    Watch bracelet cleaning

    How do you guys clean the bracelet and case back of your watch? If I buy a preowned watch can I use regular anti bacterial wipes for the bracelet and case back of say a Rolex? The chemical in anti bacterial wipes is safe for kids skin so I'd imagine it will be fine fine if I use it on the bracelet but I figure I'll check with the experts here just in case it's actually not fine. Thanks all.

    Soft Toothbrush + Palmolive liquid detergent (the green one) + rinse under bathroom sink.

    Works beautifully.

    I have used the screen/lens cleaner wipes from Staples. They are soft yet durable, can be worked into the tight spots, leave the lens & bracelet clean & shiny and do not require rinsing.

    For stainless, Windex. I set the watch on a towel and give it a good soak with Windex. I either avoid the head or remove the bracelet. Amazing what comes out of a bracelet you thought was clean.

    Maybe you should buy an ultrasonic cleaner for the bracelets (if you have many of them).

    I hold the watch under a running tap to get it wet, then put a few drops of dish detergent in my hand, lather it up, wash the watch with my hands, and make sure to give it a good rinse when I'm done.

    Take the bracelet off and wash it with hot water and dish washing detergent (the one for hand washing the dishes). It's primary function is grease removal which will be the main problem on bracelets (combined with dead skin cells and dust from clothes). Works great and for the clasp i use just some ordinary brush, because just the water doesn't remove the dirt straight away.
    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.

    This. It is a soap to wash tablewares. Works wonders. I
    f you feel the metal has lost it's shine, first sink it into WD-40, let it rest there 1-2 hours and then wash it with this soap.
