If you have purchased a second-hand laptop, or you simply like to keep your current laptop as clean as possible, then you'll probably want to clean the trackpad. Because this part of the computer is constantly being touched by fingers, it's a good idea to disinfect it first. The good news is that cleaning the trackpad can be completed in a minute or two.
1). Wipe the trackpad gently with a disinfectant wipe. Make sure you cover all exposed areas of the trackpad. One coating is good. You don't want the trackpad to become too wet with disinfectant.
2). Wipe down the trackpad with a microfiber cloth where you applied the disinfectant. A microfiber cloth is best because it isn't rough and won't damage your trackpad.
3). Continue wiping down the trackpad with the microfiber cloth until the trackpad is completely dry.
