Cleaning & Disinfecting Sphero Products

For littleBits, make sure they are disconnected from the power source and wipe down with a disinfecting wipe, allow to dry and store back in their cases. We don’t recommend a spray for littleBits as too much liquid could get into the tiny openings/connections.

Check out our step-by-step guide for how to clean and properly disinfect Sphero robots and littleBits when learning from home.
