Tips for Cleaning Your Tablet or Touchscreen Device

You know what’s great about tablet devices? How perfect they are for learning and little fingers. No need to worry about clicking and a mouse — your KneeBouncers‘ pointer finger can swipe that eBook from one page to the next. Or catch that cupcake if you’re playing our Cupcake Catch app.

Know what’s not so great? The fingerprint mess — complete with sticky jelly — that your kiddo can leave behind.

Here are a few tips for cleaning the touchscreen devices in your life!

  1. You can get most fingerprints off with a dry, soft cloth (you might have one that you use to clean your eyeglasses) or a cleaning tissue that is lint- and chemical-free. Microfiber cloths are best!
  2. Skip using premoistened lens-cleaning tissues to clean your screen. Many contain alcohol, which might damage the coating on your screen.
  3. Never use any household cleaners on your touchscreen. They can degrade the coating that keeps the screen from absorbing oil from your fingers.
  4. Be sure to turn off your device before cleaning.
  5. If you elect to use a commercial touchscreen targeted cleaning agent {that’s our way of not endorsing a specific one!}, avoid getting too much moisture around the edges of the screen.
