So you've just invested in a brand new Magnavox TV, complete with a shiny new remote control, and you want to make sure that you take care of the equipment so that you aren't forced to wait, sans TV, because your remote broke and you had to order a Magnavox remote control replacement. Most people are aware of the obvious tips to keep electronics safe: try not to spill water on the remote, keep it away from any pets (and the couch cushions too, for that matter), and keep it at a safe distance just in case your sports team loses and you feel the urge to throw something across the room.
But did you know that it's also important to clean your remote control regularly in order to keep dirt, dust, and the occasional cracker crumb from falling in between the buttons? It's actually pretty easy to keep your remote clean, and it will ensure that you don't have to order a Magnavox remote control replacement until it's absolutely necessary:
Start with getting the crumbs and tiny dust bunnies out from between the buttons as best as possible. A good way to do this is by using a (dry) toothbrush.
If you notice a lot of little crumbs falling under the outside cover and if you happen to feel comfortable with electronics, try taking off the plastic cover gently and only after you've removed the batteries.
Once all the crumbs and bits of dirt are brushed off, reassemble the remote if necessary and wipe down the surface -- usually it's best to use a damp cloth with some antibacterial cleaning solution, or just an antibacterial wipe, and make sure to squeeze out the extra water before wiping down the remote. Remote controls can collect a lot of bacteria, so it's important to do this regularly.
Finish by wiping down the remote with a dry cloth -- and most importantly, make sure to put the batteries back in!
Keeping your TV remote clean won't just ensure a long lifespan for the device, but it will also help keep you, and your family, as healthy as possible. And if a quick cleaning routine isn't enough to un-stick all of the buttons, Remotes.com is just a click away -- you can have a brand new Magnavox remote control replacement in no time at all.
