Yeah it sure is. When mine were dipped I used just dish soap and it worked fine. You can also use alcohol wipes from Publix.

fwiw, I use the aerosol type and I don't let it sit on it very long at all, as soon as I spray it on I start wiping it off with the wet sponge and dry right after with a microfiber cloth.
