Privacy Tip: 5 Ways You’re Being Tracked

start outside

Keeping your phone clean isn’t difficult with the right supplies and a little effort. Place a paper towel down and follow these simple steps to clean the screen, ports, and case.

screen cleaning

First, remove the smartphone case and accessories. You want to go to every corner.

Microfiber cloths are useful for wiping away dirt and grease, but I prefer screen cleaning wipes designed for smartphones. Skip the paper towels. Too rough for such delicate work.

don’t forget the port

Cell phone ports collect dust, dirt and grime. Avoid using cotton swabs. The swab leaves a fuzz that can be worse than when you started. A toothpick can be used if very gentle, but can easily snap off sharp edges in the port.

I like tools that are made for the job. It helps that they are cheap.

For plastic, rubber, and silicone cases, use an old toothbrush and a little warm water. Use a toothbrush to reach all corners and crevices. Rinse thoroughly.

Lightly dampen a microfiber cloth with water and a mild detergent for leather cases. Gently rub the case in a circular motion.

Once clean, let it dry completely before putting the case back on. Need case recommendations? We share a few here, along with our favorite screen protectorsNow you don’t have to crack your iPhone again and again.
