Cleaning our Classroom iPad

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2017)

Our new iPads are getting grimy, gross, and germed up from all of the little fingers that have been exploring them, so here is the plan to keep them clean, finger print and germ free…..


I will be getting you a green microfiber cloth in the next week.  This will be your cloth to clean your set of ipads.  Please read the following note from Apple about cleaning iPads.  

To clean iPad, unplug all cables and turn off iPad (press and hold the Sleep/Wake button, and then slide the onscreen slider). Use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPad. iPad has an oleophobic coating on the screen; simply wipe iPad’s screen with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove oil left by your hands. The ability of this coating to repel oil will diminish over time with normal usage, and rubbing the screen with an abrasive material will further diminish its effect and may scratch your screen.

If you need to lightly dampen the cloth, that is fine, but only with water and only lightly.  We will come up with a system to periodically launder the cloths.
