How To Disinfect Your Smartphone

  1. Polish with a microfiber cloth 

Gently wipe the exterior of your phone with a clean microfiber cloth to get rid of smudges and crud. Although microfiber cloth is not technically a disinfectant, it is effective in removing germs and bacteria from the surface of your phone.    

  1. Disinfect your phone with wipes

Some may think that devices cannot be cleaned thoroughly with a microfiber cloth or feel unsafe if only using it to polish the phone – instead, you may use disinfectant wipes to sanitize your device. 

However, there are times when the wipe is excessively wet, you will have to wring it out first, then gently wipe down every surface of your phone while avoiding the ports.    

  1. Reach for a clean paper towel 

Despite most of the smartphones in the market today claiming they are water-resistant, it does not mean that it can be completely waterproof, as water-resistant here means that it is able to resist the penetration of water to some degree but not entirely. 

Hence, after cleaning your phone with disinfectant wipes, you will have to wipe away the leftover moisture from your device with a clean paper towel.
