The high price of mobile phones, which in fact has increased as a result of the latest events of public knowledge, forces us to take steps to prevent these devices from being damaged if they are dropped or hit. One of the first things we do as users is to put a case on them, but the problem is that, shortly after, they begin to look in poor condition, and make the smartphone not look as it should. Just because of that, Today we are going to teach you how to clean the case of your phone step by step.
The first thing you should know is that these devices are one of the dirtiest things we come into contact with. They accumulate a huge amount of microorganisms that could cause different health problems.. In addition to this, dirt detracts from their carcasses, so it is important to know how to treat them.
And we say this because, even if you use a disinfectant to get rid of potential viruses on your smartphone, you will still need a treatment from time to time against the dust and grime that gets inside its crevices.
Basic cleaning of the mobile phone case
The symptom that manifests itself before with respect to the passage of time is that carcasses turn somewhat yellowish. We recommend that you use a mixture of warm soapy water and remove any dirt with a toothbrush. We recommend using brushes with soft bristles to avoid damaging the surface and finish with a dry cloth.
If the stains do not come out that way, the next step will be to resort to one of those magical home solutions. We’re talking about baking soda, which you may have to apply several times but often gives amazing results, so use baking soda or eventually isopropyl alcohol as a substitute.
As long as you clean the case to get rid of the yellowness, another option is to complete the task putting toothpaste on it, which is an effective stain remover, and waiting for it to take effect before brushing it.
What about covers made of other materials?
It is clear that, with different materials, there are different ways in which it is advisable to clean the phone case.
Leather cases have become popular in recent years and, although they are more elegant to look at, especially those with grooves can contain an impressive amount of accumulated dirt inside.
What is suggested in these cases is to wipe them with a soft microfiber cloth along with warm water once a week. This for prevent dirt from getting too deep into the grooves, making it difficult to remove later.
Leather being a product that naturally attracts moisture, you have to make sure to dry it after cleaning it. Also if it is exposed to water or snow you should separate it from your smartphone and dry it away from it.
Eventual difficult-to-remove stains could be removed with detergent or specific cleaners.
surely there is few more distinguished alternatives than a wooden case for your smartphone. During a meeting, no one will doubt that the mobile that is so well “dressed” is yours and not someone else’s.
Nevertheless, wood is a sensitive, delicate material, which could be spoiled with daily use. Respecting the direction of the fiber, you should dry it with a dry microfiber cloth as soon as it gets wet.
You have to be very careful with pouring liquids on it, since if they are not suitable for wood they will ruin it. It’s probably best to buy a specific wood case cleaning kit along with the case.
How should you never clean your case?
On more than one occasion, the guidelines on what you should do are not as relevant as what you should not. You should never clean your case with harsh chemicals.much less if you still have the smartphone inside.
In most situations, what warm soapy water, or failing that, baking soda won’t remove, rarely can even the harshest chemicals on the market, so look for a new case.
