It’s problem we all run into: a dirty screen of your iPhone or Android device. Here’s how to make it sparkle clean again.
We don’t touch anything as much on a daily basis as the screen of our iPhone or Android phone. This is not so strange, because the device allows you to be in contact with your friends and family almost everywhere you go and gives you access to the latest news. That is, of course, extremely handy, but it also has a disadvantage: your screen gets dirty very quickly. You won’t be able to prevent it, but solving the problem is fairly simple.
Cleaning your iPhone or Android
It used to be pretty simple. You didn’t often have to deal with a dirty screen, because there was no touchscreen yet. In fact, the iPhone didn’t exist yet. Now times have changed and we can’t do without the touchscreen that makes operating a phone much simpler. That does mean, however, that the screen gets dirty and is full of bacteria in no time. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to get your screen shiny again.
Use a microfiber cloth
A microfiber cloth is perhaps the best way to get your screen clean. A dry cloth will quickly wipe away fingerprints and dust. By the way, it doesn’t have to be an expensive cloth from Apple if you have an iPhone.
Want an even better result? Then use distilled water. Although it may seem a bit excessive, this will ensure good results. This water is free of impurities, so it will not leave streaks. It is also possible to buy a special cleaning agent for the screen of your iPhone or Android. You can also make these yourself. To do this, you use 50 percent distilled water and 50 percent vinegar. That water is needed to dilute it, because otherwise it can damage your screen. Something you don’t want.
Spectacle wearers may be familiar with them: special eyeglass wipes to clean your glasses. After using these disposable wipes, you won’t see a single spot on your glasses anymore. You get the same result with your iPhone or Android. This way you don’t have to mess around with cleaning solution yourself. You could also opt for wipes specially designed for cleaning the screen, only they do not differ much. So see which option is the most advantageous for you.

This option is there for the person who wants to go rigorous. This device uses UV light to kill 99 percent of bacteria, sterilizing your phone. For example, you can get this one from Samsung for less than $25. Unfortunately, it doesn’t solve the stains, for that you still have to use the options above.
