How To Clean Your Phone Screen Correctly


We carry our cell phones with us wherever we go. Touching our phones and other surfaces is something we do all the time. Like everything else, these devices can pick up and redistribute germs. Disinfecting wipes are efficient at destroying germs, but they can erode and remove the protective coating on the glass screen. That is why it is critical to disinfect your technology. It’s a simple process to sanitize all of your devices, and you probably already have everything you need at home. 

As we all know, screens tend to get dusty after so much up-close-and-personal time. It should be cleaned right away if a smartphone screen comes into touch with things that could stain it, such as ink, dyes, makeup, dirt, food, oils, or lotions. Phone screens have a high level of sensitivity to touch. It is important to clean your smartphone with a gentle cloth now and then. When you use your phone, bacteria and germs can get on the screen and spread between users. To prevent germs from spreading, clean your phone and tablet screen regularly.

Ways To Clean Your Phone Screen

Cleaning your phone more frequently is always a good idea, but how do you remove the muck without hurting it? A microfiber cloth is a safe and effective way to clean your screen. If your screen is in serious need of cleaning, moisten a microfiber cloth with distilled water and wipe it down instead of squirting water directly on it. 

This technique can also clean the back and sides of your phone. To remove dust and smudges, wipe the screen with a clean microfiber cloth. Next, apply a tiny amount of 70% isopropyl alcohol or a 70% alcohol cleaning wipe to another clean microfiber cloth. Finally, wipe off the entire screen, paying particular attention to the corner of the phone. Many companies began to produce UV Phone Sanitizers, which can eliminate bacteria and germs in just minutes. 

The procedure is very straightforward; purchase one of these UV treatment boxes and set your smartphone in it for a few minutes till it completes the task; then, you can relax knowing that your smartphone is germ-free for a while.

Do’s And Don’ts Of Cleaning A Touchscreen

Wipe the surface with a lint-free microfiber cloth. Cleaning the surface of your touchscreen device with a lint-free microfiber cloth is best. Don’t use water to saturate. For stubborn dirt and debris, use a small amount of water. For best results turn your phone off and remove the case so that you can eliminate all dirt and germs. 

Windex, vinegar, Lysol, soap, or any other cleaning solution will degrade the screen’s oleophobic (oil-resistant) coating, making the device considerably more vulnerable to future harm. Don’t use abrasive cloths, towels, paper towels, or similar products since they may scratch or harm your phone. Lint and sand can become caught in your phone’s microscopic pores and crevices where the screen joins the body.

Scotch tape is the most satisfactory solution for removing sand and lint. After laying it along the folds and speaker, roll it up and carefully insert it in the ports. The tape’s stickiness will pull out any lint or sand that may have become caught in your phone. Finally, make sure the touchscreen cleaning cloth is clean. Wash the screen regularly to maintain it clean.


Cleaning with spit and rub is never a good idea. Your screen will only collect filth, which you will have to clean later. When cleaning the screen, don’t use too much force, or the display may become damaged. Remember to never wipe the touchscreen with anything that contains ammonia. The screen is susceptible to ammonia damage. There is an excellent chance of scratching, especially on the screen, if you use tissue paper or anything other than a soft cloth. If you spray liquid or water directly on the screen, there’s a chance it’ll leak inside the device and cause damage. Instead, spritz the liquid onto the microfiber, squeeze out any excess, and then wipe.


Before moving on to more sophisticated actions, we recommend that you first follow the World Health Organization’s fundamental rules for being hygienic, including washing your hands with soap at regular intervals. While this may appear to be a simple process, keep in mind that germs can enter your smartphone through your hands, so keep your hands clean rather than wiping your smartphone many times.


Now we can conclude that with all of these options, we can keep our phone clean. At the very least, you should disinfect your equipment once a day. Be sure also to sanitize your work environment using disinfectant wipes. These steps will assist you in maintaining your health and safety.
