Nintendo customer support recently asked users to avoid using alcohol to clean Joy-Cons, as this could cause the plastic to "fade or deform." Unfortunately, Nintendo suggested using a "soft dry cloth"--I'm sorry to say that this definitely won't disinfect your console. This isn't the first time Joy-Cons have had issues due to build quality.

6. It’s not all snikt-snikt with X-23Having needles shoved into her arms and conditioned to fight on command weren’t the only highlights of X-23’s childhood in the Facility.
