Clean Screens and Tidy Typing: A Guide to Refreshing Your Monitors and Keyboards

  • By Southridge Technology

Monitors and keyboards are essential components of any computer setup, but they can also become breeding grounds for bacteria and germs if not cleaned regularly.

In this short article, we will explore some tips on how to clean your monitors and keyboards.

Cleaning Monitors:

Firstly, turn off your monitor and unplug it from the power source. Use a microfiber cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the screen gently. Avoid using paper towels or other abrasive materials that could scratch the surface of your monitor. For tough stains, you can use a mixture of equal parts of water and vinegar on a cloth, but make sure not to spray the solution directly on the monitor.

Cleaning Keyboards:

Keyboards can be a bit trickier to clean than monitors, as they tend to collect dust, food particles, and other debris between the keys. Start by unplugging the keyboard from the computer and shaking it gently to remove any loose debris. Then use a can of compressed air to blow out any remaining dust and debris.

For a deeper clean, use a soft-bristled brush to gently scrub the keys, or use a small vacuum cleaner attachment to suck out any dirt. You can also use a damp cloth with a little bit of soap to wipe down the keys, but make sure to wring out the cloth well to avoid getting water into the keyboard.

Keeping your monitors and keyboards clean is essential for the longevity of your devices, as well as your health. Regular cleaning can help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria and improve the overall appearance of your computer setup. Remember to turn off and unplug your devices before cleaning and use gentle materials to avoid scratching or damaging them.
