What you are seeing is grease from your hand, not water residue.
To remove it use pure alcohol such as surgical spirit or iospropyl alcohol ( IPA ).
Moisten a paper towel and dab it onto the effected area until the contamination is removed.
If your hands are naturally damp, wear rubber gloves, like the surgical spirit, they can be found at a chemist (drug store), often called surgical gloves.
