Well it is a gear stick.

Take the console off and give what's left a good clean.

Use Rubbing Alchohol

Pour the purest rubbing alchohol on it that you can find. 91% is what I used for this problem (I think you can get 100% which is best). It works on radios and electronics too because the alchohol is not conductive. I have even heard that it works on cell phones. The only problem is that you have to air it out because the smell of the alchohol is very strong, but it will wash away soda and other gunk for good...

Drain Cleaner: The most common type are liquid caustic solutions containing sodium hypochlorite NaClO(bleach), sodium hydroxide (lye), or potassium hydroxide in concentrations up to 40 percent. These are used to dissolve grease and hair clogs.

As you can see above "These are used to dissolve grease and hair clogs.". Your main problem is the hair clogs. Just get some Draino and problem is fixed.

NOTE: I would not recommend pouring this stuff into your shifter.
