Cleaning the case of your Apple Watch

First, we’ll tell you how to clean the Apple Watch’s case, or device itself. It may sound really stupid, but it’s important to first take it off the charger and turn the device off (before we get angry emails). If your watch has a strap that cannot withstand water, take it off.

Wipe your Apple Watch with a non-abrasive and lint-free cloth. If desired, wet it and hold it under warm running water for 10 to 15 seconds.
Turn and press the Digital Crown under the water to clean dirt underneath.
Dry the entire device with a non-abrasive and lint-free cloth.

According to Apple, it is possible to clean your Apple Watch with certain alcohol wipes. Above all, do not clean with soap or other detergents. Doing so may damage the Apple Watch.

Apple Watch straps cleaning

The case of your Apple Watch is one thing, but of course you also want to have a clean band. You should also clean those regularly, because all those bacteria that collect in them from sweat and other causes are not nice either.

Silicone or strap

There are of course different ways of cleaning for different straps. For example, it is obvious that you need to clean silicone bands often. Those, of course, are primarily made for using the Apple Watch during sports.

For a simple cleaning, wipe it clean with a non-abrasive lint-free cloth. For a deeper clean, use warm water and mild hand soap. Then dry it with the non-abrasive lint-free cloth.

Nylon or metal strap

A nylon or braided strap naturally holds dirt much easier than a silicone one. Apple recommends not using soap, just a non-abrasive lint-free cloth that you wet if necessary. It may be easier to clean some parts with a toothbrush, though.

Leather strap

Leather does not take well to water, so don’t soak it or hold it under the faucet. You can lightly wet a non-abrasive lint-free cloth if you have to. Just make sure that the moisture does not get into one spot.
