Fixing ignition sicking problem

So I got a brand new ignition cylinder from a member on here that I will mostly likely just have on the side for a spare part now after I fixed my old one. I brung the lude to the honda dealership to have recalls fixed, they fixed them but when i got car back i noticed allot of grease on the key. Didnt think nothing of it at the time but the ignition started sticking the next day to the point i couldnt turn it. I just thought it went bad, as thats what the honda shop had told me also. long story short, I installed the new ignition and drove up there in the scion tc to find out I needed the car there also (they didnt tell me this only to bring keys) so this is why I took old ignition out of the closet. Before installing it I was like what the hell lets clean it first, I did and right off I noticed a big difference. Let it sit in a cup of gas and rinsed it a few times and it works just like the new ignition. I was so pissed and happy at the same time. Pics show just how much grease they slapped on it

its just happened all in this 3 day period that i lable one of the worse weeks of my life, so I didnt think about taking it out and cleaning it at all. The honda shop said it was nothing they did so I was at a dead end. so if yall are wondering why I didnt take it out and clean it first thing this is why. My brain was just scrambled after find out my motor was shot, ignition was shuting off while driving, backing into my fiance car, then getting stranded multiple times with ignition sticking.
