The Best Way To Clean Your Smartphone

Most people don't know this, but your smartphone screen is a highly sensitive piece of technology.  It contains several delicate layers that could be damaged by using the wrong cleaning methods.


Have you ever used Windex to clean your smartphone?  Bad move!  This can deteriorate the oleophobic coating of your smartphone screen leading to even more fingerprints showing up on that device you just cleaned.  Using harsh cleaning products can also lead to the erosion of the anti-glare coating on the screen so it will be harder to see during the day.


How do you avoid this?  Be sure to only use cleaning products specifically designed for use on LCD screens.  These products do not contain any harmful solvents or alcohol that could hurt your display and will not leave any streaks.  My favorite is the Screen Mom screen cleaner.  Here's a link to purchase it on amazon.  It's some good stuff!
