Steps

  1. 1
    To do this, we need a set of nonabrasive wipes.

  2. 2
    These wipes will be labeled as something that is suitable for cleaning LCD TV or laptop screens.
    Once we have those, we are going to take them and clean the fingerprints, marks, and other things off the laptop screen that everyone who comes near computers likes to leave.

  3. 3
    First, we need to open the container for our wipes, whichever brand they may be.
    The chances are that we are not going to be able to reach them.

  4. 4
    To get wipes, we make sure that the lid is closed.

  5. 5
    We give a squeeze to the container anywhere along the edge.
    It will yield a little bit. Give it a good hard squeeze with two thumbs pushing on the container and pushing on the top barrier.

  6. 6
    If pushing doesn't immediately work, we can also hold it in the upright position, squeeze the container, and pull the lid off.

  7. 7
    Now, we should see that the center of the wipes is put out, so we are going to tug it through the hole.

  8. 8
    If we have a new pack that no one has ever touched before, then we should not pull the wipes from the outer edge.
    If we pull the wipes from the outer edge, we'll not be able to pull the wipes through the lid. We need to pull straight up from the center.

    Then, we open up the top piece.

  10. 10
    We take the wipe by the end.

  11. 11
    We push the wipe through the cross-shaped hole in the lid very carefully with our fingers.
    The hole can be a painful trap for our fingers.

  12. 12
    Then, we place the lid back on top, making sure that we are not folding the wipes underneath.

  13. 13
    We push the lid down.

  14. 14
    We double-check that the lid is closed.
    In the tutorial, it was not closed, so we gave it another push to close it finally.

  15. 15
    The next thing we do is pull the wipe out.
    Next time we pull one out, we have to make sure that as it comes up, we get the tail of the wipe and pull it just a little more. We must not end up with a wipe breaking off and getting stuck inside. In the example, three of them are taken out.

    Now, we make sure that the system is not on.
    On a laptop, we can press keys, tap the touchpad, and check the power button to ensure that the computer is turned off. The reason we need the system turned off is that we probably will need to clean the keyboard as well.

  17. 17
    We take the two wipes that we have pulled out earlier, and we are just going to start cleaning from the top of the screen.
    We wipe across the screen. We do not wipe in circular motions. The reason we don't wipe in circular motions is that circular motions can create large circular scratches to which a human eye gets attracted. We always go back and forth across until the screen is clean.

    We give the screen some time to dry.

  19. 19
    When the screen has dried off, we give it a quick look.
    There might be some little marks and spots left to clean.

    Rather than reusing the dirty wipes, which we are going to throw away, we are going to pull out a couple more.
    We set the container off to the side.

    Once again, we are going to go in the back-and-forth manner across the screen with the two more towels.
    The reason we are going back and forth is that if we clean in a circular motion on a laptop screen, we run the risk of scratching it. Scratches are something that draws the human eye. Whereas scratches in straight lines will draw attention much less likely.

    Now that the screen is clean, we are going to clean the bottom piece.

  23. 23
    We are going to use the same wipe that we used on the screen to clean the body of the laptop.
    We clean in the back-and-forth motions, not circular. We are cleaning the keys and system components to remove all dirt.

    We got the system cleaned up.
    In this video, the computer was accidentally turned on, which is fine and can happen to anyone. We are going to shut down the PC because we do not need the computer on.
