Cleaning the Classic Consoles: Super Nintendo, Playstation One, Atari 2600 and Mega Drive

Have the classic consoles always installed and ready to use is cool. But there is one drawback: dust.

My first time consoles is exposed and often have to vacuum them. It even motivated me to do a closed cabinet for second team. But the first team is still in the rack my room open and suffers a lot from the dust.

Even with the regular cleaning, time or another need to do a better cleaning, to remove the dirt and dust that stuck hides in various cracks and does not come out easily.

After properly cleaned the consoles look so nice that I decided to take some photos and share them, because unfortunately they don't stop so long. Let's check it out?

The first to go through the process was the Super Nintendo. The console has the carcass in light grey and with a somewhat rough surface, that tends to grime. I think there was more than dirt 20 years in it, because I have the console since 1993 and I've never done a cleanse so deep in it. It was quite pale after cleaning.

It is worth noting that the different plastic parts are with different levels of yellow time, What happens with almost every Super Nintendo. There are formulas that combine hydrogen peroxide, Vanish and sunlight (or ultraviolet) to make it, but I have no intention of doing this for a while.

Then it was the turn of the Playstation One. He is also pale, smoother than the Super Nintendo, but also builds up a lot of dirt in the cracks. The rubber feet were also really bad.

I don't know who the Levi who wrote the name in pen on the bottom label. It came from the store where I bought it new. Can be the name of the guy who happened to him hidden by the friendship bridge, will know…

The Playstation One It has also been well white and beautiful.

Next in line was the Atari 2600. Its rough surface also tends to grime, Despite the dirt appear less in black plastic. Furthermore, the surface with the grooves squares is also tricky to clean. But with a little care and patience he was also clean.

Por fim, now is the time of the Mega Drive. He ends up soiling more than others by staying on top of the rack, While the others are in niche. The ventilation slots in the left corner are the most complicated to clean, along with the spaces of the buttons on/off and volume. But in the end he was also clean.

This heavy cleaning was made in September 2017. From there to here were only light dressings. But soon a new heavy cleaning is required.

I've thought about doing covers for classic consoles, to avoid the mess both, but I haven't put the idea into practice.

And you, How to clean your consoles? It, mainly, How to keep clean? Tell us in the comments.
