Hi Dave - you didn't gum up the water bottle by using proper screen cleaning liquid - it was probably somone previously using dish washing liquid which causes this common problem and can also lead to burnt out motors. Unfortunately I seen dozens of motors with this problem in my time - if you catch it early enough sometimes adding hot water will help dissolve the gunk and jelly like stuff. When you look through any drivers handbook they only recommend using proper additive
