Four Ways to Remove Dust From Your Laptop | One PC Panda

If you’re like me, you probably have a laptop that’s been sitting on your desk or in your backpack for several months or years. The little holes in the laptop where the air comes out are all dusty, and it’s starting to get annoying when I put my earbuds in and feel tiny particles of dust stuck on my earbuds when I take them out. Luckily, there are some easy ways to remove the dust from your laptop and keep it clean!

Use an air compressor

Compressed air is not just for spraying dust bunnies out from under your desk. You can use it to remove dust from your laptop, too. To do so, simply point an air compressor at your laptop and let it blast that dust away! Make sure you don’t use a gun-style air compressor, as you might damage components inside your laptop with too much pressure. Instead, opt for a mini one designed for cleaning electronics (although they will cost you). Remember to protect your eyes when working with compressed air; never aim it directly in front of or behind you. Wearing safety goggles is also recommended.

Use a toothbrush

Using a toothbrush can help you clean out all those nooks and crannies, as well as helping you get a firm grip on any stubborn spots. The trick is not to press too hard and keep it gentle so you don’t scratch your laptop—but don’t let that stop you.

Use a vacuum

Your laptop can pick up dirt and other debris over time, particularly in hard-to-reach places like its vents. Using a vacuum cleaner is a simple solution for removing dirt from your laptop. Just plug it into an available outlet and get to work! Just be sure not to use an overly powerful vacuum—it could damage your computer’s internal components. Additionally, avoid using one that’s too small; you won’t be able to get into hard-to-reach areas that way.

Use a Cleaning Gel (Slime)

One great way to remove dust from your laptop is with a cleaning gel. These gels are very effective in cleaning out even some of those hard-to-reach areas. They also leave no residue behind, so you don’t have to worry about your laptop feeling greasy or leaving a mess on your clothing when you open it up later. One quick tip: Be sure not to apply too much pressure if you use one of these gels, or it could damage your laptop.


While we all hate dealing with a dusty laptop, you don’t have to live with it. One of these four cleaning options should help you get your notebook running smoothly again! If there are any other methods that work well for you, let us know in the comments!
