Isopropyl Alcohol and Cleaning Electronics (Rubbing Alcohol)
If I have something that is really sticky and dirty, is it okay to submerge the electronic into isopropyl alcohol? Will this damage the electronic in any way?

This would be really important if the stuff was $100 /L.rchong wrote: ↑Sep 6th, 2007 2:40 pmSorry to threadjack, but I have a question related to isopropyl alcohol.
Under the Chemistry section, it says isopropanol can be separated by adding a salt.
I'm wondering if I can buy a 50/50 isopropyl alcohol and water solution at the dollar store and add salt to separate the two.

Thats a bad idea, LCD manufacturers specifically recommend against using alcohol cleaners.TurboVolvo wrote: ↑Sep 6th, 2007 8:59 amTry not to submerge any electronics and most certainly do not let it soak.
Also be careful what you are cleaning with that stuff as it can cause some fading and discoloration on some plastics.
Best to use an old spray bottle to mist the board and then a clean toothbrush (not and old/used one!)to rub off the dirt.
I also use the alcohol and water mix to clean my LCD monitor and TV with a nice microfiber cloth. Works like a charm.

I agree. My friend got isopropyl Alcohol inside his phone's LCD and now his LCD is dim and has water trapped inbetween the crystlals. It has Not gone away because lcds do not get warm, theyre not incandescent.

Costco sells it here on the shelves for something like 10 dollars for 4x500mL bottles.
