    @kkintea nailed it with her concise reply, but if you want to read more details, take a look at the 3DOC and aging... how does the urethane stand up over time? thread.

    I referenced the old 0.16 Clear Urethane Discoloration thread, in my reply, when I stated that there was a batch of Urethane used in mid-2014 which seemed prone to cloudiness, but that it could be cleaned with a mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water, as outlined in that thread (with pictures). I was amused that the original poster, who posted this question because of concerns about the cloudiness in her (other brand) pouches, managed to use the same technique on them (only improving with Vodka, due to the absence of isopropyl alcohol readily to hand). I haven't seen the same tendency to cloudiness in any Urethane products used since then, and it also didn't uniformly show up with products from that period, but the cleaning method that @Darcy outlined in her report back in that post certainly worked!

    Have had mine for years and just did this to some of the older ones that were cloudy. I used textured round cotton pads. Easy and came out great! If they need to be hand washed, I do it after washing.
