Cleaning Hack #1

Your phone speakers could get really dirty and full of dust over time. This is where lint rollers can get really handy. Simply roll it over the speakers to remove all the dust and dirt.


Cleaning Hack #2

A toothbrush is great for cleaning your earbuds, just make sure that you use those with nylon bristles as it breaks static electricity. This can help clean hard-to-reach areas easier. Remember to not wet the toothbrush, and gently drybrush in a circular motion instead. Brushing too hard can only push the dirt deeper.

Cleaning Hack #3

For your phone jacks, you can use an interdental brush as it has the same size and shape as your headphone slot. This method can also clean without damaging a sensitive area as your phone jacks. Remember to turn your device off before cleaning.

Cleaning Hack #4

If you want to clean your device’s screen and rid of those unwanted scratches or spots, using microfiber cloths and coffee filters will offer soft cleaning that will be really effective in keeping your screen clean.

Cleaning Hack #5

Grab a stick that’s narrower than your USB port, then apply Stickum over it, spread glue evenly on the Stickum. After it dries, put the Stickum side of the plate or stick into the USB port, then pull it out.

Cleaning Hack #6

For cleaning glass screens, using paper and rubbing it in a circular motion could work effectively. However, liquid crystal displays need a different cleaning method. A mixture of distilled water and white vinegar in a 1:1 ratio on a spray bottle can work wonders. Turn off your device, spray the solution on a soft cloth and wipe it on your screen.
