Computer cleaning

I need to clean my laptop & desktops; screens mainly but also the covers. I haven't found a local shop that sells a cleaning kit yet but know I can buy online in a variety of pack sizes from 5 to 30.

Are there products that I can buy separately like lint-free wipes, air spray, cleaning spray & where? What do the professionals use?

Thanks,
Godfrey

Does this work with LCD screens? I got some "Special plastic Wipes" from Maplins when someone desided to draw on it with pen, didnt work in the end had to use isopropyl alcohol which worked a treat.

Good store for all kinds of bits, that compressed air is expensive though IMO.

Re: Computer cleaning

I usually use a paintbrush on the keyboard & a damp cloth on the screen.

Re: Computer cleaning

You can wash your keyboard in the washmachine, wrap it in a towel and tie it with string, dont forget to make sure its dry before turning it back on. Avoid using paper towels, toilet paper, tissue paper, or something like your shirt to wipe the LCD screen. Avoid cleaning products that contain ammonia, ethyl alcohol, acetone, toluene, ethyl acid, or methyl chloride. These chemicals can react with the materials that the LCD screen is made of which could yellow the screen or cause other kinds of damage. Never spray liquid directly on the LCD screen or it could run inside the monitor and cause damage. A 50/50 mix of white vinegar or iso-propyl alcohol (Maplins) and distilled/ de-ionised water (local garage) can be used on a soft Spectacle type cleaning cloth and dried with a shamoise leather, dont put too much pressure on the screen or you can cause damage if its lcd. You can leave the flat screen on and turn down the brightness to make the screen black which will help you see where the muck is.

I've given keyboards a shower before now, just leave them in a warm airing cupboard upside down for 24 hours and tehy are fine ( Obviously don't do this with LAPTOP keyboards!!!!! )
