Meguiars interior quick detailer spray. Love it for plastics and rubber. Feels great and cleans very well.

Never thought of that! I use it on the rubber textured surface on the top portion of my dash for years with no ill effects. Just keep it out of the electronics. Great idea.

water? Meguiars? these aren't Nikon cameras, Canon deserves better. you folks need to get with the program.

the only thing that cleans my Canon bodies is holy water. it does a spiritual cleaning, in addition to the more obvious physical cleansing.

I shoot with 1dmk4 - so paint over a magnesium body (not plastic)
When mine get dusty I blow them off with compressed air, if they have sticky stuff (normally gaffa tape residue or champagne residue) I wipe it off with Metholated spirits on a tissue

ArmorAll Natural Finish Detailer sparingly applied with a Q-tip to the rubber parts. Wipe down with a damp cloth. Finish with a dry cloth.

If it's dust, just a dry microfiber cloth. If it's muddy, damp microfiber cloth. And if it's something stickier (like champagne), very small amount of dish washing liquid on a damp cloth.

I use a DRY shaving badger brush for the body (outside only) after use. super soft bristles don't damage the camera. And of course i don't use it anywhere near the glass. For lenses i use a blower then pec pads with eclipse drops.

Does that mean I could damage my bodies by using thrice distilled fairy breath applied with butterfly wings?

Mind you, I find that if I keep them safely in their unicorn hide cases deep in an underground climate controlled room and only take them out once a year to look at them, they don't really get dirty so it's not a problem.

Same here. Great for those noseprints on the LCD screen. Just blow or brush off the grit first - treat the body like a good pair of glasses.

Be sure to rinse after the Holy Water as it is saline...not pure H2O.
