How to clean your computer or laptop safely

Is there anything that deserves to be dirty? While you may be pondering that one, take it from me that your computer can never make your list, if you even have one. You have the health of your computer to be worried about, almost as much as you worry about yours.

From the keyboards that breed bacteria to the screen that gets coated in dust. This is so important that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prescribe consistent cleaning of the major computer hardware that you touch everyday.

Asides from the sweet feeling I get from a clean and transparent screen, it is also useful to clean it as you clean the keyboard and mouse, for the overall health of the machine. You can clean your LCD screen using any of these methods:

  1. Air-spraying the screen to clear of all dust particles resting on it.
  2. Combine equal parts of distilled water and vinegar in a solution, then dip a rough cloth in the solution and wipe the screen with it.
  3. There are also some microfibre materials you can purchase from local shops around you that deal on computer wares. These cloths are designed to wipe the computer screen, but check to ensure that the one you are buying is meant for a computer like yours.


Make no mistakes, cleaning your computer is not a trivial task. Below we consider some awesome ways to clean your computer:
