Wipe It

Use a microfiber cloth with an alcohol-based cleaner or disinfectant wipes to carefully clean your mobile phone throughout the day. It’s preferable to have these cleaning tools at work, and at home so you can refresh your mobile constantly.

Make sure you unplug your phone while performing all cleaning operations and never wash your phone with materials such as water, soap, vinegar, or detergent. Don’t forget to clean your phone case too.

Leave it

To most of us, having our phone in hand is almost second nature. Our device might end up in unsanitary places such as toilets, in turn collecting harmful microbes and bacteria on your phone’s body. These dangerous pathogens could easily transfer from your phone to your hands and face, causing potential harm to your health. We recommend to leave your phone in your pocket and off any surfaces in public, and only use it after washing your hands with soap and water.
