Keep all your devices smudge- and germ-free with these easy-to-use products
These days, most of us can’t get through the day without a smartphone, tablet or laptop. But since you bring these devices with you everywhere, they can easily pick up dirt, fingerprints and germs if you’re not careful.
You can’t clean your screens and keyboards with any old household cleaner, though. Some chemicals, like ammonia, can damage your devices, so you need electronics-specific cleaning products to get the job done. If you want to get your devices as clean as possible, here are the best screen-cleaning wipes, sprays and other products to get rid of dirt and germs.
