And Benzene Is Out Of The Question

Ugh. Every time somebody says "Dip a Q-Tip in Windex and rub it on the contacts in your NES" or anything similar, I feel like I'm gonna chunder. In fact, the second I see the word 'dip,' I become infuriated, because I know what's coming next. I suddenly start hating the word 'dip.' Urgghhh.

It's bad enough trying to be a purist, going out of the way to get pure isopropanol, just to ensure the life of my system while keeping it clean and in performing condition. I even shun rubbing alcohol unless I absolutely need it, and then the purity has to be in the 90th percentile. I don't wash my car with Windex because you're not supposed to wash a car with Windex. Why, therefore, would I use it on my games?
