We’ve received guidance from several of our partners on how to clean and sanitize printers, point of sale hardware, and other equipment to ensure a safe return to campus. It is recommended that you use a 70% alcohol solution on a clean rag. Start with the screen, then casework, and work your way down to the stand. We’ve been cautioned against using any solution over 70% alcohol, any solution with bleach, or ammonia, as these could etch the touchscreen or discolor the casework.
