How To Clean a Laptop Screen and Keyboard?

Your laptop screen and the keypad collects a lot of dirt, oil and dust. This can affect your performance when using the laptop for very long periods of time. It also reduces the life of your laptop because this may cause it to heat up too much or generate more noise etc.

Buy a microfiber cloth from the store near you

You can use any soft type of clean cloth to clean your laptop screen but make sure that it is not made out of paper or anything else that will leave behind particles on your screen which might scratch it later on during usage or even leave an oily residue on the keys after wiping them down which might attract dirt easily thus causing more problems.

  Most laptops also have a special cleaning solution available for purchase in the store near you. It is recommended that you use this for cleaning your laptop instead of other chemical solutions that might hurt your skin or leave behind a bad odor.

Steps to clean the Laptop Screen

Turn off the laptop completely and remove the AC adapter if plugged in so that there are no chances of getting an electric shock.

Turn the screen face down on a flat surface after removing all objects which may be kept over it while using it to avoid spilling any water or solution onto your laptop’s keyboard or body where it can cause major damage.

Get hold of a microfiber cloth which you have already brought from outside and moisten its edge with some water/ window cleaner/or even saliva (if no other liquids are available).

Wipe the cloth over your laptop screen to remove any dirt, dust or any other particles that might be accumulating on its surface. Make sure you do not press too hard as this will create a scratchy looking smudge which cannot come off easily.

  Once all the dirt is removed from your laptop’s screen wipe it dry with a clean section of the same cloth and then turn over the laptop onto its normal position.

You can also use a plain dampened paper towel to wipe down the keyboard as well if need be as this would help eliminate any stubborn grime that might have accumulated there.

Make sure you use only cold water for cleaning your laptop and never use hot or warm water as this may cause damage to some electrical components and circuits.

You can also use a vacuum cleaner to suck all the dirt and dust particles out from under the laptop keys and then blow them off with a compressed air canister.

But make sure that you do not hold the laptop upside down while doing this as the liquid from the keyboard may flow into other internal parts of the machine and cause serious damage.
