    Why? Because something was spilt on it:-) Are you asking how to clean your dash?

  • Some plastics degrade, over time, into a sticky mess. Ask anyone who uses a computer mouse that has one of those "soft touch rubber feel" coatings; in about 10 years of being covered in oils from human skin it too will be something you don't want to touch :)

This is a long known issue with dashboards from 2006-2008 Lexus ES & IS's (also affects the 2007-2009 Toyota Camry). Under the heat and sun they get shiny and sticky, with very little which can be done about it except replacement. Luckily, Toyota had a recall program named: customer support program ZE6. If this has never been done on your vehicle, it still may be a valid recall, meaning you should be able to get the dash replaced for free.
