Re: How do I clean a Xenon HID Bulb

The alcohol wipes are 10-20% water content,to prevent burning to the human skin, but theyre not too bad
You can get a large bottle of pure alcohol from a chemist, in rural areas anyway.
Meths would be better than nothing ,its pure alcohol with a percentage of wood alcohol(poisonous) in it.
Dont use rubbing alcohol,the type used for sports injuries etc as there is a small amount of oil in it.

If your bulb is one of the shrouded anti glare types you will have to be very carefull as the shroud becomes very delicate once its "baked on" with the bulb heat.

General tune up
