    after many months of use my lead screws are black. I wipe them occasionally, and dry lube them but they look like they could use a 'deep' cleaning. and everything squeaks and groans as it moves which i think is another clue that things need cleaned. Are there any good or recommended ways to clean the lead screws? any tricks that work well, cleaners that work well, etc?
