Cleaning / Circuit board porn

Well, last weekend during a couple of not particularly pleasant night shoots on a low budget feature, this happened after an SFX shot:

Anyway, I got the worst off straight away and all my gear continued to work without any problems for the rest of the shoot.

The exterior was easy enough to clean with spray on isopropyl alcohol, but the stuff that could get into pots/switches cause damage would be inside

The bag and harness were soaked in warm water with a bit of washing powder in, they’re currently drying in the bath:
