Maybe there was a buildup of a polish in and around the handles that contaminated your wipes.
I had a problem once with blue wipes. I had them in their original wrap and 12 of them were wrapped again into a Costco bundle. I stored them in a metal cabinet which also held unopened bottles of motor oil. The vapors from the oil had permeated the product wrappings and ruined the wipes for my use. Took me a few minutes to figure out why all of a sudden I had a problem, then it dawned on me, I used a new roll of wipes on that door.
Hope you figure it out soon, keep us informed.
Nothing I hate worse that when a thread as this gets forgotten and we never learn what the solution was.
great line of thinking and I'd like to add to that scenario...Perhaps the pocket under the handle collected the G&WR and he didn't get to wipe it down while wet to collect the particles risen to the top, or perhaps silicone was sprayed on the handles. That's very plausable.
In any case, the posts in here are great to give Brad ideas on what to look for, how detailed oriented things have to be, and a direction to start looking. Unfortunately, not all problems can be handled on-line and solved. Hope this isn't one of them. Keep us posted.
