    7. AGAIN, be careful with water around your electronics, especially their screens.

    8. Literally vacuum the tops of your books.

    9. Use a dusting spray to wipe down all of your wood furniture, like your bookshelves and your desk.

    11. Clean your windows and the glass in any picture frames you have hanging on the walls.

    12. Scrub out stains in your office chair using dish soap and hydrogen peroxide.

    13. If you have one of these chair mats, make sure to at least sweep it, if not wipe it down with a damp cloth.
