How To Clean Your PS5 Controller….and Keep It Clean!

When I did my PS5 unboxing video; which I still believe was the first in Africa, I talked about my reservations about the white controller.

I had no particular issues with the white console, but the controller would be a problem. Because it’s always in your hands, it’s bound to pick up dirt the more you use it; it doesn’t matter how clean you think you are!

It’s important to apply a little pressure as you wipe down and the pads will pick up all the dirt from the controller.

However, you can also use a damp cloth to simply wipe the dirt. The alcohol pads are safer because the alcohol will evaporate immediately. But if you can squeeze out all the water on a piece of cloth, you can easily wipe off dirt from the controller as shown in the video.
