    How to safely disinfect your android device


    You guys have probably seen the recent talk about your device carrying germs and bacteria. I personally clean my device with a concoction that I made from and for literally everything in my house. It is a crazy mix I will detail later. The recommend way is a little alcohol on a soft rag or towel. But donít do this on a screen directly, use a shield of some sort I have used a Invisible shield by Zagg. The pure alcohol on the screen can cause slow damage. So start cleaning no H1N1 this winter.

    On another note how do you clean your device?

    I don't. I wipe the smudges off the screen with my shirt, pants or a rag (there is a screen protector so it doesn't really matter what I use.

    No one touches my phone but me, so any germs on it came from me in the first place.
    I gave my iPhone to my 5 year old and got an EVO.

    Thats what I usually do like use a muscle shirt or something. But when I need a good clean I use my concoction. Because people just be like "man let me see your phone?" and sometimes it pisses me off but its cool.

    Bleach, Tide, Dawn, Ammonia, Alcohol, H2O2, and some other random stuff.

    Dude, don't EVER mix bleach and ammonia together! It makes chlorine gas, which could kill you.

    I know I'm a science nerd but I used really small amounts.

    Well "science nerd", you should know better. Plus you don't know what damage you will do to your phone. Try part of a disinfectant baby wipe instead.
