Sunday: When did you last clean your phone?

How many germs are living on your phone?


Do you dare to find out?

I just found this quiz which tells you how many germs could be living on your cell phone at any given time.

I don't know about you but the results surprised me! There were far more than I imagined.

So how do you clean your smartphone?

Not easily! Smartphone screens are very easy to damage.
  • Use a soft, lint free cloth. If you use paper towel it can cause scratches on screen coatings that may be on your device. 
  • For smudges just rub gently with the soft cloth until they are removed.
  • Don't use chemicals on your screen as again it can damage the surface particularly on iphones and ipads.
  • Be careful of using wipes containing alcohol to get rid of germs as they can damage the surface of a smart phone.
  • If you have actual stains on your phone then use a piece of slightly damp cloth to wipe clean. Then dry the area immediately with a soft cloth.
  • Do not use water anywhere on the phone where there are openings eg speaker, microphone etc
Because I hate the thought of germ build up on my phone I use clear screen protectors on my smart phone.

The screen protectors are cheap to purchase. I have never found that they make my touch screen less receptive and I can change them every couple of months and voila I have a germ free phone again.

How do you keep your smart phone or tablet clean and germ free?

See you tomorrow!
