If you are unable to rejuvenate it, I have a suggestion.

I have long suspected that Octopalm is simply a re-purposed item that has been available for years. The product is called "Pro Grip" (aka "Bowler's Grip). It can be found in the pro shop of many bowling alleys. It comes in a small jar which will last quite some time. I absolutely love the stuff. I tried a bar of violin resin. I would sand out some resin dust and rub it into my palms/fingertips, and it worked great...the only problem was that my skin had to be somewhat warmer than 98.6 in order for the resin to have any grip. Rubbing the hands together worked, but in Pro Grip I found a solution that didn't require that.

Might keep Pro Grip in the back of your mind!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

You might try putting your Octopalm in the microwave for a few seconds (5-10) at a time or place it in a bowl of hot water to see if it softens.

There is another product called "Gorilla Snot" used by drummers and guitarists that is similar.

Since I have used Gorilla Snot, I will warn you that less is more. It works but make sure you only use a very small amount.

If you meant to say "booger", then yes. Bugger has a totally different definition, especially in the UK. Lmao
