  • Turn off the smartphone, cleaning should only take place in a smartphone condition that is not active.
  • Don’t forget to wash your hands first, because it’s useless to continue this tutorial if your hands are still dirty.
  • If you use a protective case, remove the smartphone from the case. Don’t forget to clean the case too.
  • Prepare a microfiber cloth, soap and water. Dissolve the soap in water and dip a microfiber cloth in the solution.
