How to properly disinfect your phone during the coronavirus pandemic

It has become a common concern amongst the population of the world to worry that their phone is still dirty after coming home and washing hands. Properly washing hands is key for Americans to fight against the coronavirus, according to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention.

Americans check their phones nearly 100 times a day. According to one study, on average, Americans touch their phones at an average of 2,617 times a day during walking hours.

It is not ideal to wash our phones with hot and soapy water ten times a day unless it happens to be the new Cat S42 phone that you can run hot, soapy water on as often as you want.

The proper mixture to wash and sanitize your phone should consist of at least 70 percent alcohol for it to properly disinfect the touch screen. Clorox disinfecting wipes are a great option to sanitize your devices, according to Apple’s updated instructions. You can also sanitize earbuds, gaming controls, cell phone case and everything else that you touch consistently.
