Disinfecting your Device
Disinfecting your computer, keyboard, phone and LCD display.
Squeeze out excess liquid from wipe or disinfecting cloth before using . Lysol wipes are a great option. Never spray anything directly on to electronics.
It is safe to use a disinfecting wipe designed for office/home use. Some disinfecting wipes designed for medical use may cause discoloration, harm surfaces, or even affect functionality of your device. To minimize symptoms, we recommend the following:
Gently wipe the system thoroughly, being careful to ensure no liquid drips into the computer. Do not wipe on connector pins.
After disinfecting, follow the cleaning procedure from the wipe supplier to minimize chemical buildup of disinfectant residue (i.e. wiping away any residual disinfectant after the prescribed contact time).
Always allow the computer to completely dry prior to any use.
Medical wipes and their chemical composition vary greatly. Depending on the chemicals, frequency, and duration of use, medical wipes may impact cosmetic appearance and system functionality. To minimize this risk, we recommend:
Hydrogen peroxide wipes (such as Virox Accel wipes w/ a maximum of 0.5% hydrogen peroxide)
Alcohol based wipes (such as PDI Germicidal or B.Braun Meliseptol Wipes sensitive)
Do not use wipes containing sodium hypochlorite (bleach)
Wiping away residual solvent as soon as possible after the prescribed contact time and wiping the surface again with a dry, lint-free, soft cloth
Daily Cleaning Tips
Daily Cleaning Tips - When disinfection is not required.
Computer or Laptop Screen
Power off your device to prevent damage or shock.
Using a microfiber or soft, lint-free cloth, gently wipe the monitor free of smears.
If you do not own a microfiber cloth or soft, lint-free cloth, a coffee filter will do as well.
If this doesn’t do the trick, dilute a single drop of dish soap in warm water.
Dip your cloth in the solution, and thoroughly wring it out.
Gently wipe down the display with the dampened cloth.
Rinse all the soap out of the cloth, and wring it out again. Go back over the display to remove any soap residue.
Using a dry microfiber or soft, lint-free cloth, gently wipe the screen once more.
Disconnect the keyboard from the power source, remove batteries, or turn off your laptop.
Hold the keyboard upside down and gently shake out any crumbs.
Lightly dab a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Do not oversaturate the swab.
First, do a spot test to ensure the alcohol doesn’t remove any lettering. Continue to swab each key using a light circular motion.
Dry the keys using a microfiber or soft, lint-free cloth.
Unplug or take the batteries out of the mouse.
Lightly dab a cotton swab in gentle rubbing alcohol.
Rub away any dirt or grime.
Cellphones, Tablets, and Other Touchscreen Devices
You’ll need a touchscreen-safe antimicrobial spray or a bit of isopropyl alcohol (depending on what the manufacturer recommends) and a microfiber or soft, lint-free cloth. *Note: Apple and Samsung have both provided guidance recently indicating it is acceptable to dilute a single drop of dish soap in warm water and use this on the device
Power off and unplug your devices.
Lightly dampen the microfiber or soft, lint-free cloth with the spray or alcohol.
Wipe down the screen, avoiding all openings.
Allow the spray to sit for the amount of time noted on the product packaging.
