What is the best way to dust black electronic appliances?

SheilaLisa S.Gale Allen Jenness


When I dust tv, computer, etc. the dust does not come off, but just sweeping it from one place to the other. These items are a magnet for dust. I used microfiber cloths, Swiffer dusters, nothing works.

    Swiffer makes some great dusting products. Actually attract the dust instead of smearing it around like a dry microfiber cloth.

    I wet the cloth with winded. I don’t think it is recommended, but it works, I have been doing it for several years, it hasn’t caused any problems.

    compressed air your friend with your electronics like your computer and keyboard. You can buy cans of compressed air if you choose. I bought a small air compressor with hose and air nosle to blow most my dust off before wiping them down with a micro cloth. There are products In your electronic stores or WalMart specifically made for cleaning your HDTV screen that I use on my TV as well as my phone screens too! Many times the cleaning solution will come with its own cloth to use too! You know you also should pull off a cover on your computer and blow out the inside too? It also gets full of dust and makes your computer run hotter then it should! I try to blow mine out least once a year if not every 6 months. Good luck

    Use a damp rag.

    As a professional housecleaner, be careful what you use on your hdtv. Some provide cloths that have no static, I use swiffer products & do a bit, shake dust off outside & do more etc. or a damp cloth, folding to unused areas until clean.
