How to clean your MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro




How to clean the outside of your MacBook


1. Shut down your computer and unplug the power adapter.

2. Use a damp, soft, lint-free cloth to clean the computer's exterior. You must avoid getting moisture in any openings.


TAKE NOTE: Do not spray liquid directly on the computer. Make sure not to use aerosol sprays, solvents, abrasives, or cleaners containing hydrogen peroxide that might damage the finish.


For MacBook (13-inch, Late 2009) and MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2010), the bottom case of these computers uses a soft nonslip material. Use a 3M Gray Microfiber or soft dye-free, lint-free cloth to clean the bottom case.




How to to clean the screen on your MacBook

1. Shut down the computer and unplug the power adapter.

2. Dampen a soft, lint-free cloth with water only, then use it to clean the computer's screen. For MacBook Pro models from 2016 and later with Touch Bar and Touch ID, clean the Touch Bar and Touch ID (power button) on these computers the same way you would clean the display. Shut down your Mac and unplug the power adapter. Dampen a soft, lint-free cloth with water only, then use it to clean the Touch Bar and Touch ID.
