No joke, my mother-in-law was trying to scrub off baked on bugs from her car and when a rag didn't do it, she used a kitchen scrub pad. Totally destroyed the paint.

Many years ago my younger sister had her 1965 Mustang painted bright red. About 2 weeks later we were expecting rain, and because the Mustang had a small water leak at the window, my older sister decided to "help" by putting plastic sheeting over the window and securing it to the body using masking tape.

I think you know the outcome. Not pretty.

me and my dad restored a beat up '65 when I was 15/16. It was rough, but it was great way to learn a lot about cars and spend time in the garage away from the females of the house.

When I went to college the car was not at all what a punk kid should be driving through backroads of NC, so i got a modest new two door. The Mustang sat outside for a year or two with my dad driving it from time to time to keep it running. Inline six, three speed mind you, lol.

my younger sister ran into it while it was parked in the driveway. Smashed the whole back quarter panel that happened to be half full of bondo. I cannot tell you how many hours I spent filling and sanding that damn thing.

sister got one of those "it's okay sweetie" wink and a nod and didn't have to lift a finger to make it right.

grrr.

So I got my Canon EOS M3 today and took off the lid. I wanted to clean the sensor so I huffed on it and then cleaned it with my t shirt? Will it be alright?

Was your T-shirt sweated into, or was it fresh out of the wash & dry?! Dry means it is more likely to leave lint on the sensor.

This is the most thorough way to clean my cameras I have found, it eliminates dust everywhere, including the focus screen, pentaprism, etc. It doesn't work for lenses though, they are still in rice bags since 3 weeks ago.

Poor 7D. The camera gets no respect from you guys.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Be sure to use distilled water to avoid mineral deposits, and only air dry, so as not to scratch delicate surfaces!

You do have to use Dawn soap though, because as we know from Canon advisories, there could be oily deposits on the sensor from the shutter assembly, and if it works to cut through oil on wildlife, it certainly will cut through lubrication oil on the sensor. Very important step! The point about distilled water is great, and make sure that the T-shirt used to dry and clean everything afterwards is 100% cotton, as rayon and polyester will not be beneficial to the AA filter and sensor coatings.

Perhaps I am taking this too far, but it is fun once in a while! :D

What you really need to use to clean a camera is "Best Universal Grit Grime and Effluent Remover"

As the advertising slogan goes: If Omo don't whiten it and Daz don't brighten it, BUGGER it.
