    Don't ask me how (I wash my hands regularly I swear), but my iPhone can get mighty dirty. I think partly because I drink a lot of coffee and the caffeine and coffee goodness weeps through my pores lol

    But seriously, what cleaning tips or products do you recommend to keep your phone in tip-top, clean condition? I have some microfibre cloths I keep around, and have tried products like WHOOSH before...

    Just wondering what you think. Perhaps the answer is I should stop drinking coffee. Problem solved

    I don't do much to my phones but the glass I keep clean with glasses cleaner from an opticaI store with the soft lens cleaning cloths they all supply. I know someone who was using GM Window cleaner on their iPad before I warned them about the harsh solvents it has to cut through bugs and tar for a car windshield!!!!! Big NO NO.


    What I would like to know is how to clean the silicone iPad smart covers because my green one shows some black areas and I also wash my hands

    Also if anyone has tips for the silicone iPhone cases and how to clean those as well?

    WHOOSH and microfiber cloth.

    As for the above for iPhone silicone case, any damp cloth or screen cleaner would work as well.

    Stay away from harsh stuff.

    I typically use a microfiber cloth dampened with either water or a non-harsh windows cleaner. I've never heard of the product Whoosh, but I plan to check it out. Thanks for the tip. ...

    I'm cased so the back it always flawless. I have an tempered glass SP on on so when I need to remove fingerprints I just wipe it with whatever shirt I'm wearing.

    I use a product called iKlear. I take my phone out of the case once a week and I give it a good wipe down. iKlear comes with two microfiber cloths; one to use when wet and the other after you've wiped the phone down. Also works really well for removing fingerprints from my tempered glass.

    Always used Spray-Way (ammonia free) glass cleaner or a damp cloth daily.

    I neglected to add that I also use Zeiss Lens Cleaning "pre-moistened" wipes that I buy in bulk at walmart when I'm out and about!

    I use a dry microfiber cloth. A few times when I needed more I used one of those pre-moistened wipes for glasses. I've never heard of Whoosh before but I plan on checking it out. Thanks for the tip.

    What is this Whoosh you all speak of? Have never heard of it. I just use a soft cloth and some windex. Once in awhile I'll take my case off and wipe down the whole dang thing.

    Whoosh is actually a Canadian product that is also sold in U S and is safe non toxic cleaner for cell phones ,tv screens .computer screens and I use it on my glasses they say it leaves a small coating on screen to repel fingerprints and comes with a special micro fibre cloth, however I find it a very good product , better than the cheap cleaner I used to use if you can find it at your local Costco it is a very good buy.How to keep your iPhone clean!-s0847161_sc7.jpg
