    I just wipe mixer over wiv a washing up pad (delicately off course)

    Crossfader though or channels + that, I use COTTONBUDS man, find it helps a lot.

    But, then agin I spose It depends on how shagged ya mixer is?

    :)

    Cheers mate, the problem is one of the channels, when i play it into my pc through line in it doesnt pick up my 2nd channel (3 channel mixer)? I am thinking of buying a air compressor cleaning kit or what ever its called but wanna see if theres any techniques other members have! such as cotton buds ;) lol

    you can get cans of compressed air for a tenner from maplins. a combination of that and 'switch cleaner' will give you your best chance :)
