How to Clean Your Technology

Since many of us take our smartphones and tablets with us everywhere, it’s no surprise that they’re breeding grounds for all kinds of nasty bacteria that can make you sick.  Keep your gadgets clean and your body healthy with these cleaning tips.

1.  Turn off your device.  This will help prevent damage that may occur while cleaning.

2.  Remove your screen protector and case.

3.  Use a microfiber cloth and tech-safe cleaning solution.  Never, ever use commercial liquid cleaning products to clean your technology.  Use solutions formulated specifically for electronics.

4.  Clean the ports of your device with compressed air.  Be sure to use compressed air that is designed for use with electronics.

5.  Put your screen protector and case back on your device.

Clean your smartphone and tablet at least once a month to eliminate any germs and bacteria on your devices.

Ewww!  What’s lurking on my tech?

Rethink taking your phone into the restroom.  One in sex cell phones were found to have harmful bacteria on them.

Pass the wipes.  Twenty-three percent of viruses can transfer between your tablet and your hands.

Cover your nose when you sneeze.  Cold and flu germs can stay on a surface for almost 48 hours.
