    Default Quick wire cleaning tip

    I was doing some wiring stuff on my truck and couldn't see the wire colors because of the filth covering them. Turns out baby wipes work pretty good at cleaning wires. Carb cleaner was evaporating before I could get the wires clean. The wipes are much nicer to work with too.

    WD40 is excellent for cleaning wiring.
    And all kinds of other parts too but especially on rubbers and plastics.

    And who doesn't have a can sitting around?

    Hand cleaner without pumice works well for cleaning wiring too.
