Default Sanitizing S6 / Covid19

Hello guys,


Do you have any advices to clean up/sanitize our Control Surfaces, especially our S6 ?
We're looking for best ways to fight the spreading of the virus Covid19, and we think that our control surfaces are pretty affected by those questions.

Do you recommend any products to sanitize properly the Avid control surfaces (bleach, alcool solutions, etc.) ?

Thanks !

What about a UV sanitizing light?

Even before covid-19, I was the guy spraying 90% rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and wiping down everything. I do that every morning on an S3, and have done it a few times on an S6. Works well on control surfaces, keyboards, mouse, trackballs, laptops, telephones, door knobs...

Yep, I'm a big fan of 90% Alcohol because it completely evaporates and dries quickly.

The bigger problem is nobody could possibly remember everything they touched! So, as annoying as they might be, I'd recommend latex gloves after you've cleaned the surface. That way NOBODY IS ACTUALLY TOUCHING THE SURFACE.

Clean in the morning. Clean at night. Wear gloves. You're totally covered that way.

I believe there is a knowledge base article or post from Eddie or Jeff about how you should clean an S6 and there are definitely some things they explicitly said not to use. I can't recall details though, and it does not relate to sanitizing re: covid-19 but probably worth seeking out to make sure you don't ruin the board.
