Cellphones and Tablets
Make sure you are disinfecting your phone and tablet multiple times a day. Use a disinfecting wipe or alcohol solution (70% or higher). Take your phone out of the case and clean the case and phone separately.
*Tip* If your phone is not charging as quickly as it once did, check the charging port. Clean it gently with a paperclip. Clogged charging ports can stop a phone from efficiently charging.
Avoid using disinfecting wipes on laptop screens, some screens are made of plastic and the wipes can seriously harm them. Use a wipe to clean the outside and the keyboard. For screens, use a soft towel and isopropyl alcohol.
This is also the time to clean all your technology accessories. Don't forget to clean mice, headphones, TV remotes, game consoles, and styli. Use a disinfecting wipe or an alcohol solution to clean.
