Coronavirus on your smartphone: how to clean your device

It is undeniable that COVID-19 became a global concern after reaching pandemic status, the last on the scale of the World Health Organization. Efforts are already being made in several countries, including Brazil, to contain its spread.

Even with little lethality, its threat is due to its ease of contagion, since the coronavirus spreads through the air and can be attached to objects for many hours – or even days! – without dying. That is, enough time to find an unsuspecting host.

It also means that heavily used objects can infect you. So it's not strange to think about finding the coronavirus on your smartphone first. The device is by far the object we pick the most during the routine.

The solution for coronavirus on the smartphone is the same as we have for us: sanitize it whenever you can, especially when leaving the house with it.

On the other hand, washing your hands is easy and we are all done. Now, how to sanitize an electronic device like a smartphone?

If you did not have the habit of cleaning it or just wiped it with a dry cloth, then you need to check this article.

Below, we will take a step by step to sanitize your device and consequently clean any coronavirus on the smartphone. We'll also show you what to do with accessories like cases and headphones – like the AirPods Pro – that are also used frequently.

Don't worry, cleaning is easy and lasts a few minutes. These are precious minutes that will make you less vulnerable to coronavirus and any other infectious diseases that may have lodged on your smartphone.

<p>The next step is even simpler: remove it from the cover – we will also show you how to clean it! – and turn off the device. Cleaning it with it on, even with the screen locked, will cause you to take a big risk of causing your smartphone to stop working.</p>
<p>With everything prepared, create a mixture of water with 70% isoproplastic alcohol. It is important that the proportion of water is greater than that of alcohol. Put this mixture in a bottle with spray spray.</p>
<p>Now, spray this mixture on a dry cloth. If you have it at home, use a microfiber cloth, also used to clean glasses. It is worth mentioning that<strong>Never</strong> you should spray the spray directly on the smartphone. Also, do not wet the cloth too much.</p>
<p>Now, pass the cloth moistened with the mixture and rub it on the entire smartphone, both on the front and the back of the device.</p>
<p>Also clean small areas, like the USB or Lightning ports, headphone jacks and the space around the lens of the cell phone?s cameras, basically any input that needs to plug in an accessory. For them, use a cotton swab or a wooden toothpick, both dry. Be careful not to use too much force and damage these small areas.</p>
<p>Finally, leave it in a dry and ventilated place for about 15 minutes or as long as the phone needs to dry and does not compromise the integrity of the phone.</p>
