Cleaning Instructions

  1. Prepare yourself for cleaning a. Wash your hands prior to cleaning Oracle-specific hardware b. Recommended use of eye protection and protective latex gloves (or nitrile gloves if you are latex-sensitive)

  2. Prepare the device for cleaning a. Safely conduct a controlled power down of the device b. Ensure the device is on a stable and secure surface and any external peripherals are disconnected

  3. Begin cleaning the device a. Avoid highly concentrated alcohol (greater than 70%), non-diluted bleach or ammonia cleaners as they may cause damage to the device surfaces b. Spray cleaner onto a wipe or cloth. Then with pre-moistened wipes, a sprayed cloth or dampened cloth with the excess moisture squeezed off, begin removing contaminants from the device. c. Do not spray chemicals directly on the device and do not get liquids inside the device. d. Begin with the critical surface (i.e. touchscreen) and move to less critical surfaces (i.e. stand) to avoid moving dirt and debris from the one part of the device to another. e. When cleaning a display screen or control panel, carefully wipe in one direction, moving from the top of the display to the bottom. After cleaning use glass cleaner sprayed onto a clean rag to remove any streaking from the display

  4. After cleaning the device a. Once all debris and contaminants are removed, allow the device to dry before restoring power, connecting peripherals and beginning operation.
