Paint on rubbery material is sticky? Answered

I used spraypaint (krylon fusion for plastics) on a material kind of like the plastic ruberry outside of wires, cables, cords, etc. It feels really sticky to the touch and I don't even know if I want it on anymore (I don't mind either way). What's the best way to go about this? If I wait long enough will the paint dry and stick to the material? Or should I remove the paint, and how?


That last sentence is worth 100 comments!

The paint is dissolving the plastic, eating it away like an acid. Time to replace the cables/wires/cords.
