I'm only seeing water soluble black or alcohol soluble any other colour but black. Not sure if I'm missing something? Ultimately though even if I am, I'm in Canada and they won't ship it to me right now because of the pandemic *sigh*

What a difference between start and finish! Beautiful job! I've been reading all I can before I try and restore a machine and some say to absolutely use no water...but you do successfully. Is it a matter of preference? Experience?

It is a matter of experience as you said. I use only water and dish soap by making a stiff foam and wipe down the machine to remove dust and dust on the surface. Not enough water to hurt the decal but you can stay away from them if you are unsure. Then proceed with the tut. This system really works if you take your time.
