Dip the cotton portion of the cotton-tipped applicator in isopropyl alcohol.
Rub the cotton portion of the cotton-tipped applicator along the pins of the connector. Slowly move the applicator back-and-forth from one side of the connector to the other. Do not leave any cotton residue on the connector.
All sides of the connector should also be rubbed with the cotton-tipped applicator.
Remove any lint left by the cotton-tipped applicator.
If grease and other dirt can be found on other areas of the cradle, use a lint-free cloth and alcohol to remove.
Allow at least 10 to 30 minutes (depending on ambient temperature and humidity) for the alcohol to air dry before applying power to cradle.
If the temperature is low and humidity is high, longer drying time is required. Warm temperature and low humidity requires less drying time.
After cleaning the cradle connectors with bleach-based chemicals, follow the Cleaning Cradle Connectors instructions to remove bleach from the connectors.
