How to clean the screen of your Apple computer

First steps

To clean the computer screen, the first thing we have to do is disconnect any external connection to the team and turn off the screen Nothing happens if the computer is on, but it is best to have the computer turned off, to prevent the screen from turning on for any reason and burning the panel due to the presence of water.

The best way to clean the device is with the cloth that Apple sells from its website or use any cloth that we use to clean glasses. It is important to mention that it is very interesting to use two cloths, one to clean the chassis and the other to clean the screen. To clean up Mac, you have to perform the following steps:

screen and chassis

Let’s take the cloth with warm water, where we have to moisten it a lot with water and then press to remove all the liquid in order to avoid spillage on the equipment. If you have a laptop, we have to change the position of it, where the screen is the one that rests on a flat table and we hit it with the cloth on the screen, very carefully. First, we are going to pass the mop or cloth around the edges, which is where the greatest amount of waste is deposited and then, through the center of the screen. In case of having a desktop, then you do the same process but without changing the position of the equipment.

Cleaning always has to be bottom up, to prevent the small specks of dust that come out from falling on the keyboard or back on the screen. You can also wet the cloth again and repeat the process if you think there has been an area where the result has not been perfect. Along with cleaning the screen, it is also recommended clean the back of the computer, to prevent dust from accumulating in the connection port entrances and grill where the audio comes out. The cloth has to be completely dry to prevent the entry of liquids. Finally, it is that you have two cloths, one to clean the casing and another to clean the screen to remove dust and be able to shine the screen. If you use the same cloth, it can cause scratches on the screen.

Fundamental recommendations

It is always good to have the cloth extended and not wrinkled to avoid overpressure in some areas of the screen, especially because it leaves dust marks concentrated on the cloth or mop. Finally, leave the equipment for 5-10 minutes to dry completely. Regarding the products, you can never use products that are abrasiveeither alcohol products, metal cleaners that contain alcohol or bleach because it can seriously damage the screen of your device or the chassis and above all, it can cause the loss of warranty due to improper use.

If you want to buy technical cleaning products, in the Apple’s own website sells cleaning equipment, but in most cases a little water is enough. In the event that this is not the case, we strongly recommend using Apple products, especially since the product warranty may be voided.
