Cleaning Electronics

From the Phone to the computer keeping your electronic equipment clean will help it work properly and last longer! Dust and dirt can settle in the keyboard of your computer. Use a small paintbrush or a clean make-up brush to loosen the dust and then use a soft brush attachment on your vacuum to remove it. Use a baby wipe to clean surface dirt from the housing of your computer and monitor. The television? Spritz a little window cleaner on a soft, lint-free cloth and use it to clean the screen. Never spray a cleanser directly onto your TV screen. For flat panel television and computer screens gently wipe with a soft, lint-free, cotton cloth. If you still have some dirt, use a tiny amount of rubbing alcohol on your cloth. Dirt and oils from your skin can make a CD skip. Wearing cotton gloves, hold the CD by the center hole and the rim, and use a soft, clean, lint-free cloth to wipe in straight lines from the center outward. If it is still skipping, dip your cloth in a mild soap and water solution. To clean dirt and grime from your phone, wipe it down with a soft cloth and a little rubbing alcohol. Use a cotton swab dipped in alcohol to get into the tiny crevices. If your cordless phone isn't charging, use a clean pencil eraser to clean the metal contacts on the base unit.
