Cleaning and Disinfecting Mira Connect Touchscreens

 In Blog

Mira Connect has introduced a screen cleaning mode that makes it easy to clean an disinfect the Mira Connect touchscreen without concern for accidently pressing buttons.

To enter the screen cleaning mode, press and hold Mira Connect’s clock for 5 seconds.

After 5 seconds have elapsed of pressing the clock, a screen cleaning graphic will appear with a dark background and a 20-second count-down timer showing the remaining time until the Mira Connect user interface is restored.

If you don’t see the clock due to a password prompt on Mira Connect, either enter the password to get access to the clock, or proceed directly with cleaning the screen with the password prompt visible.

If you need more time to clean the screen, start the process again.

Cleaning Instructions

Please read the following instructions on properly cleaning and disinfecting Mira Connect touchscreens without damaging the devices.

To clean and disinfect your Mira Connect touchscreen, please follow these steps:

  1. Do enter the screen cleaning mode described above or power off your Mira Connect, if possible, before cleaning.
  2. Do use a clean, dry, non-abrasive cloth to gently remove any loose dust, dirt, and smudges.
  3. For further cleaning of tough smudges, you may slightly-dampen a small section of the cloth with clean water or use a commercially-available, pre-moistened wipe made for cleaning electronics. Buff the screen with a dry section of the cloth. This step helps to remove dirt, impurities, and most germs from the surface but does not necessarily kill all germs.
  4. To disinfect the screen (i.e. kill germs on the touchscreen), follow up by wiping the screen with either:
    • a second clean, dry, non-abrasive cloth slightly dampened with a CDC-recommended disinfecting solution (i.e. a bleach solution)
      OR
    • a commercially-available, pre-moistened disinfecting wipe (such as a Lysol wipe).

    With both options, allow the touchscreen to air dry.

    Always follow the manufacturers’ guidelines on properly using their products.

To protect your touchscreen, here is the list of treatments to avoid:

  • Do not immerse the touchscreen in any liquids.
  • Do not pour or spray any liquids directly onto the touchscreen, as drips may breach the interior of the tablet. For the same reason, do not use cloths dripping with liquid – wring them out first.
  • Do not use any cleaning agents that are labeled as corrosive or abrasive to glass or plastic. This includes solvents, acids, ammonia, and any cleaning agents containing an abrasive.
  • Do not clean the touchscreen using isopropyl (i.e. rubbing) alcohol that has a concentration of alcohol greater than 70%.
  • Do not use abrasive pads, scrubbing sponges, or steel wool to clean your touchscreen.
  • Do not use razor blades to remove stuck-on debris from your screen.
