Computer keyboards and input devices can be hotbeds of bacteria, especially if they're used by several people – in a school or office environment, for example.
Regularly disinfecting your keyboard, trackpad, and/or mouse is the best way to sterilize these devices and remove any lingering biothreats, and it only takes five minutes to do. Here’s how to do this:
To follow the steps below, you'll need some bleach-free disinfectant wipes – many companies may recommend Lysol Wipes while some allow other wipes containing containing isopropyl alcohol for the job but it’s best to check with them to avoid damaging anything.
Before you do anything else, shut down your Computer and unplug the power adapter.
Take one of the wipes and squeeze it to remove any excess dampness, then gently clean your Devices' trackpad, keyboard, and/or mouse. Keep your pressure light to prevent any excess liquid from escaping onto the surfaces.
Next, use a water-dampened microfiber or lint-free cloth and wipe the areas again.
Take a dry microfiber or lint-free cloth and wipe over the keyboard and trackpad one last time.
Below are some important “don'ts” and precautions when it comes to disinfecting keyboards, trackpads, and mice, so it's worth mentioning them here:
Do not use disinfectant wipes containing bleach or disinfectant sprays in general.
Do not use an extremely damp disinfectant wipe to clean the area. If you encounter a very damp wipe it may need to be squeezed to remove some of the excess liquid before use.
Do not allow the liquid from the disinfectant wipe to sit or pool on the area being disinfected for a long amount of time.
Do not use rough towels or cloths to dry the area.
Do not use excess force when disinfecting the area around the keyboard; this could damage the keys.
Most of us are touching our phones constantly throughout the day, which means the phone can be a magnet for germs, dirt, and fingerprints. It's a good idea to regularly clean your phone, especially during the flu season and, right now, the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
Unplug all cables and turn off the mobile device.
Use a soft, slightly damp light-free cloth to rub debris and fingerprints from the display.
Avoid getting moisture in openings.
A simple solution of isopropyl alcohol is also an effective way to eliminate illness-causing particulates from your mobile device.
With a cleaning spray or 60% isopropyl alcohol, moisten a microfiber cloth until it's just damp.
Wipe down the device, front and back, with the microfiber cloth. If your device is water-resistant, you can use a soft, lint-free cloth with warm soapy water.
Dip a Q-Tip or cotton swab and go over the edges of the device to make sure to disinfect all of the crevices.
It's a good practice to make sure to do a small test spot when using any kind of screen cleaning spray just to make sure it's not causing damage to the device's fingerprint coating.
Cleaners other than isopropyl alcohol and those that are specifically designed for displays should be avoided. Harsh cleaners that contain bleach and other surfactants should not be used under any circumstances
