The best way to keep your phone, tablet, and other digital devices clean is to wash your hands properly before use. Get in the habit of washing your hands before picking up your device to keep it as germ-free as possible.
Before you take any cleaning measures, disconnect your phone from its charger, or remove it from a wireless charging pad, and turn off the device. This will show you how dirty the screen is, along with preventing you from accidentally calling someone or opening an app.
Your first line of defense is a microfiber cloth. You likely have a few of these lying around, as these cloths usually come with purchases of screen protectors, sunglasses, or regular glasses. These cloths are readily available at local retailers if you don’t have one handy. Here’s how to use a microfiber cloth properly to clean your phone.
