How to clean your computer

Electrical equipment generates static, which means your computer is prone to attracting dust. Cleaning your computer as part of your weekly cleaning routine can help keep it running smoothly.

The first step when cleaning is always to consult your owner's manual.

The techniques mentioned here are very gentle and can probably be used safely on any machine, but only your manual can explain whether your particular machine may need special care.
The Keyboard
Use the extension tube on a can of compressed air, spray air in short bursts between the keys; avoid long bursts, which may produce condensation. Turn the keyboard over and gently shake it to loosen any lingering dust, and spray again with compressed air if necessary.
Wipe the keys and keyboard casing with a cloth dampened with the dishwashing solution.
If you have spilled something on your keyboard, try to get off as much of the liquid as possible. Most desktop keyboards have removable keys (consult your manual for instructions). Use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to gently remove the spill from underneath and around the keys. Use distilled water; hard water may leave behind a thin deposit of minerals.
The Mouse
First, flip the mouse over and remove the disk that holds the ball; you may need to push gently on the disk or use a coin to twist it and turn to snap it out.
Remove the ball, and rub it with a detergent-dampened cloth to remove any dust. With a cotton swab barely dampened with water, gently wipe the rollers inside the mouse; replace the ball, and close it.
The Monitor
Turn off the monitor. If the screen is dark, it will be easier to see the areas that are dirty or oily. Use a dry, soft cloth and very gently wipe the screen. Always need soft, clean, lint-free cloths. A great choice would be the microfiber type of cloth used to clean eyeglasses.
If necessary, dampen the cloth with distilled water or with an equal ratio of distilled water to white vinegar. The plastic edge that surrounds the screen can be cleaned with any multipurpose cleaner but take care to avoid contact with the screen itself.
The Cords
Beginning at one end, wrap a cloth dampened with dishwashing solution around a cord and slide it to the other end. Give the cords a few minutes to dry completely before reconnecting them to various components.
DOs & DON’Ts
Always be sure to turn off your computer before you clean it.
Never spray anything directly onto any part of the computer as it can leak into the housing.
A gentle duster, such as one made of lamb's wool, works very well.
Never use a vacuum cleaner on electronics, as it generates static, which can damage components.


Pushing too hard directly on the LCD screen can often cause pixels to burn out.
Avoid cleaning products that contain ammonia, ethyl alcohol, acetone, toluene, ethyl acid, or methyl chloride. These chemicals can react with the materials that the LCD screen is made of which could yellow the screen or cause other kinds of damage.
