Carbon Cleaning

Was perusing a catalog yesterday with a ton of cleaners, (bicycle) and only one was mentioned as being carbon safe/friendly.

Anyone ever hear of problems of using a typical cleaner (non-degreaser) on carbon?

I've never had the need to clean my headset spacers.

Wipe down after most rides with warm water/damp rag, occasionally wash with dish soap and water followed by Nu finish wax. Never saw the need for any special carbon cleaner if it's been sealed with a clear coat.

Have you had any issues with your carbon spacers? I had a friend with a problem keeping his headset tight. Turns out the carbon spacers weren't cut right. That's one reason I use the ridiculously priced CK spacers. Perfectly faced every time. Plus the cool colors.

No problems with mine. Titec and Token, mostly.
