How Do I Clean and Disinfect My Phone?

How to Clean Your Phone 

So you need to find a safe and effective way to clean your phone screen and disinfect the entire surface? Well, you've come to the right place. PhoneSoap specializes in phone cleaners that will keep your phone looking new and UV-C sanitizers that will disinfect and charge it. Best of all, our products make the process quick and simple.

First, don't use alcohol.

We get asked the same question: Why can't I just use alcohol wipes? There are a couple reasons you you should avoid alcohol wipes. One, alcohol wipes are not completely effective, and two, they can damage your device. This is true for other liquid cleaners and chemicals:

"It is not recommended to use any alcohol-based solutions when cleaning a capacitive touchscreen, neither is it a good idea to apply common household detergents, even if it's stated that they can be used for computer and/or TV screens. The aggressive compounds in such cleaners can easily wipe off the oleophobic coat and leave your glass 'naked'...Cleaning your mobile device's glass should generally be done with just a soft, cotton rag. In extreme cases, water-based solvents should do the trick." -

For more information on why you shouldn't be using alcohol wipes or harsh chemicals, check out this article on, as well as this blog where we go more in-depth on the dangers of using alcohol on your phone.

Second, we have an easier solution: PhoneSoap ShinePhoneSoap 3

PhoneSoap Shine is a water-based solution with no ammonia or alcohol and  100 percent safe for all screens. It's a small, portable spray bottle with a built-in microfiber cloth, making for an easy spray-and-wipe system that leaves your screen looking like new.

Now that your phone looks clean, it's time to disinfect it. PhoneSoap 3 is a smartphone sanitizer that kills 99.99% of germs on your smartphone* using UV-C light. It takes only 10 minutes, and best of all, there's a USB port in the back that allows for charging as well.

PhoneSoap 3 kills common cold and flu viruses, as well as more serious strands of bacteria like MRSA and Staph.*

With these two products, you no longer need to worry about how to clean and disinfect your phone. For larger items like remote controls, iPads, game controllers, and pacifiers, check out our HomeSoap
