3 Easy Ways To Clean Electrical Switches

Typically, we all love to live in a home which is squeaky clean. Like every normal person, we all give a deep daily, weekly and monthly cleaning to our home, getting rid of any dust that might accumulate on any part of our home. Often, we forget about cleaning the basic things such as electrical switches. Electrical switches should be cleaned regularly to avoid dust and stains on them, but it’s not always as easy as it seems. Sometimes, the stains are stubborn enough with which you can’t get rid easily. Moreover, being an electrical appliance, it is extremely important for you to take extreme safety parameters before you clean your electrical switches.

Keeping your safety and cleanliness both in mind, we have penned down 3 ways of cleaning electrical switchboards easily.

NOTE – Try not to put much liquid on your switchboards as it can catch fire. Better to turn off the main supply system before starting any of the process mentioned below:


1. Bring On The Power Of Baking Soda

If we have to pick one all-rounder stuff for our home, undoubtedly, we will pick baking soda. Baking soda has an enormous number of uses other than your usual baking. Mix a heaping spoon of baking soda along with lemon. Cut a lemon into half and dip its half part on baking soda. Now scrub this lemon on a switchboard to get amazing results.

The granules of baking soda emulsify the oil and stain from the surface of your electrical boards whereas vinegar will clean the germs lying on it.

2. Use Your Regular Nail Remover

Probably, this is the easiest way to clean your switchboards. Your nail polish remover is basically a complex chemical known as acetone that has the properties to remove stains from any surface. Use it as casually as you use it on your nails and you will get great results.

3. Use Your Toothpaste

Your regular white toothpaste has ingredients like sodium bicarbonate present in it which is great for whitening or cleaning any stubborn stains. Use any old toothbrush for this purpose to scrub off the surface of your switchboard to make them clean.

A person has to be very careful while cleaning the switchboards. It’s better to turn off your main supply system while cleaning to ensure electrical safety. Try not to spray liquid on the surface of the switch to avoid any electric hazard. Switches can lead to fire or can catch shock if not handled properly.

Always ensure installing a switchboard that is shock retardant meeting the international safety standards like Finolex Switchboards. Finolex Premium Plus switches are already dust repellent and are completely safe so as to avoid any electric havoc.
