MLTI Tip: Cleaning Your MacBook

Follow these rules when cleaning the outside of your computer:

  1. Shut down your MacBook, unplug the power adapter, and remove the battery.
  2. Use a damp, soft, lint-free cloth to clean the outside of the computer (dampen the cloth with water only). Don’t allow any moisture to get in the openings.
  3. Don’t spray liquid directly on the computer.

To clean the MacBook screen, do the following:

  1. Shut down your MacBook, unplug the power adapter, and remove the battery.
  2. Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with water and gently wipe the screen. Never spray liquid directly on the screen. It may drip inside the display and cause damage.

You can also use a mild glass cleaner that contains no alcohol or ammonia. Most office supply stores sell cleaning kits specifically designed for computer screens.
