How do I clean my Galaxy phone?

Last Update Date : Apr 23. 2020

Please refer to the guidelines outlined below to clean and maintain your Galaxy phone. 

To clean your phone, here are a few guidelines to follow.

  • Before cleaning, power down your Galaxy smartphone, remove any case or cover, and unplug any cables or accessories.
  • Use a soft, lint free, microfiber cloth such as a camera lens cleaning cloth to gently wipe the exterior surface of the phone.

  • Avoid getting moisture in any opening and do not apply liquid solutions directly to your phone. If necessary, dampen the corner of your cloth with a small amount of distilled water or disinfectant, such as a hypochlorous acid – based (50-80ppm) or alcohol-based (more than 70% ethanol or isopropyl alcohol) product, and gently wipe the front and back of your phone without applying too much pressure. Avoid excessive wiping.
  • Do not use compressed air, and do not apply or spray bleaches or liquid solutions directly on your phone.
