Whether working from home or in the office, these cleaning tips can help you keep your workspace organized.
The desk in your office can be a realm of productivity, but it can also be a haven for germs. A study from the University of Arizona found the average desk can have up to 400 times more germs than a toilet seat. That’s why it’s so important to clean your workspace regularly.
Whether working from home or in the office, these cleaning tips can help you keep your workspace spic and span.
Declutter your desk.
- Shred documents you no longer need.
- Use in-drawer dividers to separate paperwork by category and date.
- Bundle and label your electronic cords, or go wireless with your keyboard and mouse.
- Add shelves to remove items from your desk.
Clean your computer.
Before cleaning a laptop keyboard, always make sure it is powered down and unplugged. Use an alcohol wipe with excess moisture removed to eliminate grime from keys. Allow your keyboard to air dry before using it again.
Sanitize your phone.
Unplug your phone before you start, and wipe down all the surfaces, from the ear and mouthpieces to the buttons. If you can, clean the phone often and only use it with clean hands to help ensure it is germ-free.
