Touchscreens:

Touchscreens can be effectively cleaned with diluted detergent or up to 70% isopropyl alcohol solution. Make sure you follow the cleaning procedure below to avoid damage to the touchscreen:

  • Clean the screen using a non-abrasive cloth and a diluted detergent solution, such as household soap and water. Do not apply any cleaning products directly to the screen and do not soak the cloth: wring it out before use.
  • Dry the screen with another soft cloth.
  • The screen can then be further cleaned by dampening a cloth with isopropyl alcohol solution, or using pre-packaged wipes, to wipe the screen. Do not apply any cleaning products directly to the screen and do not soak the cloth: wring it out before use.

Plastic & metal surfaces


We recommend cleaning plastic and metal surfaces of the POS or self checkout with soap, water and bleach solution. Note that bleach can damage clothing.
