Soak it with alcohol and blow it off with compressed air.

not as long as power is off. I wouldn't squirt it right into them, but I don't hesitate to get some on them.....gets the oil off them as well.

Be careful with the compressed air! It will blow contamanents into bearings and electronics if your not careful. I use compressed air and rubbing alcohol to clean mine. I wipe off as much as junk as I can before the compressed air is used. Also the alcohol is flammable and burns very hot. Flame is almost invisable too.

I use Wildcat Extreme Wash. I just started using it and it seems to work well.

Both IPA and Windex. Then just dry it off with a soft rag or old towel.

Windex
Be careful with the Windex. Windex contains amonia and it can cause corrosion on electrical contacts.

Glass Plus is a better choice since it does the same thing, but does not contain amonia.

I personally prefer just plain old rubbing alcohol. I buy about 6-8 bottles at the time at Wally World. You can add a teaspoon of Simple Green to the bottle if you like.

be careful with simple green, it is highly corrosive to aluminium.
