Outside of those, we come across touch screens and touchpads in our world multiple times a day. Sure, your first thought goes to your phones – practically attached to us these days – but consider the other places we interact with touch screens: computers, coffee makers, auto navigation & interface, atm screens, elevator indicators, office copier, restaurant table interface, in-flight entertainment, security panels, grocery checkouts, ticket machines, ATMs, interactive public signage, retail checkouts. Suffice it to say, we interact with touchscreens EVERYWHERE.
In these unsettling times, we start to realize the things we’ve overlooked – like our extensive use of touchscreens and our lack of cleaning those touchscreens. Our partner, Crestron, has issued a simple summary of how to disinfect their product which applies to just about any touch panel. The key parts are using a microfiber cloth and applying a small amount of cleaner onto the cloth – don’t spray directly onto the screen.
