whitequarkha, I found the best way to clean all the intricate folds and pockets in my glasses' frame from grease12:05
DocScrutinizer05take care, depending on the lenses' finish, you might ruin them14:48
DocScrutinizer05I've seen more than one monitor (CRT) being ruined by a careless cleaning with usual agressive household detergent which took off the antiglare finish14:49
DocScrutinizer05those ultra-thin metal coatings are really delicate and sensitive to acids14:50
DocScrutinizer05all sorts of optical glass (lenses, glasses...) have very similar coatings usually14:50
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: I took my chances and the coating is 100% fine14:50
whitequarkhowever that shit (dimethoxymethane) has an amazing capacity of dehydrating skin. one really needs to work with it in gloves14:51
whitequarkI touched it for about 2 seconds max and it really feels horrible14:51
DocScrutinizer05probably flux-off is particularly "non-activated" ;-)14:52
whitequarkyeah, I guess it is specifically formulated to not attack polymers, such as plastic connector parts14:52
DocScrutinizer05also non-corrosive to metals, I guess14:52
whitequarkyeah, it's not corrosive in general, it's just an organic solvent14:53
whitequarkrather volatile14:53
DocScrutinizer05anyway, outside is a weather I often miss in midsummer, so I'm afk14:53
