Nobody likes to lose his dear laptop because of neglect especially if it was valuable and fancy one. For this reason, i’m going to give you tips on how to clean your laptop safely with simple materials.
follow the following set of guidance in order to clean your laptop:

Clean the Surfaces:

Rub the case, screen, and tops of the keys softly with a microfiber cloth. , also you can put a small amount of alcohol on the cloth and wipe the computer’s surfaces To sanitize it.

Clean the Keyboard:

To get dust, crumbs and other dirt out of the keyboard, Clean in between the keys and in any cracks with cotton swabs dipped in the rubbing alcohol.

use compressed air . also you can blow with your mouth.
In case you spill something on the keyboard, or there is something stuck under the keys, you can remove the keys for a deeper clean then clean the exposed area with the cloth and alcohol.

Clean the Vents:

Dust is the enemy number one to ports and vents in your laptop. You have to clean it out before everything gets completely blocked which will cause damage from overheating.
Use the compressed air here, blow it into the ports and vents of your laptop.

Note: You can use these guidances with desktop computers as well.

Finally, if you are obsessed with cleaning, you can wash your laptop in the washing machine but if that will hurts its feelings, you can give it a bath. :)
