NO MORE GRIME. THE SAFE WAY.
Welcome to my list of recommended computer cleaning products. If you are still splashing water on electronics and scratching screens with rough paper, you need to stop. The idea of cleaning is to let your computer last a little longer, and not to destroy it… So here it is, a sharing on a list of products that I use to keep computers clean – The ones that do not cause an explosion or burn down your house. Read on!
1) MICROFIBER CLOTH
Stop using those rough pieces of paper or cloth to wipe the screen, you will end up with a ton of micro scratches all over it. Use a microfiber cloth instead, as these are a lot softer and gentle. They are also known to pick up dust particles very well and are totally washable too.
2) MICROFIBER DUSTER
You have probably seen these around everywhere. So yeah, if you have a thick layer of dust, pick them off using these dusters and a cleaning cloth first… Not nice to don’t spread them around with an air blower.
3) KEYBOARD CLEANING GEL
How do clean up those nooks and crannies on a keyboard? Washing it with soap and water is definitely not an option, so here is the next best thing we can get – Stick a piece of gel slime thing to pick up all those tiny boogers stuck inside.
4) LENS BLOWER
These are actually made to blow the dust off camera lenses… But who says that we cannot use it for computer parts? Although some people may prefer to use a pressurized air can, you will have no worries of running out of gas with this one. 😆
5) ELECTRONIC WIPES
Not a fan of washing and reusing the cleaning cloth? Then get yourself some electronic wipes. These will clean off the dirt, are anti-static, and will not scratch your screen.
6) ELECTRONIC CONTACT CLEANER
To clean the windows, we use glass cleaner. To clean wood furniture, we use wood polish. So to clean electronic parts. we use an electronic contact cleaner. These are particularly good at cleaning up dirty contact points – When you have a dirty USB flash drive that won’t connect, don’t blow spit at it. Use the contact cleaner and a cotton bud to clean it up.
7) SCREEN CLEANING SOLUTION
To get a squeaky clean screen, you can actually use any glass or plastic cleaning solution found in most hardware stores…
8) SCRATCH REPAIR FOR GLASS
Got a scratch on your screen? Try one of these glass polish that is used for car windscreens… Beware though, they are not really cheap, and no guarantees that it will repair deep scratches.
9) SCRATCH REPAIR FOR PLASTIC
Here is one for the plastic screens instead.
10) FAN DUST FILTER
This is not a cleaning product, but as the age-old saying goes – Prevention is better than cure. This cheap and simple piece of fan filter will stop a lot of dust from entering the casing, and saving you a lot of time from cleaning up a choked fan.
11) KEYBOARD COVER
Are you a coffee or tea lover? One of this cheap silicone covers might just save you from a spill disaster.
12) DUST MASK
This one is for the human and not the computers… Inhaling a lot of dust sure is a bad idea, so just get yourself some protection.
