Cleaning your device

Whether it is your school chromebook or iPad here’s how to clean for germs:

  1. Wash hands before use.
  2. Wash hands after use.
  3. Wipe keyboard with a (paper)towel that has been sprayed with a multipurpose cleaner. This should be done daily. 
  4. Don’t spray the keyboard directly, or use the spray on the monitor or iPad glass.

If the keys on your keyboard are grimy, we recommend:

  • Wrapping the end of your finger in a baby-wipe (not a Clorox wipe) and wiping each key individually.
  • Swiping across the keys while applying pressure may cause damage, so clean keys one-at-a-time.
  • This is not a substitute for germ removal.

If the screen or monitor are grimy, we recommend wiping with either a soft lens-cleaning cloth or a damp (water) clean cloth.
