7. Coffee filters are brilliant at removing the dust on your computer monitor
Coffee filters are ideal for cleaning here because the material they’re made of can’t scratch your screen.
8. Use a simple homemade brush to clean the USB ports on your computer
To make this simple tool, you will need:
- A stiff piece of plastic
- Some kind of synthetic material for cleaning (for example, the soft part of a velcro strip)
Stick the piece of synthetic material to the plastic. It should be slightly narrower than the width of a USB port. Any lumps of glue that build up when you’re making the cleaning brush should be smoothed out so that it’s not uneven in any way. Once the glue has dried, carefully clean all the USB ports.
9. Wipe the glass screen on your smartphone or tablet with ordinary paper
Paper is great for cleaning glass screens specifically — don’t under any circumstances use it for ones made of plastic or liquid-crystalline material. It can also help to get rid of any scratches that have appeared on your smartphone or tablet. Applying circular movements, rub any scratches with paper, and they should disappear within a few minutes.
