Our phone’s screens are open and very prone to collecting a lot of dirt, stains and sticky objects. It is therefore necessary to clean it every now and then. However, when cleaning, the right method and tools must be used in order to prevent you from further damaging the screen. That is why we have sampled these methods and steps that will help you to have a clean phone screen.
Having a clean phone screen is easy
Clean your phone’s screen with the following methods/steps:
Use a soft, lint-free cloth or microfiber cloth
This is the type of cloth that usually comes with eyeglasses, phone and other gadgets. The texture of this cloth can help remove stains easier without leaving scratches on your screen as others would do.
- Turn off your phone. It makes it easier for you to navigate your way through it while cleaning.
- Dampen the corner of the cloth with a bit of water. The urge to sprinkle water unto the phone’s screen will come but don’t succumb.
- Gently wipe your phone with the cloth up and down the screen.
- Use the dry corner of cloth to remove any excess moisture on your phone.
This is a great tool to use if you want to reach out to the corners and ports of your phone. The soft feel is great for your screen too and it’s good for removing stubborn stains. Just take it and wipe your screen with it. You’re good to go.
THINGS TO AVOID
Not every cleaning method is created equal, and unfortunately, there are some methods that you should definitely avoid.
No matter how appealing or appropriate it might seem to use a product like Windex or some other form of cleaning solvent, never resort to using these to clean the screen on your smartphone or tablet. Cleaners such as these have a tendency to damage the protective coating found on most devices, and have the potential to ruin your phone.
However, a simple Google search yields thousands of speciality solvents or cleaners which are capable of properly cleaning your device’s screen. Still, more often than not, these are just glorified versions of alcohol and water. There’s no sense in spending GHS 200 or more on a “smartphone screen cleaner,” when using a little water and a microfiber cloth works just as well (if not better).
Of course, if you’re worried about germs and want to sanitize your device, some suggest mixing a touch of alcohol with water to clean your screen. The diluted mixture may still harm your phone, however.
Never wipe or clean your smartphone screen with paper towels, facial tissues, or coarse cloths, as these have a high risk of scratching the surface. These scratches can build up over time and may render your touchscreen non-responsive or useless down the line. Again, a microfiber cloth is the only type of wipe you need to clean a smartphone’s screen the correct way.
This is quite easy, isn’t it?
Now you can clean your phone’s screen with no “wahala”.
