suggestions for cleaning

i just had the walls of an adjacent room filled with blown-in insulation while i was out of town. the insulation people did not cover the computers in an attached bathroom turned computer room -and- they did not cover the door jam well leading into the recording room: hence, everything has a layer of this insulation dust on it (its the really small microscopic particles of insulation residue - not regular dust).

basically everything has to get unplugged removed and cleaned (major pain in the assq). any comments on what cleaning materials to use? windex and a paper towel? thanks for input.

I would definitely wipe down first to keep airborn dust down. Once you start vacuuming it's going to get the air moving.

Windex and a lint free towel would be my first plan, then the vacuum.

Sorry to hear that, what a pain.

I once cleaned my automated fader panels on my board with windex and a paper towell and found out the hard way that windex contains ammonia and switch contacts really don't like ammonia at all. I'll never do that again.

Washing-up liquid lotion like you use for dishes is best for picking up particles. It is being used in professional applications.

Wring out the sponge or cloth so that it won´t seep and work with that.
