Computer, an electronic device, works for the convenience of man. Though man has made it, yet, he behaves as a handicapped without one.

Cleaning in literal terms doesn’t mean to wash it; it refers to dry process of waving away the unwanted dust that has settled o the device. So, here you will come across the answers for a question like How to clean your computer/ laptop?

  • To start off get the basic materials required for cleaning it, like- a soft clean dusting cloth, a brush for cleaning through the keyboard and a spray which is specifically used for removing away the dust and junk from the things and lastly a liquid shiner to give it a final touch.
