Cleaning Macbook screen can easily be done by anyone even if you are not a “technically-inclined” person. With just a few simple steps, you can restore the luster of your Macbook’s screen back to its original condition. The steps are as follows:
Steps to clean Macbook screen
First, take out the protective sheet of your Macbook screen. Now, clean your Macbook surface using a dry cloth or paper towel. Put some water onto the dry cloth or paper towel so that the water is still on the surface. If you don’t have a microfibre cloth, make sure you use an abrasive-friendly, cotton fabric-based cloth and a dry one for better results.
Now wipe your Macbook’s screen with any type of cloth or paper towel to remove excess dirt, dust, or grease. If possible, try to use an isopropyl alcohol wipe or disinfecting wipes. If you don’t have these items at home, you can purchase them from local home supply stores. For this cleaning process, you might need to purchase additional cleaning products for the specific model and year of your Macbook. For this purpose, you can also consult online reviews about which products work best for different models of Macbook.
Next, close all the applications you are currently working on and turn your Macbook screen off. As a safety measure, close all windows as well. Leave your Macbook’s power adapter plugged in, as you don’t want to accidentally short it out. Also, switch off the monitor as it can also pose a potential electrical hazard while you clean the PC. You can close all the other monitors as well.
Using soft-bristled toothbrush
Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, gently brush the area surrounding the computer’s monitor, and use the toothbrush tip to clean the top and bottom bezel. Then, force connector or tabs by pressing them inwards, if you are using a force connector. Use the opposite force connector or tabs, in order to release the bezel. Rinse the force connector or tabs with warm water.
Lastly, dry the surface with a clean cloth. You may wipe away excess wax or moisture with a soft cloth or tissues. However, this may not be effective if you are dealing with a very difficult or scratchy spot. For this reason, you can utilize a soft-bristled toothbrush or a small pointed hair dryer to clean the entire surface. Once done, simply wipe away the dried-out area with a new clean piece of cloth.
That’s a simple steps to cleaning your Macbook screen. Hope the tips above can help you.
