How to clean the outside of your cell phone easily and safely

In this way you can clean the outside of your cell phone  without suffering any damage in the process.


Nowadays it is almost impossible to live without having a mobile phone  in our hands. This device has become indispensable in our day to day life.

However, several studies have concluded that it is one of the objects that contains the most bacteria, so much so that you can find more pathogenic microorganisms on your phone than in your bathroom.

On the other hand, the cell phone is always exposed daily to a large number of external contaminants such as dust, dirt and liquids. These are normally stored on the screen and charging or headphone connector, so it is normal to end up with a dirty device without realizing it.

In this case, the best we can do is perform a little maintenance, which we will teach you in a few simple steps.

Steps to externally clean your cell phone

It is very important that you have 70% pure isopropyl alcohol, since this prevents your cell phone from suffering any type of damage, since it evaporates quickly and does not conduct. If you don’t have any, you can also use a special screen or phone cleaner .

  1. The first thing is to have clean your hands and the space where you will clean the device .
  2. Remove the case or protector from your phone and turn it off.
  3. On a microfiber cloth spray, or pour, some isopropyl alcohol. This liquid should never be sprayed directly on the cell phone .
  4. Gently run the cloth over the screen and the rest of the phone, but without inserting it into any of the ports.
  5. For the camera it is advisable to use a special cloth for lenses to avoid scratches.
  6. Once the alcohol has evaporated, use another completely dry cloth all over the phone . This can be skimmed through the ports to clean the dust from them, but it is recommended to use special cleaners for these types of spaces.

The cover can be cleaned with soap and water, if it is made of plastic, or with a little isopropyl alcohol on a cloth if it has fabric parts. Once it’s completely dry, place it back on the device .
