TIL in theory how to clean motherboards in the dishwasher.

I have a 386sx motherboard that only works intermittently and is a candidate for a deep cleaning.

And no it’s not crazy. A dishwasher is just using water and soap and isn’t exerting mechanical force on the board. youtu.be/YyXgOn7yRZU


@thomasfuchs My computer dealer back then cleaned a lot of parts this way. Even tape drives as a last resort. :-D
