On average we touch our phones 2,617 times a day. That's a lot of types, swipes and taps! All this touching of phones in bathrooms, gyms, offices, and the house and it is rarely we clean our phones beyond rubbing it on our pants thigh. The problem for many is how to clean them.  Being such an expensive device, the fear of using a cleaner to kill off germs may actually damage it. Fortunately this high tech device has a high tech cleaning solution called a UV light sanitizer  It uses UV light to sanitize your phone in seconds and is 99.9% effective in killing germs that can be spread from your phone.  They range in price from $30 to $100 and are becoming more common in public restrooms and universities. If you’re looking for something a little less high-tech, Apple recommends using a lint-free cloth to clean your iPhone, the kind you receive with a pair of glasses. You can lightly dampen the cloth with a combination of 70% percent rubbing alcohol and diluted water in a spray bottle in a 1:1 ratio. Remember to never spray directly on the phone and be especially careful if the screen is cracked. It may be tempting to use an all-purpose antibacterial wipe, but avoid it at all costs, as these can be too abrasive. Products like Clorox wipes contain chemicals that can harm the screen itself.
