Before cleaning computer accessories and screens, power down your device and unplug the keyboard and mouse. Use these steps to clean your keyboard.
- Clear any loose crumbs and dust from the keyboard by gently shaking it upside-down over a trash can.
- Spray compressed air between the keys to clear the remaining debris.
- Clean the keyboard with a disinfectant wipe, paying extra attention to often-used keys such as the space bar and Enter key.
- You may want to squeeze out extra liquid from the wipe before cleaning to avoid dripping moisture into the openings, which can damage the keyboard.
Follow similar instructions for cleaning your computer mouse.
- Unplug the mouse and remove batteries if needed, then clean all sides and the scroll with a disinfectant wipe.
- For laptops, swipe the disinfectant wipe across the touchpad, taking care not to get excess moisture into the openings.
To clean your computer screen, avoid using paper towels, cleaning rags, glass cleaners, and other harsh chemicals, as these can damage the LCD screen.
- Wipe the display with a microfiber cloth dampened with a diluted solution of mild dish soap and warm water.
- Rinse the cloth with clean water, squeeze out excess moisture, then wipe again to remove any soapy residue.
Disinfectant wipes also work well for cleaning your home or office desk phone.
- Unplug the device and wipe down all surfaces, including the ear and mouthpieces, cords, and buttons.
- To help keep your phone germ-free, make sure your hands are clean before using it.
- Aim to clean your office phone daily and immediately after someone else has used your phone.
