I put silicone on the foam surround of some speakers about 1995 based on the thought that this would slow them from crumbling into fine dust. It just doesn't work. They are long gone. So that's not the solution.
An FFT of my life would show a couple of peaks and some low level harmonics, but mainly random noise.

I wonder if Poly-Vinyl-Alcohol that is typically used as a release agent would work. If it doesn't you could probably just peel it off.
