How to keep your gadgets clean while working from home

Posted by Sharannya Mukherji on


Now that our Work From Home Desk is our go-to place where we spend hours and hours, skipping from Zoom calls to back-breaking typing to maybe even a meal or two. Our table is a world of its own. So, keeping your sanctuary clean probably the best way to go. 

First things first, as always, declutter your space! Not only does it make the place good to look at but also helps our brains focus more and focus better. It’s true, if anything our brain loves order. This further helps us in processing information better and thereby making us more productive. Most importantly, remember to let your table breathe, there should be ample space on your desk. 

Disinfectant spray for stationaries

How to declutter?

Do away with unwanted stationery and objects and keep them in a separate bag, shelf or drawer. You’ll have to create this storage space accordingly. Enumerate what you use often and what you don’t, this will only make things more convenient for you. Invest in storage materials to hang on the walls or keep around the desk to minimize the number of things you keep on the desk. File holders for example can come in handy and you can hang them up and label them. Or maybe a small corner shelf for books you use often, in case of tight table space.


Cleaning our Gadgets

Now, let’s get to our gadgets. Our laptop, mobile phones, desktop are now our lifelines so it is imperative to disinfect them the right way. 

We are carrying a gadget on ourselves at all times, as shocking as that sounds, it’s true. Be it our bathroom, our kitchen or even that inevitable grocery run. So, naturally, it’s no surprise your gadgets pick up on bacteria and viruses very easily. And upon any contact with our hands, it has a very good chance of reaching our eyes nose and our mouths. The rest is history. 

As we now know COVID-19 has the tendency of surviving on different surfaces for varying lengths of time, and they can definitely last on your gadgets for hours. However, never fear, because a good clean with a disinfectant has proven to remove virus particles.

Before we embark on the epic journey of scrubbing our screens, one thing’s important to keep in mind, always refer to your manufacturer’s instructions before anyone else’s. If they have provided a set of instructions to clean, then follow them to the T.  And never, we repeat NEVER, spray directly onto them. Be sure to disconnect or better yet, switch off whatever it is you’re about to clean. 

Disinfectant spray for laptops

For Laptop - Switch off your device and blow out any visible crumbs or pieces using compressed air. Be sure to check the keyboard, the speaker, the ports and any place where tiny things might get lodged. Take a microfiber cloth and dampen it (do not wet it) with Koparo’s Gadget Disinfectant Spray. Now, gently wipe your screen to remove any fingerprints or smudges.

For Mobile - We touch our mobile phones the most, on average, in a day. It comes in contact with our hands and face the most. So naturally it becomes a breeding ground for many scary bacteria such as E. Coli and Staphylococcus aureus which is a major cause of infections ranging from skin and soft tissue infections to endocarditis and even influenza. 

  • Unplug your phone/Switch off power
  • Remove the cover. You can clean the cover separately. 
  • Spray a bit of Koparo’s Gadget Disinfectant Spray onto a Microfiber cloth till its slightly damp 
  • Gently wipe up and down the screen and then the back. Avoid using the wet cloth around the ports of your phone.
  • Let it dry for 5 minutes 
  • Wipe away any excess moisture with a dry part of your cloth

For Earphones -  Remove the rubber ends of your earphones first and keep them aside. Use a small microfiber cloth dampened with the gadget disinfectant spray to wipe down the cords. Now using a dampened cotton swab, clean out the part where the rubber ends are supposed to be. Make tiny circular motions with the swab. Use the swab to clean the rubber ends separately. 

Some things to be cautious about -

  • Avoid getting disinfectant spray into any openings or ports, it can spoil them.
  • Be sure to wash your hands before you start cleaning your gadgets in order to avoid extra contamination. Paper towels can be very abrasive, so it is preferable to use microfiber cloth for this purpose.
  • Also, ensure you don’t rub or wipe too much as this can possibly damage the product and spoil the touch screen.

Be sure to clean your WFH Desk once a week by removing all objects and giving it a nice wipe with a cloth and Koparo’s All-Purpose Spray. The spray is super versatile and is tough on germs but soft on all surfaces, be it wooden or metallic. Let the work commence!

Make your WFH desk work for you!
