    Hi there OP, great job, if you see this late thread revival - could you tell me whether you had running water (however gentle) involved at any stage?
    I'm seeking tips on safe, dryer methods to do this task but you may have clingfilmed electrics etc..
    any tips (without watering cans or gently hosing down) appreciated, thanks!
