I was wondering what everyone recomends to clean the fingerprints, dust etc off electronics?


I have a Pioneer elite reciever, with that gloss black finish, as well as a Silverstone HTPC case (brushed aluminum anodized), as well as your common source components. I found a cleaner but it says not to use it on clear plastic, or it will cause a haze. I don't want that!


I use a soft microfiber cloth to clean the dust etc but how do you remove those fingerprints, grime etc without "scrubbing" and scratching my gear....so what do you all recomend?

Thanks

There is a windex that is made for use on plexiglas and it should work fine. It will say "safe for plexiglas". Regular windex can cause a haze on plexiglas so it should not be used.

I haven't seen it in a while, but I still have a can of Endust for Electronics. It claims to be safe for computers, TVs, stereos, yadda, yadda. Otherwise, I'd go with AcuraCL's suggestion. If you're a real A/V nut-case like me, you might want to use distilled water, and once clean, keep a pair of white cotton gloves handy when you press the buttons. :D

I use this stuff regularly and have for several years. I use to buy it in grocery stores but now find it in electronic stores like Fry's Electronics. It does a creat job and part of its benefit is the reduction of static which attracts dust.

Personally, I use Guiness Extra Stout.


Foamy. Pleasant smell. Really adds depth to the black and covers those distracting logos and labels that I can't read anyway. Keeps the cleaning person happy too.


A little for the gear. A little for me. A little for the gear. A little for me. A little more for me. etc... Kinda like Graham Kerr in his prime.

What is good to use to clean my Yamaha NS-777's? Thay have a piano black finish, and all I've been using is a Swiffer duster, but I need to wip them down with something after having them for quite a while now.

Pledge won't damage either the plexy glass or paint. Also gives a good shine. I use it on my Parasound HCA 3500 while it's hot, and it does run hot, and it does not stain. Also on my Audio Research preamp. When I'm done I use it on my speakers too. Do Not spray anything onto the electronics though, just the rag.
