that might work too but don't put water on it because water will leave little tiny particles on it like iron, sand, ect.

Yep electronic cleaner or contact cleaner in an aerosol spray can is what you should be looking for.

Yeah the LPS is what I use at work as well and it's perfect if you can find it at a local store.

If not, I know for sure that the source sells cans of electrical contact cleaner.

The Source By Circuit City : Search Results

Canadian Tire

they both have contact cleaner, but I do not know these products as good as the LPS. LPS is the best, I use it on my motherboards and video cards to keep them clean.
LPS NoFlash is a vaporous solvent cleaner. It's nonconductive and nonflammable, so it can be used while equipment is in operation to avoid costly downtime. NoFlash Electro Contact Cleaner penetrates and evaporates quickly, dislodging oil, grease, dirt and other materials from precision mechanical and delicate electrical/ electronic parts leaving no residue.

Where can I get LPS? Do I have to order it? And does it evaporate very fast? Sorry for all the questions, its just I dont want to mess up my computer since its still my first build and this has to last for a long time.

And how do I dispose of it? I cant flush it down the drain, it says so on the information sheet.
