How to clean a dirty laptop at home: step-by-step instructions

Your laptop needs regular cleaning from dirt and dust. A sticky keyboard and food residues under the keys are just external aesthetic aspects, but the entire surface can become a breeding ground for bacteria.

PC World experts have told you how to clean your laptop safely. Just three simple steps are enough.

Step 1

Let's start with the most obvious stuff: make sure you turn off the laptop and unplug it. You'll need a damp cloth to clean it, so safety precautions are essential.

Use compressed air for vents and USB ports, keys, etc. The first step in cleaning your laptop is to remove any loose particles. Spray the compressed air at a sufficient distance from the device. This is to prevent condensation from accumulating in the crevices. If your laptop has wide ventilation holes, point the nozzle at them and blow well.

Step 2

Wipe the laptop with a damp microfiber cloth. Experts recommend applying a few drops of alcohol to a damp cloth, which is also a good way to disinfect the keyboard.

Never use harsh cleaners, ammonia, or bleach directly on your laptop. The liquid can get into the crevices and cause damage.

Step 3

Take a cotton swab, dip it in alcohol, and clean the spaces between the keys on the keyboard. This is a great way to clean hard-to-reach places.
