Cleaning DECK

Use a soft cloth or dusting attachment of a vacuum
cleaner to remove dust from the ventilation holes on
the back sides and bottom of the cabinet.
Plastic surfaces are easily scratched and can be
marred by alcohol and various solvents.
Avoid excessive use of oil-based furniture polishes
since the materials used in the cabinet will
accumulate more dust. We recommend using a
non-abrasive, antistatic cleaner and polisher.
