Ok, let me clarify:
You want to use the highest % alcohol you can find. It will eventually evaporate, but you want to make sure it is completely dry before you try to power on your console.
You CAN use a cart to clean the console by using alcohol and inserting the cart in and out of the console, BUT It needs to be disconnected form the power AND, I would recommend hitting the power and reset buttons once each in case the console has stored a small charge before you begin the cleaning process.
I was going to write a whole "How to" type thing, but I don't have as much time as I used to.
