Like any notebook or computer, all the care when cleaning is not enough! It is precisely for fear of doing wrong that many people pay someone to do this or just do not do it. However, it is of paramount importance to clean it to help keep its useful life as long as possible. In this article we will share with you some very simple tips on how to clean your Macbook and iMac. This will prevent possible damage to your machine. Check it out below!
- Material used
- Two soft, lint-free cloths. (Do not choose towels, paper towels or similar)
- A little clean water.
- Wipes moistened with disinfectants.
- Keep both off
In both external and monitor cleaning, it is important that the iMack is turned off and the power cord not connected to other devices. With the MacBook the situation is practically the same: Computer off, without the battery and with the power adapter disconnected. This is done to prevent possible accidents or damage to the unit.
To clean your Macbook and iMac
When cleaning the outside of the MacBook and also to clean the iMack, you should use a damp, almost dry, soft, lint-free cloth to avoid scratching. It is important not to use sprays, aerosols, solvents or any other product that damages the polish.
Give preference only to good old water and use a dry cloth to keep moisture from draining in the openings and do not force while passing the cloth, only a slight pressure is sufficient. On the screen or monitor, use a soft, lint-free cloth, clean and moist with water.
Make circular movements so as not to scratch it in any way, also without exerting force, with only a slight pressure. With a dry, soft, lint-free cloth, dry both the MacBook and iMack monitor.
It is important to note that when cleaning the bottom case of the 13-inch MacBook End-2009 and the same as in mid-2010, a 3M gray microfiber or a soft, soft cloth should be used. To clean the keyboard, trackpad, or mouse, use Lysol wipes or Clorox sanitizer wipes. If the handkerchief is too wet, twist to remove the excess. It is important not to use it if it is too moist.

- Do not use thick cloths on the monitor and the bottom cabinet.
- Do not spray anything on the monitor, use only the cloth.
