What cleaning fluid does the largest model railway exhibition in the world (Miniatur Wunderland) use ?

Answer :-  NONE !

They use only track rubbers & vacuum cleaners on their 12 kilometers of track.

Here's what they say :-

" The reason why we dry-clean is quite simple.
Any fluid leaves some residue on the tracks and the chance to completely dry the track is minimal.
Damp track however, is a magnet for dirt and dust which in turn is picked up by the engines and that results in higher maintenance of rolling stock.
We tried it and had to state that some wagons picked up that much dirt that the wheels didn't turn anymore.
Some engines just barely were able to pick up current due to dirty wheel boxes. "
