Hi everyone,

I have similar questions/concerns here. What I would like to also ask
relates to my understanding of Vermont Law and how schools must use only
approved "green" cleaners. We had a former director of operations who was a
stringent proponent of us only using (or even having in school) approved

Thus I am extremely concerned about whether the use of Clorox wipes, or a
similar product, is allowed.

Bottom line, it seems to me that computer devices that are handled multiple
times per day, such as in an elementary school, could be a significant
source of spreading germs.

We need to clean our devices and I would love some suggestions about the
products that we could use.  We need to clean keyboards, Chromebooks that
have keyboards but also have touch screens, and finally iPads.  What
products are anti-microbial but also won't damage touch screens.

All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
