Best way to clean your SNES system?

Hey there, So I've had the same SNES system for a good 20 years now and the thought occurred I've never actually cleaned inside or out. It's still the same shade of gray but just a lot of dust gather, if the outer casing had started to turn yellow it would have been tossed awhile ago. Anyways, i was wondering what the best method of cleaning it should be and if anyone would advise against opening it up and also cleaning the inside? I was thinking to clean the outside I would soak cue-tips in 99% rubbing alcohol and gentry wipe away any dust,any thoughts? And if i were to open the system would you advise against using the same cleaning method on that to? All help is appreciated.

For the outside shell, ti is pretty resilient and even when yellowing is restorable. Just remove the shell and soak it in bleach or alcohol, then give it a good hard scrubbing. as for the insides, the only part that needs cleaning are the pin connectors in both the cartridges and where the game inserts. As for how to clean those, watch my video:

steveg1988 is an unknown quantity at this point

I use screen cleaning anti-static wipes on my consoles, it removes most grime, without damaging anything and it drys on its own, leaving little to no residue, prevents you from getting spray in anyplace where it doesn't belong. I also have used it to clean cartridge contacts on a test cartridge (mortal Kombat III, my least favorite cart i have) and it did not seem to damage it.

I have a SNS-101 so i cannot speak for how well it will clean up tobacco/yellowing stains as mine is fairly clean to start with only a few knicks to the case, but it does seem to do the trick for hand grime on controllers and the cartridges themselves. Staples has a combo pack of compressed gas duster with the screen wipes for about 12 dollars, and i think it is a good value, look on the staples website for Dust Destroyer Monitor Wipes and Air Duster.
