DMSO addition to sequencing

I was wondering what other people have experienced using DMSO to clean
up dirty sequences.  We have noticed that adding DMSO severely decreases
the signal, and only occasionally actulally helps the data. We are
wondering if this is normal.  Is there a specific purity/manufacturer of
DMSO which is recommended for this purpose?  Our DMSO is over 2 years
old, could this be a problem?
