Why is icky pic so hard to clean? It's not — if you have the right icky pic cleaner. The stuff is 'icky' is because the gel is a petroleum-based, highly viscous fluid that resists water and weak solvents. You'll find icky pic on all the cables that are engineered for outside plant, and they're usually the stranded 'loose tube' cables. In addition to being messy the gel is highly flammable. So getting a good solvent is a huge time-saver.
