Cleaning a laptop is easy to do, but you need to be careful about which products you use so you don't damage your laptop screen or keys. This tutorial will show you exactly what you need to do to make your laptop clean and germ free too!
Things You'll Need
- 1 part distilled water
- 1 part distilled white vinegar
- Small spray bottle
- Microfiber cloth
- Cotton swabs
Step 1: Make the cleaning solution.
Mix one part distilled water with one part distilled white vinegar in a small spray bottle.
Step 2: Spray a microfiber cloth with cleaning solution.
Step 3: Clean the laptop shell.
Wipe your laptop shell clean using the microfiber cloth with small amount of cleaning solution.
Step 4: Gently clean your laptop's LCD screen.
Do not apply pressure when cleaning your laptop's LCD screen, or you can damage the pixels in the screen.
Never use alcohol or any other chemical based cleaning solution to clean your computer's LCD screen. It can damage the screen.
Step 5: Clean the edge of your screen and the laptop base.
Spray your microfiber cloth lightly with your cleaning solution and clean the edge of your screen, the laptop base and your mouse track pad.
Step 6: Clean your laptop's keys.
Remove the lid from your cleaning solution and dip a cotton swab in the solution. Gently tap the cotton swab on the side of the container to remove any excess cleaning solution. Take the damp cotton swab and gently clean in between and around the computer's keys.
It's a good idea to clean your laptop every couple of weeks to keep keys from sticking and protect your laptop's screen.
