Cleaning dirty electronics are enough to drive the sane mind out of control. Most individuals don’t know how to properly clean electronics so they simply avoid the task. Dust can actually destroy electronics and unclean screens are a sore sight for eyes. I am going to cover how to clean all your electronics with just a few items and a little elbow grease.

Supplies for Cleaning Dirty Electronics:

Grab a microfiber cloth, distilled water and isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol 99% is incredibly fast drying, a powerful solvent and should be your first choice to use. We use alcohol because it evaporates quickly unlike water. It is safe and effective to use for cleaning personal computers and electronic devices. Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol 91% would be suitable for most tasks too. Do not attempt to use glass cleaner, as it can be harmful to electronic screens and can destroy any coating.

Take Action Cleaning Dirty Electronics:

Start by disconnecting electronic devices from a power cord or wall socket before you attempt to clean with liquid. First wipe down any screens with a dry microfiber cloth, then using a small amount of isopropyl alcohol mixed with water go over the device again. I suggest putting the mixture on the cloth and not directly on the screen. The isopropyl alcohol also removes fingerprints from iPhone and iPod screens, and grime from computer keyboards. Electronic screens are fragile so be careful and repeatedly wipe stubborn spots instead of heavily wiping with pressure. Although it evaporates quickly, still make sure not to get any liquid inside the device. I suggest you keep going over any smudges or streak marks until they’re gone. Some may come off right away, but some may require a tiny bit more love.

With your electronics now clean you may or may not now feel like you can take over the world, but you should probably just relax for a bit.
