You can understand how important it is to sanitize your phone in flu season, being careful not to damage it. It becomes even more important if you share the use of this tool at home with children or teenagers, who may not be familiar with hand washing. Many phones have touch screens and bacteria easily spread from the phone to the hands and face. And, of course, as we speak, they spread in our mouth. Therefore, you need to clean your smartphone once a day (even more often, if you remember). How?
Microfiber cloths. Keep them in your bag and clean your phone after use. They are useful for not scratching the screen, and above all, they are practical.
Water and alcohol. You can try a home solution of 60% water, and 40% denatured alcohol. Lightly moisten the corner of soft or lint-free microfiber cloth or cotton swab. Important; Do not apply or spray the mix directly on the phone, which could damage it.

UV light. It can kill 99.9% of bacteria and germs in just six minutes and comes in a slew of fun colors like hot pink and blue.
