How to Sterilize Your Phone

Wherever you go, your smartphone goes with you. But do you know how many germs accompany with your Phone?

A few years ago, the School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London  found that 92% of the phones included in the study had some type of bacteria . Logically taking into account the amount of bacteria we carry in the hands and limbs we use to handle our devices. A study that made me think what to do with my smartphone. Here I collect the steps so that my mobile phone is clean and disinfected .

Clean your smartphone
The first step seems obvious: clean your smartphone by wiping it or similar. A simple sentence that has several options.
If you want to use some of the cleaning solutions that exist in the market, you can basically choose three:
1. Screen cleaning wipes.
2. Wipes with anti-bacteria liquid.
3. Complete cleaning kits for mobile devices.
4. PhoneSoap

If you do not want to use third-party products and you're more of a do-it-yourself , you can try creating your own wonderful cleaning liquid . The recipe is very simple: a mixture with the same amount of alcohol disinfectant to 70% and distilled water . Important not to be wrong with the most habitual alcohol to 98% and not to use normal water, since it could give problems or leave residues. If you prefer home remedies, you can also make a mixture with the same amount of distilled water and vinegar , although you will have to endure its smell.

Clean connectors and perforations
Any drilling in your smartphone like connectors, microphones, headset , etc. is often a place that stores much of the dirt on your smartphone. To solve this problem you can help two utensils as common as sticks and sticks ear .
Try to pass the chopsticks through the cracks of your mobile and do not be scared of what you can find. For a thorough cleaning, pass a dry swab for the ears. If it is still not clean, you can use one of the cleaning fluids mentioned in the first step to slightly moisten the swab.
It is also a good idea to take a look at especially important areas of your smartphone like the cameras . Be very careful in these areas because what we least desire is to meet with a rayon.

Sterilizer for smartphones
If you want your smartphone to be totally free of any bacteria, a mobile sterilizer is your best choice. Although it is a greater investment than required by previous methods, an ultraviolet sterilizer uses this type of light to eliminate the germs present in your device.
The existing models are many and varied, but none of them work miracles. To give you an idea of ​​what you can find, PhoneSoap  is one of the most famous. Keep in mind that even eliminating a lot of germs, they will not be able to get rid of all the dirt on the smartphone.

Clean accessories
I can not cover the cleaning of all smartphone accessories, but I do want to make a note about one of the most common: headphones . The headphones included with the mobiles usually are of button and its cleaning is quite simple.

If you have the smartphone sterilizer, of course you can also use it to disinfect your headphones. For manual cleaning, something as simple as using a wipe moistened slightly with water (and a drop of soap if dirt is important) and rub them gently.

One thing to keep in mind: remember to let them dry completely before reusing them.
Choose whichever option you choose, if you keep a record and clean your smartphone every few weeks, you will greatly reduce the number of bacteria or germs present on your mobile.
