Let's face it, it’s literally covered with bacteria from fingerprints, sweat, and even makeup residue which is hard to see. Although wiping down your device with the edge of your shirt or smudging the screen with your fingers may certainly seem to tidy up your display but, there are far better methods to thoroughly clean your device. So here's how to clean your cell phone To clean your display, turn off your screen as this allows you to see the dirt better.
Using a toothpick lightly clean around the edges your phone, that’s where most of the dirt is filled. Then just go ahead and wipe out the dirt with a cloth Fill a spray bottle with water and just add about 2- 3 drops of rubbing alcohol Shake it well once you are done So just lightly spray the solution on a microfiber cloth and gently wipe all over your entire phone Germs don’t just bread on phone but also on the phone cover so make sure to clean that as well.

Next up is the keyboard the most neglected electronic device. Dust, dirt, fingerprints and even spilt food particles provide a home for bacteria to thrive on your keyboard. I'm going to show you 3 ways to get rid of tiny crumbs and dirt out of keyboard. The 1st one is using a cleaning slime. I got this one from Amazon You need to press a glob of slime against the keyboard and dab wherever you are trying to clean. Because of its sticky properties it will easily pick up dust, lint or any tiny crumbs. The other way is using a mini vacuum, which I also got from Amazon Just plug it straight into USB port without requiring any external power source. Press the Power button to increase the suction power, for vacuuming heavier dirt and dust. If you don’t wish to invest in any of the above then just turn the keyboard upside down and gently tap on the back side to remove the dust. Next use a soft brush, for gently getting into tiny crevices. Use a cotton pad dipped in rubbing alcohol to go over the surface of the keys to remove the dirt over it.
Give it a good wipe and you will see that the keys look clean and shiny Then use a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and clean in between and around the keys. You will instantly see the difference You probably use your earphones all day, listening to your favorite tunes, but did you know how gross they can get after they’ve been in and out of your ears, and in and out of your bag, picking up dirt, bacteria and ear wax along the way. So here’s a quick way to clean them up. Take a toothpick and start by cleaning the wax out of the ear bud Once that’s done, if you still see a waxy buildup, dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol, tap it off and then wipe the bud to remove anything remaining. Go ahead and wipe the outer area of the ear buds with the alcohol-dipped cotton pad Also don't forget to clean the wire of the earphone as well Be sure to clean your earphones at least once in 2 weeks Keeping your electronics clean will not only extends the life of your devices but also improves their overall performance.
