Office phones are a high germ zone, with over 25,000 germs per square inch. Oh, and scientist have estimated that workers are exposed to more microbes via keyboards and phones than from the average toilet seat. The AF Phone-Clene Wipes, available in tubs of 100, contain strong bactericide and can also be used to clean your smart phone.

Do the wipe thing

Yes, it looks like a novelty gift item you'd give a colleague for Kris Kindle but the battery-powered Henry desk vacuum does its job admirably. A miniature version of the Henry Hoover, it picks up desk crumbs and dust, is easy to clean and empty and has a crevice tool for hard-to-reach areas.

Suck it up with vacuum

While you may not touch your computer screen as often as other items on your desk, smeared screens will happen. Ecomoist Natural Screen Cleaner comes with a microfibre cloth and can be used for disk cleaning as well as monitors. It's biodegradable, hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and you can reuse the bottles many times over if you buy refills.

Have some air time

Bits of grated cheese, scone crumbs, dead skin - there is a lot of grimness lurking in most people's keyboards. An air duster is one of the best ways to blast them out and the Q-Connect HFC-Free Computer Air Duster, which can also be used on cameras, won't affect the ozone layer. It comes with an extension tube.
