For years, perhaps even today, anglers bought and used pasty or oily line dressings. The paste or oil on the line soon trapped ever-present fine grit and turned the fly line into a virtual metal file, suitable for a jailbreak. I would not use 303 to "clean" my line [I use mild detergent] but 303 makes a wicked slippery line dressing that is NOT oily or gooey - it's dry - and makes a line shoot beautifully.
