Did you know? The ISS is Like a Floating Cleanroom
If dust, bacteria, or particles enter that could damage irreplaceable components (like the astronauts!). In the case of labs on earth, something inside could escape. Cleanrooms prevent particles from entering and leaving a facility. This is the same reason the International Space Station has an airlock (see it here).
Alcohol provides consistent results as a cleaning solvent. The wipe material should withstand harsh environments, offer consistent performance, and be compatible with encountered acids and bases. TekniPure is a popular brand.
