stuhayes2010: Who cleans a $1.50 set of cards?

I remember my mom doing this a few times when I was in elementary school.  I wondered the same thing then and this was 20+ years ago.  I only remember her doing it on maybe two specific decks so maybe they were sentimental and/or lucky.  Or maybe my dad was being a cheapskate and why spend $1.50 when maybe $0.10 of cornstarch will do?
