Think about it: You probably touch your tablet, computer keyboard, and remote control more regularly than any other items in the house. And—brace yourself—did you know your smartphone harbors 18 times more germs than a toilet handle? Eek! Use these handy guidelines to clean your electronics safely.
How to Clean Your Computer Mouse
Unplug your mouse and remove any batteries. Wipe the computer mouse down with a micro-fiber or lint-free cloth on all sides. Now do the same with an alcohol wipe or disinfecting wipe. If any moisture remains, swipe a clean micro-fiber cloth back over the top and bottom of the mouse before plugging it back in. To banish germs between cleanings, unplug the mouse and run a disinfecting wipe over the top, holding your hand (with the wipe between it and the mouse) as if you were using the device to be sure you touch each spot your fingers typically touch.
