Keep your Galaxy phone clean

We all use our phones every day, and sometimes we may not realize exactly how often we're touching the display, especially when we're checking messages, browsing the internet, or using apps. Make sure you’re getting the best experience from your Galaxy phone by keeping it clean and sanitary. Taking care of your phone is simple, and we have the basic rundown right here.

Caution: These cleaning instructions are recommended for the glass, ceramic, and metal surfaces of your phone only. Accessories that are made of plastic, rubber, or leather may be damaged.

Properly clean your Galaxy phone

Before starting, make sure your phone is powered down and unplugged from any power sources. Remove any covers, cases, or accessories as well.

  • A lint-free, soft microfiber cleaning cloth is ideal for cleaning your phone. You may also use a camera lens cleaning cloth. These are gentle and will not damage your phone.

  • Gently wipe the front and back of your phone with the microfiber cloth. Do not apply too much pressure.

  • You should avoid getting excess moisture onto your phone; however, you may dampen the corner of the microfiber cloth with a small amount of distilled water.

  • You can also use a disinfectant, such as a hypochlorous acid-based solution (containing 50-80ppm) or an alcohol-based solution (containing more than 70% ethanol or isopropyl alcohol). Do not apply these liquid solutions directly to your phone; they should be carefully applied to a microfiber cloth instead.

  • Avoid using cans of compressed air, as they may damage the surface of your phone.

  • Do not use spray bleach on your phone.
