Cleaning kits

Clean hands can quickly become contaminated when you pick up your phone or tablet. Disinfecting handheld devices at least daily is a good idea.

Microfiber cloth

For phones, first, turn off the device and then remove it from the case. Next, wipe it down with a microfiber cloth to remove surface dirt and oils. Disinfect by wiping with a Clorox or Lysol wipe, avoiding the ports.

For on-the-go cleaning, this kit is small enough to fit in a pocket or bag. The microfiber cloth and 70 percent alcohol wipes can quickly disinfect a phone or tablet.

PhoneSoap

UV light is another way to disinfect phones. PhoneSoap contains two UV-C bulbs that kill 99.9 percent of germs. It also has a port for charging while sanitizing. It’s made for smartphones, but will also disinfect whatever you can fit inside, such as keys or pacifiers.

UV-Clean portable sanitizer

At 8 by 4.1 inches, this UV sanitizer is good for larger objects, such as glasses, remote controls or your phone. Equipped with four UV-C bulbs, it disinfects objects in just a minute.
