my remoote tv has been very dirty, so i was thinking about cleaning it with only soap. I know that theres alcohol in soap but i still just wanted to know does it harm my remote or not.

They sell electronic wipes for pretty cheap, also can just use a standard Clorox wipe or something, just wring out most of the moisture from it first.
I would not use soap on any electronics unless you take it all apart and just clean the plastic shell separately.
