Using the Wrong Cleaners
Your iPhone probably carries more bacteria than your toilet seat. But before you rush off to clean it, make sure you aren’t using the wrong products. Cleaning your iPhone with the improper cleaning cloth or chemicals can damage it.
- Use a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth. Anything more abrasive than that could leave scratches in your screen or finish.
- Don’t use chemicals. Some cleaning products can damage your iPhone screen’s protective coating or even reduce its water resistance.
- Go with a UV option. Because it can be tough to tell which cleaners are safe for iPhone use, we recommend going for a non-liquid option like PhoneSoap.
