How to Clean Your MacBook Air Screen and Keyboard

Dampen a soft, lint-free cloth with water only, then use it to clean the computer's screen . To clean hard-to-remove smudges or fingerprints on the display or exterior of your Mac, you can use a cloth moistened with a 70-percent isopropyl alcohol (IPA) solution to gently wipe the display or enclosure of your Mac laptop.

Welcome back to Tracy’s Place! Today we’re going to learn how to clean a MacBook Air screen and keyboard, including the crevices and other hard-to-reach areas. Even if you have a cover on your keyboard, you may still have some stray particles and smudges that need cleaning.

To clean the screen, you’ll need a microfiber cloth. Clear away any dust or particles from the screen or computer first, then dampen the cloth slightly with water and rub it in to distribute the moisture. Don’t use too much water! Wipe the screen gently, pressing lightly but firmly, and then go back over it again. Be sure to get into the corners and edges, where fingerprints and smudges tend to accumulate. If you see any spots that need extra attention, apply a little more pressure and rub gently until they’re gone.

To clean the keyboard, use a Q-tip dampened with water to wipe away particles and other debris from the crevices between keys. If you have a cover, you can clean it with the same microfiber cloth you used for the screen. Just dampen it slightly and wipe it dry.

Finally, don’t forget to clean the bottom part of your MacBook Air! Use the same microfiber cloth, dampened slightly with water, to wipe away any smudges or dirt. Be sure to get into any crevices or seams, and pay special attention to the touchpad area.

Cleaning your MacBook Air screen and keyboard is easy and quick! Just remember to use a microfiber cloth and be gentle with your pressure, and you’ll have a clean, sparkling computer in no time.
