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 Screen
Computer screens are sturdier than delicate keyboards and touch-sensitive smartphone screens, but they still require careful cleaning. Wipe the screen with a lint-free or microfiber cloth to remove any dust or dirt, then carefully swipe an alcohol wipe over the surface to de-germ. Finish with a clean micro-fiber cloth to remove any moisture or smears.
If your computer’s in a high-traffic area of the house—or if your kids use it often and tend to touch the screen—aim to clean it once a week.
