Whether you actually time your technology cleaning with the first blooms of spring or not, we’re interested in hearing all about your routines for keeping your machines clean and organized both inside and out.

Traditionally spring cleaning was a time to throw open the windows and set to work scrubbing the grime from the fireplaces and coal-burning stoves off the walls. Although very few of us need to worry about wiping the coal soot off our smart phones, there’s still a host of things we all do to clean, organize, and maintain our electronic devices. Whether you have a tip for keeping your operating system disk tidy and optimized or keeping the finger prints off your tablet’s screen, we want to hear all about your technology cleaning routines!

Sound off in the comments with your tips and tricks; don’t forget to check back on Friday for the What You Said roundup.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
