How do I prevent debit/credit card microchips from rusting?


How do you keep the chips on credit and debit cards from oxidizing (e.g. rusting)?

The answer is that the chip generally does not rust. However, if you’re having issues with the chip you can clean it with a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a q-tip The alcohol will remove debris and will evaporate not causing any damage to the card or the chip.
