box and it's rubber parts have turned sticky. Probably all kinds of stuff from my hands have gotten into it years ago.

Has anyone cleaned such lens and how?
