Did you know that your smartphone is probably dirtier than a toilet seat? We’re going tell you why and give you some tips to easily clean your phone with household products.
It’s estimated that the average cellphone is 7 times dirtier than your toilet at home. The reason is that more and more people are taking their phones everywhere with them. Whether you take it into the bathroom, use it while cooking, or exercise with it, your phone is always coming into contact with dirt and germs.
But don’t worry, here’s a helpful guide on how you can clean your phone. To do this you’ll need:
- Microfibre cloth
- Isopropyl rubbing alcohol
- Distilled Water
- Cleaning gloves
- A spray bottle (for waterproof phones only)
For Waterproof & Water Resistant Phones
Top-of-the-range phones like the iPhone XR, Samsung Galaxy S10, and Huawei P30 are often waterproof or water resistant. If you’re not sure that your phone falls into this category we’d suggest you try looking on Google first. Here’s how to clean your waterproof or water resistant device.
Then start by mixing some rubbing alcohol with distilled water inside a spray bottle to make a solution. Remember to wear gloves.
Spray the outside of your phone evenly with the solution. Wipe the phone clean using the earbuds. Once the phone is dry give it a wipe with the microfibre cloth.
For Non-Waterproof Phones
Make a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water in a cup or bowl. Don’t use a spray bottle at all.
Then carefully dip the earbud into the solution and gently clean the outside of your phone. Once the phone is dry give it a wipe with the microfibre cloth.
