Phones and other devices with touch screens have germs. We all know that. But, how many exactly?
Well, it’s been said that touch screens have 18 times the germs that the flush handle in a men’s restroom has.
Although those germs can’t be eliminated from our lives, we can certainly try to reduce them. Especially now that the cold season is upon us! So, today I’m going to share with you my favorite way to clean and disinfect small electronic devices. *First, let me warn you that this is just how I clean mine. I’ve never read this anywhere but I clean my phones regularly and have never ruined any touch screen devices. But I must still say, try at your own risk!
How to Clean and Disinfect a Phone, iPod, iPad or Other Touch Screen Device
- Turn the device off.
- Wet a cotton ball or Q-tip with rubbing alcohol until damp (not soaking).
- Wipe the device with the damp cotton ball.
- Let air dry.
The rubbing alcohol works so great because it acts as a disinfectant by eliminating the germs. Plus, it evaporates so excess moisture isn’t left on your phone. It’s worked perfectly for me!
