How to clean your Laptop

Hey, you guys!

Ever since I bought my own MacBook Air last year, I am a little extra-cautious about everything related to it. And when it comes to cleaning it, I did my complete research even before touching my baby with a cloth (paranoid, much?), which I’ll be sharing with you right now.

Here is a list of Do’s and Don’t’s for cleaning your MacBook/Laptop in the easiest and proper way:

  1. Ensure that you use a micro fibre cloth or a lint-free cloth to clean your laptop, especially the screen, as it will neither scratch it nor leave any debris over it.
  2. Unplug and switch off your laptop and don’t just put it on sleep mode. This is important, otherwise, you can permanently damage your gadget. 
  3. Don’t use a paper towel, paper, toilet paper, or even an old cloth to clean your device. 
  4. Gently wipe the screen in circular motion, as this will be enough to lift off any loose dust particles. 
  5. Never scrub your screen as it can damage the pixels. 
  6. You can clean the frame/body of your laptop with any mild cleaning detergent diluted with water or you can simply use a damp cloth, just ensure you don’t reach any closer to the screen while doing this. 
  7. Never directly wet your device as this can damage it. Always damp the cloth first and then clean your laptop. 
  8. Don’t use any regular detergent for the screen, use only LCD Screen solutions, if required. 
  9. You can use a soft bristle toothbrush to get the insides of the keyboard. Don’t use any liquid here. 
  10. Avoid touching your laptop screen while pointing out, as this can leave fingerprint marks all over your screen which are generally very annoying to remove.

Voila! I hope these points help you and you have a clean gadget!
