    Hello, how would one clean their computer I have a Razer Blade Stealth (2018). I was in shop class and u=using it to research some things when a guy split the gasoline and flung drops of it all over my computer. What should i do other than use water and a paper towel?

    Yeah I had a feeling it might be a first, but no it was just a couple of drops on to the keyboard and lid i don't think any got under the keys before I started wiping it up, but i would still like to clean it. Also what should use for basic cleaning not only for the gas, but how should i clean the screen, keyboard the frame, maybe the speakers, and all the other things, possibly get rid of the smell of gas. I want to clean my computer because it has gotten a little dirty since I got it.

    Gas will evaporate on its own, but probably leave some little ring stains that you may or may not be able to scrub off. I would get a damp (not sopping wet) paper towel with a little bit of dish soap and lightly wipe it down (you don't want things to get drippy and go into the laptop). Dish soap will cut through any oil from the gas. Then wipe it dry. It goes without saying, but make sure the laptop is off and give it an hour or so to dry before you turn it back on, just in case.

    Something ammonia-based like Windex could work too, and would be evaporate quickly on its own.
