2. Wipe screen with the terry cloth side of the cleaning cloth > 15s

3. Wipe screen with the microfiber side of the cleaning cloth > 15s 4. Wipe down keyboard and trackpad (or mouse) with the cleaning wipes > 20s


You should perform the one minute clean at least twice a week--three times a week if you eat lunch at your workspace. Apartment Therapy also has a more extensive cleaning process that we recommend you try at least once a month.
