Harsh Cleaning Chemicals Can Damage Custom Aluminum Cases

Stay away from using harsh, abrasive cleaning chemicals to clean your custom case. Unfortunately, these types of cleaning chemicals can cause significant and noticeable damage to your custom case. You’ll want to opt for a gentle cleaning solution of warm water and a small dab of soap on a microfiber cloth instead. The soap and water is mild enough to lightly clean the surface of your case. This will avoid nicks and noticeable scratches on the shell of your case.

Use a Damp, Soapy Microfiber Cloth in Light Circular Motions

After dampening a microfiber cloth in warm, soapy water you’ll want to use circular motions to lightly cleanse your case. Move slowly while you work. This will ensure that you do not scratch the surface. Be sure to focus on the entire surface of the case rather than simply where you see any dirt or dried on substances. This will give your aluminum case a streamlined, evenly cleansed appearance.

Dry with a Clean Microfiber Cloth

After you’ve finished cleansing your aluminum case with a damp, soapy microfiber cloth you’ll want to swiftly move over the surface shell of your case with a dry microfiber cloth. Make sure that your dry microfiber cloth is clean before you start. Rub the dry cloth in swift, circular motions until any wet surface patches disappear. It’s important to wipe off any wet surfaces. You won’t want your aluminum case to dry with wet spots, because this can cause an uneven finish. After you’ve fully dried your custom aluminum case, you’re ready to pack it with your equipment and head out the door.
