comment Replacing a PIR light switch with a timer switch
From the Lutron site, it looks like the switch does not require a neutral. If that is the case, you would just use the black and red. Note that the switch you link to is a dimmer switch, not a timer.

NM wires and the plastic box were installed long after the house was built. I now have them in my 150 year old house. Good luck with it.

If the alcohol softened the finish, this would make it worse. You would have gummy material immediately clogging the sandpaper. Listen to @HenryJackson.

comment Is it possible that my GFCI receptacle is bad?
You are not supposed to have multiple GFCIs in series. If the outside one is a GFCI typw, it should not be connectd to the bathroom GFCI.
