If I understand correctly, the OP apply silicone on the strings to reduces the friction between the main and the cross which leads to better string snapback. The lubricant can grease up the balls though which makes them dirty. I personally put a little bit of baby oil on my sweet spot and move the strings around a bit and then wipe off the excess with tissue/ cloth. THe balls doesn't get dirty for me but the effect diminishes quickly unless I reapply frequently.
