You can clean off the sticky material by removing the seal from the end of the plunger and then aggressively washing your seal with very hot, soapy water and a paper towel multiple times if needed. The stickiness tends to occur when an AeroPress has been sitting idle so a way to avoid stickiness in the future is to use your AeroPress regularly. Alternatively, you can buy an inexpensive replacement seal from our website, aeropress.com. We now make the seal of silicone, a material that will not develop stickiness.
