Windex on ivory keys: Did it remove the gray spots?

There was definitely an improvement after Mark scrubbed the whites and even the black key OFFENDERS with Windex. I don’t believe, however, that the gray will ever be totally removed because it had become ingrained into the keys by its introduction through supposedly “shoe-dyed” ebonies.
