Heloise Hints


Sticky, Gummy Video Game or Cell Phone Equipment

video gamesYour children’s must-have tech devices do get a messy workout with all those dirty, sticky fingers. So here’s the quickest way to get off the gunk:

TO CLEAN: The best way for children to clean a cell phone is by using an alcohol based wet wipe, but not on the screen. This at least will remove the surface gunk. For gaming equipment, unplug first and wipe down with a microfiber cloth. For the controllers, use a bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab to clean.
TO SAVE: Dust the devices weekly and try to keep soft drinks and food away from them. But if water or soda gets into any of these pieces of equipment or they are dropped, make certain the children let you know, so they can be dealt with ASAP!
