  3. Best way to clean between the hinge?
4 years ago#1
My 3DS is in need of some cleaning. I can clean the rest of the system no problem, but the issue comes in when I try to clean in between the two screens.

So I was wondering, what is the best way to clean in between the hinge of the 3DS? Not the touch screen, but the actual area where you close your 3DS. It is very hard to reach all the dirt in there, and is pretty filthy.

If you feel like blasting your 3DS into a wall, sure.

Got this from the Nintendo Support part of the official website, and it works pretty well:

A clean, soft tooth brush. Might be easier to clean if you slightly dampen it. There was a 2-for-1 deal on toothbrushes at a store where I live a week back, got my regular (medium-to-hard) and a soft tooth brush for cleaning the DS, 3DS, home built electronics and the like.

If you use a Q-tip, use a hard kind - the softer ones will plush and leave cotton strings in your hinges.

What the hell are you talking about? The cans of air they sell at most office supply stores don't have that kind of power.
