The below recommendations are by Lena Ciric, a microbiologist at UCL and told to Elle Hunt of the Guardian Newspaper. You may be washing your hands but there is a risk of contaminating them again with your phone, says the Most Thorough Residential House Cleaning and Maid Service in Evanston, IL., Dial-A-Maid. Ordinarily it’s a good idea to clean your phone every now and then. However, because coronavirus is so contagious and we know it can survive on surface for two or three day, it’s wise to clean it more frequently.
We take our phones everywhere, and we’re constantly touching them. You might wash your hands after you’ve been out but then contaminate them contaminate them with your phone, as you haven’t cleaned it.
Apple advises to use a 70% isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox disinfecting wipe. The alcohol quickly evaporates from the surface of your phone and kills all the microbes.
You can also use soap and water. Of course, don’t put your phone under running water, even if it’s water resistant. Moisten a cloth or a paper towel with washing up liquid or hand soap something that foams, with a detergent in it. Wipe I t over the phone, then wipe that off with a cloth or paper towel moistened with water. You might have to do that a couple of times to get rid of the soapy bit. Then dry it, that should do the trick.
