Cleaning Your Phone's Screen the Proper Way

Published on 02 January 14

No one could deny the fact that smartphones are indubitably useful in our lives in countless ways. All the staggering features of each and every launch of the big boys in the mobile industry make smartphones more of a necessity than a mere luxury-getting people more inclined to succumb in the advancement of this kind of device. With a smartphone as the gear of almost everyone, they can do so much that one could imagine-well, almost.

But, bringing back the favor to this nifty technology, what do you think can we do about our trusty phone more than just recharging it every time it runs out of battery juice? Well, we can in fact take care of it. How, you ask? Take good care of it by keeping it all shining and shimmering-yes, keeping it clean. Do you have any idea how dirty your phone is? Perhaps within just a week, you can get the shining, shimmering into a smudgy and slimy one. Let all the shuddering be kept to your mind.

This handheld device gets pretty filthy in just a fraction of time because-as evident with how I addressed it this time-we take hold of it with our bare hands as often as we could even without thoroughly washing our hands. And that’s what I'm actually found guilty of oftentimes. We may have learned how filthy our phone is, but we might not know the proper way of cleaning it. You see, it's more than just a wipe. There is actually a proper way to clean our phone-especially that of its luminous screen. You might have your phone a screen protector, but believe me, that still won’t do too much. Have you tried comparing your current screen protector to a new one?

Clean the digital windows of your phone by following these steps below:
#1: Clean it with the right tools

Never-I repeat, never use abrasive cloths or materials to clean your screen. If you do, then brace yourself to say goodbye to your shiny, smooth display. Abrasive materials include tissue or paper. Although you may not notice the scratches they leave on the surface immediately, in due time, you will, and it’s something that is really unsightly. Using microfiber cloth is inarguably better as it is specifically designed to wipe out all the dirt off your screen-perfect for sensitive surfaces.
#2: Have the right solution

The solution for your predicament with your phone is actually having the right solution. On a serious note, what kind of cleaning solution do you have in mind? Alcohol? Acetone? If you still mention another chemical-laden cleaner, then you’re out! These solutions are actually unhealthy for your devices since they can strip the protective coating of your screen. Use a small amount of water, or any specialized cleaning solution for screen instead to keep your gadgets safe. There are specialized screen cleaners, I say. Also, you can have your homemade solution by mixing same amount of white vinegar with distilled water.
#3: Finally, clean the screen

Now that you have your tools and solution, you may start cleaning. But, be sure you've turned your phone off. Wipe your phone using the microfiber cloth to brush off all the dust and loose objects. Once done, you may now damp the cloth with your solution. Just damp it enough to avoid the solution from dripping. Don’t spray the solution directly on your display as well. Wipe your screen in rapid circular motion to prevent from pressing the device too hard. And lastly, use the dry part of the cloth to wipe your screen dry.
Well, that will do the trick. Now, you’ll be able to see a happy you from your screen’s reflection.
