How to Clean and Disinfect your Electronics.

Our electronics are the things we keep nearest and dearest to ourselves, we can’t live without our cellphone in our pocket, or a computer to work. Consequently, this makes them some of the dirtiest items that we own and that we don’t bother to clean. We’re all guilty of browsing on our phone while going to the bathroom, after all. Because of this, we found it necessary to give you a little guide on how to clean your electronics.

How to clean your laptop or computer screen.

To prevent a nasty shock. turn off the power, and unplug the device. If it’s a monitor, also unplug them from the PC. 

Gently wipe the monitor free of smears or dust using a microfiber cloth. If this doesn’t work, use a solution of diluted dish soap. You’ll only need a single drop of soap and the water should be warm. Dip a clean microfiber cloth into the disinfectant solution and thoroughly wring it out. This is especially important when you’re cleaning laptops, as you don’t want liquid to drip down through the keys. 

Gently wipe your display with the dampened cloth. Let sit for some time. Rinse all the disinfectant solution out of this cloth and wring it out again. Go back over your display to remove any residue. Once more, gently wipe your screen, this time using a dry microfiber cloth.

After that, dry it off with a cloth. Don’t plug anything back  in until the keyboard is completely dry!
