So I Literally forgot that ethyl alcohol is VERY bad at cleaning laptops but its too late since I already cleaned it with that kind of alcohol but the good thing is that I only cleaned that outside of the laptop (Except Screen) like the keyboards, edges of the keys, touchpad, the 2 flat surface between the touchpad (The right one has stickers with it like Nvidia, Core i5, etc.) Is it ok because when i used it, its not purely cleaned like it didnt make reflections or shiny things just a small alcohol then it evaporated quickly. except for the edges of the keys it did shine but i tested it and it still works lol but im afraid about whats going to happen (Testing: `1234567890-=/*-+987456+

Used only once it should not have done any harm, just don't use it again for that purpose.

Just use a dry, clean microfibre cloth in future.

For the screen, buy a quality screen-cleaning fluid/spray, some cheap ones just smear the screen and you get nowhere fast.

To avoid risk of the cleaner fluid seeping through the bottom-edge of the screen bezel, spray it on to the supplied cloth instead of spraying directly on to the screen.
