Coronavirus: How to clean your mobile phone and keyboard

If you’re anything like us, you spend a lot of time on your computer and mobile, so it makes sense, along with regularly washing your hands, to clean frequently used devices.

The following steps from expert microbiologists show how using soap and water can effectively remove harmful bacteria and contain the spread of viruses from your hands.

Simple to do, and well worth a few minutes of your time.

Mobiles

1 – Unplug and switch off your phone and remove the protective case.

2 – Don’t use chemicals, gel sanitisers or cleaning wipes. These can damage the screen and protective coatings.

3 – Dampen a microfibre cloth with soap and water. Wring out the cloth thoroughly as with regular use, phones can gradually lose their water-resistant coating.

4 – Gentle clean the phone surface, taking extra care not to get water inside phone charging or headphone sockets.

5 – Dry with a separate microfibre cloth.

Keyboards

1 – Turn the device upside down and gently shake over a sink to dislodge dust or particles. 

2 – Dampen a microfibre cloth with soap and water and wring out thoroughly or use a disinfectant wipe to clean the surface of the keys and keyboard.

3 – To clean in between keys, take a cotton bud and dip into soap and water before blotting on tissue to remove excess water, before sweeping in-between keys.

4 – Dry with a separate microfibre cloth.

Remember to wash your hands after cleaning and regularly during the day. Microfibre cloths can be washed on a 60º cycle, or soaked overnight in boiling water and bleach solution.
