Nothing should happen to the motherboard as long as it doesn't have any current. As long as he dries it completely before hooking it back up, it will still work.

no, no it wont.

The minerals from water damage electronics.

I'm just sayin' because i have had numerous electronics go in the washer and survive. A bluetooth headset, a flash drive, a ps2 memory card...even a cellphone....but the battery didnt have any charge so it had no current...all i did after they were discovered was dry them very well.....

All of those are contained devices, so the damage will be lessened, this is an exposed MOBO, with a brush leaving bits of it self and scraping it, the soap that will be almost impossible to get rid of and tap water which has fluoride and other damaging minerals.

before turning them back on or using them that is

He's brushing it ..... that will most definitely pull off some of the solder !

Hopefully not solder, but maybe some PCB tracks if he is unlucky.

The electronic components should mostly be fine after a wash like that; Capacitors don't mind, neither does the small SM resistors and single transistors. The IC's and chips may be different but would only be damaged because of static electricity built up from the brush or similar.

The minerals from the soapy water would be, in some degree, stuck to the PCB though it won't hurt anything if the copper tracks are coated (98% of modern PCB's are). I regularly clean amplifier boards in soapy water with no issues.

For the record, I have been working with all kinds of electronics for many years (also professionally.)

thank you

I forgot to mention you have to be gentle with the brush too...lol...it all depends on how rough he is brushing it.....but i think the main concern here is that he is getting it wet.....no?
