We all try to keep our homes and environments clean and sanitary. However, sometimes things slip through the cracks. And unfortunately, our electronic devices tend to be one of those things. Most objects in our household can be washed with water, but obviously, electronic devices cannot. Because of this, many people go about their lives never cleaning their electronics, which is unsanitary.

In fact, we touch our cell phones and computers more than anything else in our households, including our car keys. As a result, the amount of dirt, dust, and bacteria that builds on our electronic devices is more considerable than most people would think. Therefore, we have put together a list of common electronic devices and ways you can sanitize them without damaging or breaking them.

How To Clean Electronic Devices?


Your headphones are consistently being put inside your ears all the time. If left unclean, your headphones can start accumulating earwax, which not only is gross but can cause them to break too! That’s why you want to clean your headphones by using alcohol-dipped cotton swabs to get the gunk out and then wiping them down with a dry lint-free cloth.

TV, Cell Phone, and Computer Screens

When it comes to any of your electronic screens, you never want to put anything remotely wet onto them, as it can damage your expensive devices. Instead, try using an antimicrobial microfiber cloth to clean your screen of any smudges and streaks.

Computer Keyboard

Your keyboard comes into contact with your hands constantly, and your hands come into contact with everything else. That’s why it’s essential to clean your keyboard regularly using a soft brush to get rid of dust and dirt, followed by an antimicrobial microfiber cloth.

Power Cords

Your phone charges and power cords are magnets for dust build-up. That’s why you should unplug your cords from time to time and dust them off with a duster to remove any build-up. Should your cord really need some help, try using a slightly moist towel with soap and water to wipe it down.

Gaming Consoles

Gaming Consoles are also notorious for collecting dirt and dust. The build-up from the dirt and dust can get inside your gaming system and lead to your console breaking. We recommend unplugging your console and then using a spray of bleach-free cleaning solution onto an antimicrobial microfiber cloth and wiping the surface of your console with it, as well as any gaming controllers. Keep in mind you are only using a very slight amount of liquid on the cloth, as too much moisture could damage your system. Please proceed with caution.
