I noticed there are very small creases between the plastic around the frame and the aluminum parts. It's quite easy to see a small layer of build up forms within. Does anyone have an idea to clean this properly, safely etc...?

Thanks

I've also noticed this, and I can't really say that I've found a solution to it. I usually just clean it with a wet cloth (I won't expose it to running water since I tend to have some bad luck with these kind of stuff ) and then use a needle to pick the most annoying tiny stuff that'll get stuck in the "cracks".

You know what works really good and nobody thinks about it? A simple sheet of paper.
But hey, I wash it like twice a day and that's the best way to clean it.
I even used a brush (like the one you use to clean your nails) to clean the "cracks".

Twice a day, and your Ultra still lives? Talk about good karma [emoji5] I don't have that kind of luck, so I keep mine away from running water. I'll try and use a brush next time!

Oh come on, I haven't bought an IP57/58 certified device to never put it underwater...
I brought it to the pool for like 45 minutes of pics and videos of my kids and it behaved like the champion that it is...

I can guarantee that my Ultra WILL get damaged if I submerge it in water. It will happen.
