In today's disgustingly dirty edition of Speak Up on Kotaku, commenter Dracosummoner wonders what everyone does to keep their controllers and portable game devices from cultivating new forms of bacterial life.

I was wondering, Kotaku, do you guys have any special tips or tricks for keeping your controllers and handhelds clean? I typically use a small, flat paintbrush without any water or chemicals, and I just rub or lightly scratch off the dust and buildup. What ideas have you all come across?

About Speak Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have a forum on Kotaku called Speak Up. That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak Up posts we can find and highlight it here.
