I picked up this bike last week.
When I have washed hoods in the past...they get a little sticky.
I used dishsoap warm water and sponge.
Thank you everyone for all your help.
I'll keep looking and if I find anything I sure will post it in BIG LETTERS
Now to find the best way to clean hoods
Just set up an eBay search with a notification for 9 speed 105 or Ultegra hoods and if they pop up, grab them. Last I looked, about 10 years ago, they were rare as hen's teeth. I can't remember how they popped up, maybe on a set of broken shifters?
