Get a can of compressed air and tilt your laptop carefully to forty-five degrees in the direction of the nozzle. Don’t stick the tip of the nozzle too close to the crevices in the keys. Use short bursts of air to get the dirt out. You will be surprised to see the things flying out from underneath the keys. Read the safety instructions before you use the air can.

4. Wipe it off

Try this too:

USB Vacuum: Yes, there is such a nifty thing that will suck all the debris out of your laptop. And, it’s pretty cheap too.

Air blaster: Prefer air blasters over the can of compressed air as it contains toxic elements that are released into the air on use. This is a non-toxic and environmentally-friendly option. So, it’s fun to use.

Whatever you do, just don’t clean your laptop like her.
