How to Safely Sanitize Your Smart Phone

March 18, 2020

In response to recent events, we highly recommend taking the time to frequently and safely sanitize your smart phone. BBC News released this informative video with several ways to sanitize your smart phone without damaging it.

Before beginning any of the following methods of cleaning your phone, be sure to unplug, turn it off, and remove any protective cases or covers if you use one. For any of these methods, take care to avoid getting any water or other liquids in the ports. Remember to also sanitize your protective case or cover.

  1. Soap and water: Dampen a microfiber cloth and household soap and wipe the surfaces. Use a dry microfiber cloth to remove all traces of moisture;
  2. Use 70% isopropyl alcohol wipes: Simply wipe the screen, back, and all edges. These wipes are available for purchase at most pharmacies and electronics stores;
  3. UV Sanitizing Device: Anything that fits inside the device can be sanitized, but please follow the manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here is an option that is built for larger devices.

Take care!
