How to Clean and Disinfect Smartphones, Tablets and Other Gadgets

February 26, 2015 2:03 pm

By now, most people have heard all of the frightening statistics about the number of germs on your cell phone, your computer keyboard, and even on your brand new tablet. If all of this information is starting to make you wary of your electronic devices, these simple tips will help you to keep them clean and germ-free.

  1. Computer mouse. You touch your computer mouse all day long while working or browsing the web, so every now and then you should run a pre-moistened disinfecting cloth over the entire surface of the mouse.
  2. Touch-screen phone or tablet. While touch screens may seem difficult to clean, all it takes is a dry cloth and a scratch-free cleaning wipe designed for electronics to get them looking (and feeling) spotless.
  3. Computer keyboard. Because your computer keyboard contains so many nooks and crannies, you’ll want to clean it using the hose or other tube-like attachment on your household vacuum. Next, gently swab the surface of the keys and the keyboard’s outer edges with a pre-moistened disinfecting wipe (well-wrung, if the wipe is particularly wet). Be sure to disconnect the keyboard before beginning to clean it.
  4. Remote control. If you’ve ever seen a young child put a remote control in his or her mouth, you’ll understand why it’s so important to wipe yours with a disinfecting wipe at least once per week.
