Say “Goodbye” to Germs

A phone is a personal item, yet many studies have found that the average cell phone carries as much bacteria as a public doorknob. We thought it might be a good idea to show how you can disinfect your phone now that it’s time for some fall cleaning.

1. Turn off your phone and remove the protective case (if you use one).
2. Dip a cotton swab in diluted rubbing alcohol and gently rub it over your phone’s buttons and keypad. Be careful not to get any rubbing alcohol in the phone or under the keyboard.*
3. Dampen a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and go over any other plastic parts.
4. Dip a cotton swab in water and wipe the camera lens with a swirling motion. Dry immediately.
5. Dampen a microfiber cloth with water and wipe down the front screen.
6. Give your phone a few minutes to dry and clean the phone case.
7. Snap the case back on and cross cleaning your phone off your fall cleaning list!

*Disclaimer: Do not get any rubbing alcohol or water under the keyboard or in the interior of the phone. Any moisture inside the phone may damage it permanently.
