I don't know if this is the right thread to ask but can some kind soul start Addcom an ADMSA180 MSX Cartridge Cleaner wiki? It is an one-of-a-kind "rom" that doesn't do anything electronically but cleans the MSX slot and MSX rom pins. Its contents are a cartridge with a plastic dummy PCB in it, a detergent pot (its contents have been dried up/used up so I cannot tell) and a plastic anvil-shaped device with a dent at both side. Though no elaborate description is available I can guess two usages; apply detergent to a dent then 1) slide the dent over the dummy pin, then insert the cartridge into the MSX to clean the slot or 2) slide the dent over a real MSX cartridge pins to clean them. I cannot predict what happens by powering the MSX with this cartridge neither I am eager to try. All the images are here.

Obviously each line was translated independently. The back of the box says;
Features
Addcom MSX Cartridge Cleaner is the cleaner exclusively for MSX cartridges and connectors. Using your precious cartridge or connector while being contaminated by dust, oxide and such may damage the ROM cartridge and the MSX itself. Therefore periodically cleaning with the MSX Cartridge Cleaner keeps the cartridge and connector constantly in the best condition and preemptively prevents error occurrence. Special materials are used therefore use does not damage cartridge or connector.
