Computer: If your computer is very dusty from outside, then you can use vacuum cleaner to clean the same. You need to hold the vacuum cleaner a bit away from the outer case and vacuum out the dust easily. This way the dust settled inside also will come out easily. Then use wet cloth to wipe off the stubborn dirt.

Cables: If you have a desktop then you probably have long cables too along with it. To clean these cables use soft cloth and dip it in cleaning solution or rubbing alcohol and clean the cables with it.

Mouse: If you have a mouse with a removable tracking ball, use a 50/50 vinegar-water solution to clean it. First, remove the ball from underneath the mouse by twisting off the cover over it. Use a cloth, dampened with the solution to wipe the ball clean and to remove fingerprints and dirt from the mouse itself. Then use a moistened cotton swab to clean out the gunk from inside the ball chamber.

  • Never eat or drink anywhere near the laptop or desktop
  • Always test the solution you intend to use for cleaning on a small area first.
