Looks like the Coronavirus is going to be THE new for a while. Keeping our personal environment clean is a must. Let’s start with our phones.

Everything we touch gets on our phones and then on our face-lets be proactive and do what we can to keep our phones clean. First, wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20-30 seconds.

But what is safe for our phones? Can’t dunk’em, so cleaning the surface fits the bill. Apple devices sport an oleopathic surface that resists oil and water, and Apple recommends wipes with up to 70% Isopropyl Alcohol and Clorox wipes, but definitely no bleach. Soft wipes only-no abrasive.

Galaxy devices recommend alcohol in disinfectant wipes (soft) but no sponges or abrasives should even be used.

Phone Soap Go is totally different. You place your phone under UV light for ten minutes to kill most bacteria and viruses. Costs about $100.
