The laptop keyboard may be one of those areas that is least paid attention, which is the one that is used the most. If the equipment is used to work, the amount of dirt that can accumulate in the area is very large. But for a perfect cleaning, special care must be taken so that the keyboard is not damp.

Items to use

  • Microfiber cloths
  • Isopropyl alcohol (minimum 90%)
  • Compressed air spray
  • Cotton buds
  • Levers ‘spudger’

How do you clean?

If what you want is to carry out a basic cleaning, the most important thing is to turn off the computer and disconnect it from the electrical current.

Turning it over so that the dirt remains fall is one of the first steps, if those small pieces of dust and residue do not come out, the best and gentlest thing is to use a spray of compressed air.

Once most of the dirt has been removed, use a microfiber cloth or brush and an alcohol swab to dab into the key holes.

To finish, a few drops of rubbing alcohol on a microfiber cloth are perfect for removing dirt from the surface of the keys . After this, you will have to wait a few minutes, until it dries, to use it again.

The laptop user can carry out this cleaning irregularly, especially now that disinfection is already part of daily life due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Deep cleaning can also be done in regular basis. For this, a lever or a ‘spudger’ is used to remove the dirt very delicately by passing a microfiber cloth with a little alcohol.
