Makeup brushes for Christmas


My wife gets me! I opened up one of the gifts from my wife and wadddya know, makeup brushes for cleaning my stereo gear! She had observed my OCD tendencies for years, carefully brushing off each little button with her old discarded brushes ( after I sterilized them of course) and decided to get me a set. I've seen posts about the compressed air, but there's something more intimate about the brushes for me, I swear my babies sound better after a gentle brushing/cleaning? Please tell me I'm not alone!

uh-oh……better keep that among this group of nuts or…...

I know right? I'm secure in my weirdness. 
I spray anti-static fluid on the tips of carbon free brushes (away from the electronic piece) and carefully brush the tips against the bottom and sides of my power amp.  And the transformer, also.

Do the full outside perimeter too.  Make sure the plug is not connected and allow a few minutes for drying time.

Use the liquid when applied to a clean cloth and treat rack, speaker cabinets, footers, cables, etc.  I bought my brushes in an electronics store, and have been using them for years.  
What kind of anti-static spray are you using?

They also sell wipes and an outstanding micro fiber cloth.
Their products are also on ebay.
A great staff will talk to you on the phone, even.
Been using that little trick for a number of years. I first started when I owned a pair  of Dynaudio speakers with soft dome tweeter and a beautiful finish. Grills were never used and I really hate how dust collects on my gear. Anti static wipes work well also.
I use a shaving cream brush to dust my turntable platter.
I use very fine and soft artist brushes. Great for getting around the small spaces and crevices of my tuner and tube amps.

I use compressed air especially when I start restoring vintage gear.

For intimate listeneing I dress my system up in La Perla.

i clean everything with sandpaper and paint thinner
especially my vinyl.
Sometimes in a hardware store you can find a small very soft natural bristle paint brush that works well except for a piano finish. Best to use a micro fiber cloth for that.

Did she give you some red lipstick for playing the Rolling Stones?
