Cloth and Detergent Selection
- First of all, it is very important to choose a cloth and detergent that will not damage the cosmetics of the device. Therefore, you should prefer soft and non-woven flat cloths as much as possible and stay away from products that may damage your device such as napkins and towels. Also your detergent should be made of soft soaps instead of abrasive ones.
- Mix the soap with water in a spray bottle and moisten the cloth. Do not overdo the rate of water and soap here. If you do not have a waterproof device, remove all cables and accessories (such as chargers, headphones). Squeeze the prepared solution into the cloth, then gently clean the front and back cosmetics of your phone in order. After that, wipe it again with a dry cloth.
Cleaning the headphone and charging port
- You can use cotton swabs or toothpicks to clean the areas that the cloth couldn’t reach. To avoid damaging the device, you should never clean the areas like headphone and charging port with a wet cloth. You can use a swab or a toothpick to clean it but you should do it very gently in a way that it will not damage the device.

Do not twist the cables too much when cleaning them to avoid damaging them. After cleaning everything, your phone will be cleaned of germs and safe to use.
