Samsung warning: How cleaning your Galaxy phone could damage it permanently

While these might be useful in keeping communal spaces around the home hygienic, these solutions can peel off or damage the oleophobic coating layer over your smartphone’s display that shields the screen from fingerprint smudging.

Another top tip is to be sure to fully power down your device and remove its case, cables and other accessories.

Once you have done this, use a lint-free microfibre cloth to wipe down the exterior of the device.

If needed, you can use a small amount of distilled water or disinfectant, such as a hypochlorous acid-based (50-80ppm) or alcohol-based (over 70% ethanol or isopropyl alcohol) product – but always apply these to your cloth, not directly to the phone, and be sure to avoid getting any liquid in openings such as the charging or headphone ports.
