Hm, hm.
I successfully cleaned many RK05 packs from gooey foam and other 
residue, even after a crash. But... I usually use 100% isopropylic 
alcohol and some cleenex.
And: The DEC manual says that one should be only carefully blow onto the 
platters; spitting onto them has to be avoided because the finish is not 
water proof...!
Ok, after days being submerged... We will see.
