Electronic Device Cleaning


  • Power off your device and unplug all external power sources, devices, and cables before cleaning

  • Use only a soft, lint-free cloth or any other electronic approved cleaning wipe to gently clean the device 

  • Avoid abrasive cloths, towels, paper towels, or similar items unapproved for cleaning delicate devices

  • Avoid excessive wiping, especially on the screen, which might cause damage or discoloration

  • Always allow your device to dry completely before powering it back on. After cleaning with a solution of any type it is recommended to dry the unit with another soft, lint-free cloth

Examples of approved cleaning wipes would be Endust®/Windex® for Electronics®, eyeglass cleaners, or a dampened (not saturated) soft cloth with distilled water. A 70% isopropyl alcohol based solution cleaning agent may be used on your device’s non-porous surfaces for disinfection purposes. 


  • Never use an extremely damp or saturated cloth or wipe to clean your device

  • Never use excessive force when cleaning your device, especially on the screen and keyboard

  • Never use aerosol sprays, bleaches, peroxides, acetone, abrasives, or other general disinfectant sprays 

  • Never spray cleaners directly onto your device, submerge it, or allow a solution to pool on any surfaces of the device for an extended period of time

  • Never use standard glass cleaners (e.g. Windex\Glance) to clean your computer screen

  • Keep cleaning liquids that may spill away from your device or get moisture into any openings
