How to Clean Your Phone to Help Protect  You & Your Family

It’s one thing to stop touching your face. It’s another to stop touching the things that touch your face.

We bring our phone to our face more than our 🖐 hands.. So its time to sanitise our phones too.. and heres how. 


TOP TIP ~ Do's & Dont's to keeping your phone sanitised
Keeping you and your family protected effectively & naturally.
One of the best ways to protect yourself is to keep your hands clean and off your face.

Keeping your phone sanitised is another smart way to keep germs off your fingertips. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers your phone a “high-touch surface,” which could make it a carrier of the virus.
But cleaning your phone — thoroughly, is not as straightforward as it might seem. There are all sorts of nooks and crannies, delicate glass and intricate protective cases.


1. The Don’ts …
Any sort of moisture can interfere with your phone’s function. Apple recommends that people avoid using spray cleaners or heavy-duty products.
No bleach, no aerosol sprays. You need your phone to work, even if you want it clean.
Also — and this probably goes without saying — don’t dunk your phone into any sort of liquid, anti-bacterial or otherwise. It won’t end well for either of you.

 

2. The Dos …
A gentle wipe with a product that has 65 percent isopropyl alcohol will do just fine & sanitise (if away from home) or wash your hands thoroughly after you’re done.
And don’t forget your phone case.
Wipe it down, in and out, through and through. Let it dry before reassembling it.
You might also consider changing a bit of your behavior. AT&T suggests sharing photos through texts, instead of passing the phone around, and using devices like headphones and technology like Bluetooth to keep your phone away from your face.
