Sistine chapel was cleaned safely with what? Reporting from Rome.

I’m in Italy and yesterday we went to Tivoli which is just outside of Rome. The wonderful Villa D’Este and its gardens are one of the main attractions. Just outside the entrance of the Villa D’Este is a church attached to the palace we found open (Ever wonder why the American forefathers wanted a separation of church and state?!) and so we stepped inside. Inside the church, as far as art work and architecture, there is nothin’ to write home about if you know what you are looking at. But there was a side chapel under going a cleaning. Wow! Is it dirty. See the photo and learn what they used to clean the Sistine Chapel celling safely. The answer I know to be true from personal experiences and knowing the people who worked on the project:
