How Do I Clean My Computer and Screen

Taken from

 As easy as it is to swoosh around the house with one multipurpose cleaner, the spray you use to clean windows and mirrors could harm your computer. "Steer clear of all-purpose cleaners with acetone or alcohol, since they can take off the screen’s protective coating," says Darren Dotson, an IT systems administrator in New York City.

Instead, use a soft microfiber cloth, such as an Endust Micro Fiber Towel, to dust off the computer and the monitor. If the computer has endured too many sticky fingers and a dry cloth just won’t cut it, then turn off the machine and monitor to wipe down the screen with a slightly damp cloth. If you’re cleaning the exterior, use a cloth moistened with a mild all-purpose cleaner, like Windex. Or try a computer-specific product, like Sara Lee Cleaning Wipes from Endust.

Leaving your machine on while spraying any liquid could cause a short and ruin any electrical component attached even one not in contact with a liquid.
