Cleaning top inside of old Plano tackle box

I have an old Plano plastic tackle box that I am trying to clean up. It has these places on the underside of the lid. I’ve tried a few different things to clean it up to no avail. This box has been stored in attic and in unheated area for 25 plus years. Any guess as to what it is and how to clean it?
