If anyone hasn't mentioned it already, you can try electrical contact cleaner. You can find it at any home center.

My X button is very sticky, I dont know why, but i play MW2 alot and it can be an important button, but I know it was my sister who got it sticky because she's always eating and playing, she plays LBP alot, and X is the main button pretty much.

Good story. Did you read thru the thread and try some of the solutions? Which worked best?

Like I said alcohol and Q-tips are good. So are wet wipes or just a damp wash cloth if you remove the lint first.

Do this at you own risk but it worked for me. I was feeling too lazy to open the controller so I put a little hand sanitizer on the offending button and just pressed the button a few times to work it in. Seems to have worked like a charm and since the sanitizer is mostly alcohol I'm fairly certain any excess harmlessly evaporated. May be what you're looking for if you're too lazy or insufficiently skilled to disassemble/reassemble a controller. If this was previously suggested I apologize.
