Your laptop screen can get filthy fast, especially if you use it every day. Cleaning your device regularly can help keep the dust, grime, and coffee stains under control. But be careful: Sanitizing your screen the wrong way can make more of a mess and even damage your computer.
Laptops get dirty, and dust is the number one culprit. Fortunately, it’s easy to remove. You can do so safely by using the right supplies and following a few simple steps.
Shut down your Laptop
Always unplug and turn off your device before you clean your laptop screen. It’s safer and will make it easier to see the debris.
Use a fibre cloth
- Gently wipe the screen with a clean, dry, microfiber cloth. Never use paper towels or tissues—their fibers may leave lint behind or scratch the screen.
- Press gently on the display and wipe in one direction—don’t wipe in circles.
