Unless the board has obviously terrible things on it like rat piss and whatnot, I will just carefully wipe it down. I have washed hardware, but they were near unredeemable otherwise.

Here's a board I cleaned recently.

I could probably have had cleaned it with paper towels, but it would have been quite a long task and it wouldn't have looked as good as this after.
