Device Cleaning Instructions

Both manufacturers recommend using pre-saturated wipes to avoid cleaning solutions over saturating or “pooling” on the device or printer. Never pour or spray cleaning agents directly on any surface of these products. For more detailed cleaning instructions, please reference the guides above.
