Has anyone else noticed their rope lights and rope light motifs that are more than a couple of years old going sticky or slimy? I first saw this with some bulk 24V LED rope light I bought from the Gold Coast guy a number of years ago. It was stored in a plastic tub, and when I went to use it a year or so later it was very sticky. It had never been directly exposed to the sun. Now the same thing has happened to a few of my LED rope light motifs. They as a little discoloured, but still look fine at night. Every time I touch them though I have to wash my hands as they have a slimy feel to them now.
