Coronavirus has placed us all on “hygiene alert” Coronavirus spread can be slowed by keeping surfaces and hands clean. But what about tablets and phones? How can we keep our phones and tablets clean?

There are many practical ways to ensure your phone or tablet is clean and prevent germs from spreading.

Before cleaning your device, it is important to wash your hands with warm soapy water regularly. This will ensure that you don’t pick up any germs on your device. If you have any, hand sanitizing gel will work the same way as washing your hands with soap and water.

Top Tips

  1. Don’t let anyone else use your device. It may seem self-evident, but allowing others to use your phone or tablet could result in the transmission of diseases. No matter how much the kids beg, the simple rule is one gadget per person and no sharing.
  2. Keep it tidy. Although wiping your phone on the sleeve of your sweater may make it appear clean, it is still likely to be contaminated in germs. A sanitising wipe is the greatest technique to hygienically clean a mobile phone or tablet. These can take many forms, and due to strong demand, some are difficult to find — notably those commonly seen in supermarkets.

A standard antibacterial surface wipe is one option. These wipes are highly sought-after and may be difficult to find. These wipes can also cause screen smeary and damage to the screen’s surface coating. After using one of these wipes, you may need to dry the device with a tissue. However, it is worth checking the manufacturer’s website before using these wipes. These wipes should be used with extra care and only as a last resort.

A camera lens wipe is the best choice. Professional photographers prefer to use lens wipes because they have been tested and proven effective. Lens wipes are made with isopropyl alcohol, which has been proven to kill germs such as Coronavirus. Although they are small, the lenses wipes are usually individually sealed so they won’t get on the screen or leave it too wet. We recommend that you consult the manufacturer’s website before using them.

Things to Avoid

1 – Do not allow yourself to be seduced by sanitizing gels. They can damage the screen’s surface or cause corrosion.

2 – Keep your phone out of the freezer Temperatures below zero are dangerous for germs, but low temperatures won’t kill them.

3 – Do not allow your phone to be wet with soap or water. Although many phones claim that they are water-resistant, it is not worth taking the risk.
