    Just hose it off

    Actually, if you use the compressed air it works well...

    Or if you mean grit and grime, use a solvent that evaporates quickly. The stuff in the case is fine with liquids, as long as there is no power...

    I call it "No-Pants Wonderday," but it turns out the police just call it "Thursday." Go figure.

    There are specific electronics cleaners - try Radio Shack. Another great accessory are the reducers for your vacum. All kinds of cool brushes, wands etc for cleaning PCB's, keyboards, etc.
    ...hope this helps...

    if you're looking for a quick drying solvent, try acetone (nailpolish remover)... i dunno how this'll work with the chips (i'm a virologist, not a computer maker).

    I wouldn't use acetone on a PCB - it dissolves many epoxies (try cleaning a fiberglass helmet with it! ).

    Alcohol and cotton always works for me? It might for you too... and no, it doesn't wreck anything in the process and I've cleaned everything.
