How to Clean Cell Phones and Other Tech Devices

November 30, 2015 11:31 am

Since water and electronics don’t exactly go well together, you may wonder how you can safely (and still effectively) clean your much-used tech devices. Since these things accumulate a ton of bacteria due to frequent touching, it’s important to clean them frequently. These tips will show you how.

  1. Use a disinfectant. While you likely want to clean your gadgets to remove those signs of smudging and fingerprints, it’s far more important to clean them to remove germs and bacteria. Use a disinfectant by spraying it lightly on a soft cloth and gently wiping the screen or keyboard—never by using pre-soaked wipes, which can drip into your device.
  2. Care for your touchscreens. Touchscreens may become damaged if they come in contact with alcohol or a disinfectant, so you might want to invest in a cleanser designed especially for them.
  3. Use compressed air. To clean dust from keyboards and crevices in other devices, use a can of compressed air, which can be purchased at your local office supply store.
  4. Clean earbuds. Constantly sticking your earbuds or headphones into your ears isn’t exactly sanitary, so you’ll want to regularly wipe them with an alcohol-dampened cotton swab.
  5. Go easy on the TV. Experts advise against cleaning your flatscreen television with glass cleaner or even water. Instead, wipe the screen gently with a microfiber cloth to remove dust and fingerprints.
