We rely on electronic gadgets for a lot of our daily tasks. It only makes sense to take care of them to extend their lives and maintain a high level of performance. Cleaning should be part of basic maintenance procedures. We don’t need to go to a shop for this. There are plenty of cleaning products that we can pick up at stores to get the job done. We can even create our own to save money and be certain of the ingredients that we use. It isn’t difficult at all. Everything you need can already be found at home. Here’s how to clean electronics using DIY solutions:

White Vinegar and Water

For general purpose cleaning, just mix a bit of white vinegar in water. This solution should prove adequate when wiping off dirt from plastic surfaces like phone cases, laptop shells, keyboards, mice, printers, and the like. Dip a fresh cotton ball into the diluted vinegar and work your way across every inch of the device. You may also use a soft clean cloth to do this for larger surfaces. Just be sure to squeeze out excess liquid so that it doesn’t drip on the floor. One problem with this solution is that some people don’t like the strong smell of vinegar. The good news is that there’s a readily available alternative.

Isopropyl Alcohol and Distilled Water

If you are not fond of spraying vinegar all over your home office, then just pick up a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and dilute it in distilled water. This alcohol is known to be an effective disinfectant so it is perfect for cleaning electronic devices. Mix them in a 1:25 ratio to be safe. If you are attempting to wipe down a screen, it is crucial to use distilled water instead of tap water. The latter tends to contain a significant amount of minerals that could leave unsightly residues on the screen surface. Don’t forget to turn the device off before proceeding to prevent dangerous electric shorts.

If you are worried about the effect of chemicals on the environment today, one of the ways you can help improve it is through making your own dish washing soap. It takes little time and effort to make your own formula that results in a liquid that is more gentle to human skin and easier on the wallet as well.

How to Make Homemade Dish Soap

BoraxInterested? If so, the next time you go to the grocery store, add three extra ingredients to your cart that you can use as materials to make dish soap that cuts through grease and does a good job of cleaning. To make your own dish washing soap, you’ll need unscented and undyed bar soap along with borax, essential oil, a saucepan, a spoon and washing soda.

After you have assembled all of the essential materials, the steps to make homemade dish washing soap are simple. Start with using a cheese grater to shave down bar soap into flakes. Any unscented variety will work. Next, combine 1 tablespoon of grated soap with 1 tablespoon of borax in a bowl. Check to ensure that you have purchased borax and not boric acid as they are not the same item.

By making your own dish soap, you will avoid using sodium laurel sulfate, which is an irritant for some people. Add 1 tablespoon of washing soda or sodium carbonate, if you think you will miss the suds that laurel sulfate produces.

When you have assembled the mixture, heat 1-3/4 cups of water until boiling and then stir in the assembled ingredients until the soap melts and the powders dissolve. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool for several hours, stirring the liquid periodically to keep it from congealing.

Afterwards, transfer the homemade dish washing liquid into a quart bottle, adding 14 to 20 drops of essential oil while doing so. The addition of oil, plus its scent, makes doing dishes a sensory experience. Adding citrus oils can especially improve the effectiveness of your homemade blend, making it better able to cut through grease accumulations to make your dishes sparkling clean.
