Your cell phone is probably in your hands for a good part of the day. And when you’re not holding it, it’s in your purse, on your desk, or on the counter. Our phones help us stay organized and keep in touch with work, friends, and family. But sadly, near-constant use them makes them a major breeding ground for germs. Here’s how to clean and disinfect your phone without compromising its function.
1. Clean Hands, Clean Phone
You’ve heard it before, but one of the keys to keeping excess germs out of your life is to keep them off your hands. Good hand hygiene will help you avoid stacking your phone up with billions of unnecessary and unsavory characters. You know the drill…soap and water, don’t wash to quickly, and keep hand sanitizer around.
