Perhaps it is the alcohol. Maury used Clorox Wipes, which (I’m guessing) are bleach-activated. William’s machines were cleaned using isopropyl alcohol.
Anyone else care to speculate?

I understand the limit imposed by the forum, but every 2000 or 2100 I have stripped down looks green, when it has not been completely cleaned! I have done over a dozen of them. 91%Isopropyl alcohol will completely remove all residue from the cases after soaking for at least two days. All you have to do is rinse the cases with high pressure water.
