How do I clean my phone?
There is no magic formula for cleaning and disinfection, but there is a series of steps and recommendations if you want to do it right and avoid damaging your mobile device.
- Disinfect the surface where you will place the Smartphone:
This step is essential because it is useless to clean your cell phone properly, if where you place it it is infected with dust, viruses and bacteria. Proceed first to disinfect the place of support and then place your phone.
- Wash your hands or wear gloves:
Make sure your hands are clean, or you will simply re-contaminate your device. For greater security you can use gloves throughout the process.
- Remove any protector or protective cover:
Remember that we must clean our Smartphone thoroughly, for proper disinfection we must remove any protector or cover and also disinfect it to eliminate covid-19 and other viruses and bacteria that are housed in those small places.
- Use a disinfectant spray;
It is advisable to use a spray product because it is easy to evaporate, which makes it ideal for a good cleaning and disinfection of your Smartphone without causing damage. You can use 70% isopropyl alcohol or our Spray Extreme Sanitizer that is specially designed to combine the maximum technology in disinfection and that is used at industrial levels, without damaging your equipment or being toxic to your health.
- Turn off your Smartphone before starting:
For greater security you can turn off for a few minutes while you do the cleaning and disinfection process of your device.
- Apply the spray to each surface of your Smartphone:
Then with a soft wipe clean the screen and the entire phone carefully and without using force. Remember to avoid inserting both the spray and the wipe into the ports or openings of your phone such as the headphone jack or the headphone jack. Do the same step for your protective case.
- Wait for all the spray you applied to evaporate from your phone and when it is really dry, put the protective case back on, and you’re done.
If you follow each of these steps, you are guaranteed a really clean phone free of viruses and bacteria. We especially recommend using our extreme sanitizer spray, because it is specially designed not to damage your electronic devices.
