My MagSafe port on my mac is not the cleanest and I am wondering if there is a way to clean It. I have been having problems with connections lately and every answer I came up with was that I needed to clean the charging port. I want a Safe way to clean the MagSafe port. If you have a safe way let me know. Thanks
