The items you use every day -- like remote controls and your computer keyboard and mouse -- should be cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis. But when it comes to electronic items, you can't exactly toss them into the dishwasher to get them sparkling clean. Instead, use a barely damp microfiber towel. The thousands of tightly knit fibers in microfiber towels grip onto dirt, grime and bacteria using just water. When the towel is barely damp, you're protecting the electronic components from getting damaged.
