What to do with shuttlecocks with 'sticky' heads?

    Hi all,

    I just uncovered a tube of Wilson WS600 shuttlecocks in my cupboard, which have been kept for almost a year or two. I took them out for a game, and while they still work decent, the head of the shuttle gets a tad sticky, and the white stuff tends to stick on the strings.

    Am curious if there are any 'solutions' to solve this - else they'll sadly have to be trashed... :crying:
