Is it kinda like a brown residue? If so, its from the braid, it does that when it gets used.. I think it is something to help the solder melt.. But, without pics I cant really tell you.. But, if it works then its fine..
Alright, I'll try and get some pics up, but with my Digi Cam it's going to be hard to get a good shot.

Using a 60w iron is a tad too much though... When your desoldering things, I find its best to actually put more solder onto the connection to get the existing solder to melt a bit easier. After that just use the braid to get the excess solder off... It takes practice. I normally use a 20w iron, but I use my 40w and get it gets the parts out in a fraction of the time.
Ill wait until i see some pics before i jump to conclusions..

I usually just gently scratch it off using a small flathead screwdriver... But acetone works too
That sounds like a bad idea lol
I just take some alcohol with a toothbrush (one i use just for this) and scrub it off. Makes the board all shiny clean
