A computer store will always try to sell you an expensive, brand name computer cleaner. But what exactly is in it? Nothing natural, you can be sure of that. The truth is, you can concoct a simple cleaning solution at home that will clean your computer equipment—hard drive, keyboard, printer, and everything else that gets dusty and grimy*—and at the same time make your office smell amazing. An extra bonus? This homemade cleaner is a great natural germ killer, because of the antibiotic properties of grapefruit seed extract.
All you need is a spray bottle (glass is always best) and a few simple ingredients.
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon GSE (grapefruit seed extract, sold in the bodycare department of most health food and supplement stores)
- 10 drops citrus essential oil (optional)
Shake it up, spray it on a chamois cloth, and give it a wipe!
* Note that this mixture should not be used on the surface of your screen.
