    For basic dust, a California Duster works great for bins and cups and backend,its a red treated mop you get at auto parts stores.

      We are in the process of cleaning our machines.
      First thing I do is lube the crap out of them,
      then I pull all respot cell's cleaning them with
      denatured alcohol, then we clean the table casting
      with denatured alcohol. Put all the cell's back
      readjust the linkages and make sure all is good,
      20 tables and 200 cells down, 10 tables and 100
      cells to go YE HA [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

          For the gunky stuff, we use Gumout carb & choke cleaner... usually though, a wipedown with Castrol Super-Clean degreaser works good to get pretty much of the dirt off anything. For general light cleaning, I get 5-gal cans of isopropanol (99% isopropyl alcohol).

              "A clean machine is a happy machine".
              Heard that somewhere.
              For fast evaporating solvent degreasing I discovered a product by ZEP called I.D. RED. It's similar to the original Brakleen solvent, when it used to eveaporate really fast. It comes in 5's, gallons, and aerosol, which is great for de-gunking those light ball sensors annually. Only problem with I.D. RED is that it is flammable.
              For water-based cleaning (foods, tobacco staining, etc)ZEP also has a product called FORMULA 50, which is very strong and high in Butyl (25%), which tends to be harsh on skin. This can be watered down as far as you need, 30:1 being almost tame enough for glass. Full strength it will strip the paint off your parts.
              Then there's always CHLORINITE!!!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]

                Brakleen and Chlorinite 008 are functionally the same thing... Methylene Chloride. Cleans good, is nonflammable, evaporates quickly, and cuts through almost anything. It's also a known cancer-causing agent, and a mutagen. Not stuff you want to work around or breathe the fumes of for too long... In fact, OSHA has a PILE of very strict regulations concerning it's use. Here's the link if you want to read about it, here's the link: Methylene Chloride

                I love the stuff for cleaning, but I've been trying to phase it out as much as possible... between the health risks, and the possible risk of fines and lawsuits for mishandling it, or allowing an employee to use it improperly.

                  Get yourself a 'Dry Ice Blaster'. Its like a sand blaster but uses dry ice pellets that evaporate into thin air [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]
