The components inside are not delicate flowers

Better gear often uses components that satisfy US "Mil Specs" or components of an equivalent quality level . MIL_STD-883 is the basic basic the outline of which is nicely summarized in the link below. The tests include such horrors as "Baking" "Neutron radiation" Moisture resistance" "Salt atmosphere" etc - you see where I'm going with this.

I don't think the airborne vapor of a little Johnson's "Pledge Multi Surface" non aqueous cleaner spray will damage anything, it's just a few % ethyl alcohol with a trace of a mild surfactant (something used in cosmetics) with a little fragrance. It dries instantly and I use it in all my gear being reasonably careful not to spray any vent opening directly- spritz it on a microfiber rag and wipe is all. It does a nice job and leaves ZERO reside- you can clean your flatscreens with it and see for yourself.
