Now a days, people rely on electronics such as laptops, USB accessories, phones and more as part of their daily routines. Ultimately, keeping you electronics clean not only makes them work better, is more hygienic, and will look better to your guests. Below are some useful tips for keeping your electronic devices clean.
Before you proceed, you should check your device owners manuals for any special warnings and/or cleaning instructions.
Screens and Lenses: Most screens can be cleaned by dampening a lint free cloth with some distilled water. Rub the damp cloth over the screen from side to side. Be sure not to put a lot of moisture on the edges of the screen. Use a dry cloth to gently wipe those areas. You can also a 50/50 mixture of alcohol and water to clean and disinfect your device, but be aware that some phones such as iPhone have a special self cleaning coating that will get damaged. Camera lenses may also become damaged by alcohol. Be sure to check your owners manual/documentation.
Keyboards, Mice, controllers, etc: Wipe your accessories down with a clean lint free cloth, dampened with a 50/50 mix of alcohol and water. If you notice debris in the crevices of your devices, such as under the keys of your keyboard, a can of compressed air can be helpful to blow out the particles. Read the compressed air instructions before use.
Vents: Many devices, such as game consoles, computers, and even power transformers have vents for heat. When those vents become clogged by dust, they can cause the device to work less efficiently. Compressed air can be useful for clearing the vents of your devices. You can also use computer or camera duster pens which have anti-static bristles design to loosen up dust in tight areas.
