Keep these things in mind:

Damp microfiber cloth

When removing dust from your gadgets, simply wipe the area with a damp microfiber cloth. It is the same cloth used in cleaning eye glasses. Microfiber is much more recommended compared to paper towels because it does not cause scratches or streaks.

Rubbing alcohol mixture

Disinfecting your phone regularly is a must! Clean it out by creating your own homemade cleaning solution fit for your gadgets. Mix water and rubbing alcohol together to help remove germs and dirt.

Cotton swabs

Cotton swabs work well when cleaning the nooks and crannies of your gadgets. Try dipping it in a bowl of ½ cup of water and ½ cup of rubbing alcohol to clean the small spaces between your keyboards.

Can of compressed air

Compressed air also works well if you're cleaning your keyboard as it can remove dust in the innermost part of your keyboard. Make sure that you spray at least three inches away from the keyboard to avoid damaging its finishes.
