With our phones being in such constant use and often rarely cleaned, it should be no surprise that these smart devices can house a ton of bacteria. What’s amazing though is that on average a smartphone will carry over 25,000 bacteria per square inch, which is dirtier than a kitchen worktop (1,736 bacteria per square inch), your dog’s food bowl (8,643 bacteria per square inch) and what’s worse, your phone’s screen carries more bacteria per square inch than your average toilet seat.
Not to worry though, as we’re going to be covering the best cleaning and hygiene solutions available to help keep your phones, tablets, laptops, computers and more cleaner for longer.
1. Whoosh! Pocket Screen Wash Kit – 8ml
First up we have the Pocket Screen Wash Kit from Whoosh!, complete with a antimicrobial microfibre cloth. This non-toxic screen cleaner from Whoosh is safe to use on all types of electronic screens and we found it to remove dirt and oils with ease. Once your device’s screen has been cleaned, the Whoosh! cleaner leaves a nano-thin invisible coating helping it repel dirt, dust, smudges and fingerprints. Additionally, Whoosh! have created their cleaning solution to be non-toxic and odorless to ensure it’s environmentally friendly. Available as a 8ml spray bottle, making it perfect to keep in your pocket or bag.
CleanSeal from Olixar incorporates liquid nanotechnology designed by the military to keep your smartphones, tablets and even glasses as clean as possible by removing any dirt and sealing in the surface to create a protective barrier. Where CleanSeal differs from other cleaning solutions, is it’s anti-bacterial and hydrophobic properties, which helps to prevent a build up of bacteria on your device’s screen, in addition to repelling water. Furthermore, when testing we found that CleanSeal also kept most display’s fingerprint free for longer.
3. Zizo Nano Universal Liquid Screen Cleaner & Protector
The Zizo Nano Liquid Screen Cleaner and Protector is another solution which makes uses of hi-tech nano protection, however the difference here is the barrier it creates once cleaned to protect the display. Once cured, the solution forms a completely transparent layer with a 9H hardness rating to protect your device’s screen from dirt, dust, germs and even scratching.
