Re: How do I clean a Xenon HID Bulb

You must use an alcohol based cleaner or wipes. I use Isoproponol available from the likes of Maplins and good electronic suppliers. Spray it on let it sit to dry - then spray again and before it dries wipe with a dry tissue - wipe only once with each tissue. Don't be tempted to use meths as it leaves a residue although surgical spirits should be OK.

At a real push you can use contact lens cleaner.
