Spring is in the air but gunk is in your gadgets. There are the smudges and crumbs you can see and the creepy-crawly bacterium that you can’t (and would rather not). Studies have shown that infection-causing E coli and Staphylococcus aureus, fecal matter (yep), and just plain dirt are hanging out on your tech.
That might make you want to dunk everything into a vat of bleach, but it wouldn’t be the best thing for you or your devices. Instead, grab some microfiber cloths, Q-tips, distilled water, isopropyl alcohol and dish soap and read our guide to getting your gadgets gleaming.
Note: Before you clean anything, unplug it or turn it off.
Smartphone and tablet Say what you will but you’ve probably taken your smartphone or tablet into less than sanitary conditions (we are talking about the bathroom).
