Default Slippery residue on trim

Doing an apartment repaint and while I was prepping the trim I ran into some sort of slippery residue on a lot of the trim. It feels a lot like silicone,and if it was only around window sashes I might assume that. My guess is some sort of furniture polish type of product. Any ideas on how to remove it? Krud Kutter doesn't seem to Kut it.

Our go-to degreasing solvent is Varnish Makers' and Painters' used with the disposable shop rags. Switch rags often to avoid re-contaminating the surface.
