Cleaning Dos

Use an alcohol-based cleaner with at least 70% concentration.

Spray cleaner onto a clean soft cloth and use it to wipe the machine.

Wipe surfaces gently to avoid cracking screens or damaging buttons. 

Consider getting a touchscreen stylus for printer touch screens to reduce touching

Cleaning Don'ts

 Never attempt to clean the original glass or scanning area with alcohol 

 Do not use ammonia-based or chlorine-based cleaners.

 Do not apply liquids directly to devices.

 Do not over-saturate the cleaning cloth. Dripping/soaking cloths can damage your machine.

Don't use abrasive cleaners or cleaning materials (scrub brushes, scouring pads etc.)
