It is most important to clean commonly touched surfaces due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As our hands need to be sanitized regularly but we also have to sanitize our smartphone. One type of surface which is regularly touched by us is our phone’s display.
Our smartphone’s touch screen can be cleaned by disinfecting wipes but we can take a look at the view of smartphone makers. Cleaning your phone is as important as washing your hands and it may also help you to stay away from most infectious diseases.
