Cleaning NES Cartridges

Just a quick tip for those of you planning to get into the world of NES games get down to your local builders yard and buy a bottle of Ethanol and some cotton buds. This stuff basically cleans metal contacts on carts then evaporates within a few minutes. Meaning there’s no risk of moisture affecting the contacts. Great stuff and I’ve used it several times.

Isoprypyl does the trick better!

Will see if I can get my hands on some. So far I've been quite lucky as a few dabs of ethanol have solved all problems but theres bound to be one or two that wont work.
