Get Up to Speed on How to Clean Your Electronics

The following is a guest post from our sponsor Pledge.

What's the hardest thing to clean in your house? The stove? The blinds? The ceiling fan? While all of those tough-to-reach and tough-to-clean areas can be tricky, there is one household surface that leaves many people stumped when it comes to cleaning -- electronics.


While your electronics may be good for keeping you up-to-speed, they're also good at trapping dust, collecting fingerprints, and gathering smudges. Check out the tips below to clean electronics with ease.

 1.    Turn off and unplug electronic equipment before cleaning; always follow the manufacturers' instructions.

2.    Next, use a cleaner that is specially formulated to clean electronics safely and effectively. Pledge Multi Surface Cleaner works on electronics and even has an anti-static formula.

3.    Spray the cleaner on a soft cloth first. Never spray directly on an electronic surface.

4.    Start at the top of the device and work down for the most thorough, streak-free clean.

5.    Use a cotton swab to get hard-to-reach areas that trap debris.

What's better than giving your electronics a cleaning makeover? Saving time while you do it. Using a cleaner like Pledge Multi Surface allows you to use a single cleaner on all of your electronics, then move on to your wood, glass, and stainless steel surfaces (and more!) without switching solutions.
