General Cleaning tips

Please do not use any harsh cleaning solvents on electronic equipment directly. You may use disinfectant wipes and dusting tools to clean your equipment on a regular basis.
A good tip is to always keep any food items and liquids well away from your electronic equipment to avoid messy spills and possible malfunctions of equipment.
It is always a good idea to turn OFF your electronic equipment before you clean it to avoid any possible problems that may arise accidentally from possible keystrokes on the keyboard or mouse.
