How to clean, disinfect and sterilize a smartphone quickly and effectively (without damaging it)
Whether you are a veteran of rubbing the phone or new followers (or just curious) we have decided to collect all the tips on like to clean, disinfect e sterilize correctly your smartphone, whether it is a Xiaomi, Samsung, OnePlus, OPPO and even iPhone model. Below we will go to see some useful methods, then it will be up to you to choose the one you prefer or maybe opt for a combined use according to your needs. What is certain is that, as also pointed out at the beginning, cleaning the smartphone should become a common practice for all users (with or without a pandemic).
How to clean your smartphone with a special product
First of all, it is possible to focus on specific products dedicated to cleaning smartphones, monitors, notebooks and other electronic devices with screens. There are several available for sale and the price ranges are among the most diverse: below you will find the procedure to follow, while further down there is a short selection of cleaning products.
Clean your phone with specific products: here's how
- To wash hands.
There is no need to say it, but it is good to specify. Before proceeding with cleaning anything, it is best to disinfect or wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
- Turn off the phone.
Another important step: it is good to always turn off the phone or any technological device that you want to clean thoroughly (in order to avoid any type of accident).
- Proceed with cleaning.
The time has come to give it all: don't spray the cleaner of your choice directly on your smartphone. The sanitizing spray is sprayed on a microfiber cloth, which will then be used to gently clean the surface of the phone (both the display and the back cover and the perimeter frame).
- Wash the phone cover.
Obviously, the cleaning will also be carried out on the protective cover, in case you use one. For the case you can be more practical (obviously depending on the material): if we are talking about hard or soft plastic you can use the same spray that you used on your smartphone or proceed with soap and water. If the cover is made of some more “precious” material, follow the instructions for that type of surface.
Then there are a number of details to remember: do not use paper towels to dry the phone, sanitize the smartphone at least once a day and - above all - do not use products based on bleach or 100% alcohol! Once your device is perfectly dry, as well as the cover, you can go back to using it without problems.

ZEISS wipes are the ones I currently use but I have had a good experience with the Ringke wipes too. As for the AIESI ones, this is the cheapest solution but they are very small and too soaked: I personally use them for disinfect the TWS headphones and other small devices.
