COMPUTER:

My method of cleaning (reformatting the hard drive of the PC :) is a little extreme for most people, but there are less radical solutions to refresh your PC and boost performance.

There are two components to cleaning:

1. Physical - Actually physically removing the dust, grime, pet hair etc... from inside the PC. (The same Micro Brushes which attach to a vacuum cleaner work wonder on both PC and Sewing machine!)

2. Software - Cleaning out all the "crud" that accumulates on your hard drive.

Tekzilla has a great podcast on cleaning both the hardware and the hardrive.

They use two of my favorite FREE softwares:

CCleaner

ccleaner

and WinDir Stat

windir

Also remember to clean your
SEWING MACHINE!

MiniVac

 

There are wonderful videos on YouTube to refresh your machine cleaning skills.

Sara from Heirlooms Creations' does a great job on showing the basic cleaning & maintenance on different BERNINA machines.

Here are two links:

CB Hook

and here is a link to Heirloom Creations YouTube Channel

For a more "in depth" tutorial on physically cleaning out a PC, PC World Magazine has a good online article:
