Hey, so I had to drill a hole onto my drywall wall today and unfortunately some of the white and orange dust fell onto the power cord I use for my setup.
I dusted it thoroughly, but I'm a bit worried that it might've damaged it since I'm not sure if this dust is corrosive or conductive.
What do you think?

It is not a problem.

Wipe it off.

Drywall dust is neither corrosive nor conductive. Why not wipe the cord off?
I already did. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't corrosive to make sure the cord didn't get damaged.
I thought drywall could have something similar to lime that could eat through metal.
Seems I was wrong, thankfully. Thanks for clarifying.
