How to Clean Your Laptop without Physically Damaging it

A computer can be so dirty after months of use. It is disgusting. But how do you clean it without physically damaging it? Here are some tips on how to clean your laptop without physically damaging it.

To begin with, you need to disconnect all cords plugged into your laptop. It will be time-consuming to do this, but it is the only way. Also if you have any CDs or DVDs on your computer remove them because they could get scratched. If there are any little screws on the exterior of the laptop take note of them and put them somewhere you won’t lose them. If there are any removable covers like the battery cover, remove them carefully because if not careful they could snap off.

Open up your laptop and take a good look inside. Look for any dust bunnies and clean them up with either your fingers or compressed air. Make sure you don’t use too much force because you could damage the laptop if not careful. Flip over your laptop and lightly shake it to get rid of any loose particles that may be in there then wipe down the exterior with a dry microfiber cloth. You can also use window cleaner or even diluted rubbing alcohol if you need it. Slide your laptop back together carefully ensuring that you put all screws in their places and that any covers are secure.

If your screen is filled with so much dirt that you cannot see your screen properly, then a simple solution of soap and water will work wonders. Just mix a small amount of general-purpose soap into a bowl of water. Wipe the solution onto your laptop screen using a cotton cloth and allow it to dry naturally. Do not use excessive amounts as this could cause irreparable damage, but also make sure that you do not wipe off any excess moisture which might be left behind as this can impair your vision even further. If you need to remove stubborn stains from your laptop screen, then an LCD cleaner can be found in specialist electronic stores and applied in the same way you would apply a soap and water solution.
