Mouse doody

I use dishwashing liquid (Dawn; cuts through grease... and urine!) and a
medium stiff toothbrush to scrub away everything. Rinse well, and then
use compressed air to dry the boards. I use isopropanol alcohol to clean
any flux residue. I have been using this method for 20+ years with no
troubles to date. If you want to make things *sparkle*, try some Tarn-x
with that toothbrush after the washings. Rinse well and grab sunglasses!

For a few before and after pics of this method, see my digital group page:


P.S. My wife would unload her Mac-11 on my arse if I were to even think
of putting something with mouse crap on it in her dishwasher!
