How often do you clean your phone? If the answer is “not often,” then you’re not alone. Most people don’t think about cleaning their phone until it’s too late. This can lead to a build-up of bacteria and other unsightly things. In this blog post, we will discuss some simple ways that you can clean your phone using household items. Let’s get started!
Distilled water and white vinegar
Distilled water and white vinegar can be used to clean your phone. Just mix equal parts of each in a bowl and use a microfiber cloth to wipe down your phone. This will remove any dirt or grime that may be on your phone. If you have a case for your phone, make sure to clean that as well. You can use the same solution of distilled water and white vinegar to clean your phone case. Just make sure to rinse it off with water afterwards.
Cotton swabs and microfiber cloths
Cotton swabs and microfiber cloths are great for getting into small spaces and removing dirt and dust. White vinegar is a natural disinfectant that can kill bacteria. Simply add equal parts water and vinegar to a bowl and dip your cotton swab or microfiber cloth into the solution. Gently wipe down your phone, being careful not to get any water into the charging port or other openings. Allow the phone to air dry before using it again.
Mild soap and water solution
You can also use a mild soap and water solution to clean your phone. Simply mix a small amount of dish soap with warm water and dampen your microfiber cloth or cotton swab. Gently wipe down your phone, being careful not to get any water into the charging port or other openings. Rinse the cloth or cotton swab in clean water and gently wipe down your phone again. Allow the phone to air dry before using it again.
Q-tips are great for getting into those hard-to-reach places on your phone, like the speaker grills and camera lens. Just use a little bit of rubbing alcohol on the Q-tip and gently wipe away any dirt or debris. Microfiber cloths are also great for cleaning your phone screen. They won’t scratch the surface and they pick up dust and fingerprints like a charm. Just give your screen a good wipe down and you’re good to go.
Cleaning your phone regularly will help extend its lifespan and keep it looking its best. By using household items, you can save money and keep your phone clean and bacteria-free.
