I have all 3 tools from Ego. It was great using them. However, after a long busy time without working on my yard myself, they are now all covered in cobweb, bird poop, and dust, since I put them all under my shed outdoor for very long (yes even under shed...).

So now I want to clean them, get them back to working state, and store them in garage. What's the best way to clean them? Is it a problem cleaning them using water and everything?

In addition to what Paul stated from above, I would not recommend using any disinfecting wipes on your tools (see the recommendation below from the blower manual):



And of course, make sure all the batteries have been removed from your tools prior to cleaning.  That said; I would use a brush to get the cobwebs off of your tools, then wipe the trimmer & blower with a damp rag, not wet.  As for the mower, the manual stated that you should not use water to clean it:
