How to sanitize your Mobile.

First and foremost, you will want to consult the manufacturer of your device or carrying case for any specific instructions that they might have in order to avoid damaging your device or case.

Many manufacturers, including Apple, have provided recommendations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

While specific instructions may vary depending on your device, Apple is advising the following for its products:

  • Unplug all power sources, devices, and cables.
  • Use only a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • Avoid excessive wiping.
  • Keep liquids away from your device.
  • Don’t allow moisture to get into any openings.
  • Avoid aerosol sprays, bleaches, and abrasives.
  • Avoid spraying cleaners directly onto your device.

Apple is recommending the use of 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipes or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to wipe down any hard, nonporous surfaces.

However, they say you should avoid using them on leather or fabric to prevent damage.

However, you should avoid using chlorine bleach, according to Schaffner. This could damage your phone.
