Clean with the correct disinfection method! Official announcement of Nintendo Switch care

正しい消毒方法で清潔に!Nintendo Switchのお手入れについて公式が発表

Today, we live in a coronary disaster. It has become commonplace to wear a mask well, avoid dense air, and wash your hands.
Although we can wash our hands thoroughly, we must be careful about disinfecting items that we use daily that are difficult to wash with water, such as smartphones and game consoles.
We have heard that using too strong an alcohol-based disinfectant can cause the screen of a smartphone to crack or the plastic parts to lift off, so we need to be careful about how we take care of these items.
Many people want to know how to properly disinfect their Nintendo Switch, which is one of the most important items to disinfect since many children touch it, and Nintendo has released the official instructions for taking care of it!

Take good care of it the right way!

About the care of your device

Nintendo has released the official Nintendo Switch care instructions.
Before cleaning, be sure to turn off the power and disconnect the cables before cleaning the Switch!

In case of dirt, etc.

If dirt or grime gets on the main unit or Joy-Con, wipe it gently with a soft, clean cloth that has been wetted with water and wrung out tightly.
If there is too much water, it may get inside the Joy-Con and cause it to malfunction, so be sure to wring it out thoroughly. A hard cloth may scratch the inside of the unit, so a soft cloth should be used.
Organic solvents such as thinner and benzene should not be used.

When disinfecting

In this day and age, you will want to disinfect your Nintendo Switch, but there are certain things you are allowed to use for disinfection.
To disinfect, use a commercially available disinfectant with a concentration of 70% alcohol, lightly moisten a soft cloth, and gently wipe the Switch.
It is important to note that disinfectants or solutions other than alcohol should not be used.
Also, do not use alcohol that is not intended for disinfection, such as alcohol for fuel, as it may damage the equipment.
If disinfectant solution is poured or soaked directly on the equipment, water contained in the disinfectant solution may enter the equipment and cause it to malfunction, so be careful not to use excessive amounts of disinfectant solution.
Also, after disinfection, make sure the equipment is completely dry before turning it on. Use of the equipment under non-drying conditions may result in equipment malfunction.

If you fail to follow these instructions and your equipment malfunctions, you may be charged for repairs.
