But, looking at the current situation now, that’s not possible because most of the shops in the mall has been closed for almost a month.

    The most simplest way to disinfect your smartphone is by wiping your smartphone with a microfiber cloth. We know you might have different type of cloth in your house. But you only have to use microfiber cloth to clean your smartphone. In case you might not know how does a microfiber cloth. Do you remember when you purchase a screen protector or tempered glass for your smartphone, they used to give you a small black or white cloth? Well, that the microfiber cloth.

    So, once you have the microfiber cloth, you have to gently wipe the exterior of your smartphone in order to get rid of the smudges and crud. This is one of the most effective ways to disinfect your smartphone because it can remove the germs and bacteria from the surface of your smartphone.

    You could also be someone who don’t trust the microfiber cloth because its just a normal cloth isn’t it. If that’s the case, then we suggest you to use wipes to disinfect your smartphone. All you have to do is get the wipes or wet tissue in understandable terms and then wipe the whole surface thoroughly. But make sure you don’t wipe the port section. Because it’s wet and it can spoil your smartphone ports. If the wipes are too wet, then you have to wring it out before wiping your smartphone with it.

    The final way to disinfect your smartphone is to use a very clean paper towel to wipe your smartphone. So if you have used the wipes to clean your smartphone, next we suggest you to use the clean paper towel to wipe your smartphone again to avoid spoiling your smartphone.

    In conclusion, these are simple ways to disinfect your smartphone. We hope these steps will help you to keep you away from virus infection. Do also note that, you need to disinfect your smartphone frequently especially during the COVID-19 period. And also don’t forget to wash your hands cleanly frequently too.
