Your smartphone is seven timesdirtier than a toilet, reported USA Today in Feb. 2019 based off of several research studies. We are attached to our phones and bring them everywhere — even on the toilet. According the Journal of Hospital Infection, coronaviruses can live on glass, for up to nine days, so it’s important to disinfect it regularly.
Use a solution of 60% water and 40% rubbing alcohol to clean your phone. Turn off your phone, avoid any charger or headphone ports. Use a cotton swab to rub disinfectant solution on the phone, but squeeze out any excess to avoid dripping. Wipe the phone dry with a clean cloth immediately. If you have an iPhone this is still a good way to clean your phone. Apple updated its cleaning guide to say you can use "70% isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox disinfecting wipes" to clean your iPhone as long as you're careful to avoid openings in the phone.
