Recommendations for Cleaning/Disinfecting Radio Equipment

Motorola Solutions have released the below technical information for customers with regards to cleaning and disinfecting their radio equipment. 

General Cleaning
• Apply 0.5% detergent-water solution with a cloth, then use a stiff, non-metallic, short-bristled brush to work all loose dirt away from the device. Use a soft, absorbent, lintless cloth or tissue to remove the solution and dry the device.
• Make sure that no solution remains entrapped near any connectors, cracks or crevices.

Disinfecting 
• Devices may be disinfected by wiping them down with over-the-counter isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) with at least 70% alcohol concentration.
• When cleaning with isopropyl alcohol, the alcohol should never be applied directly to the device. It should be applied to a cloth, which is then used to wipe down the device.
• The effects of certain chemicals and their vapors can have detrimental effects on plastics and the metal platings.
