We interact with our mobile device thousands of times every day and often press it to our faces, which means that any bacteria, virus or other germs that are on your phone could transfer to your skin. Regularly disinfecting your smartphone will help lower your overall risk of getting ill.
Germs can live on hard surfaces and transfer to your hands. As a general rule, clean your Cat phone as often as your hands to avoid transferring germs between the two.
Washing your device
All Cat phones are rugged and can be cleaned effectively, at the same time as you wash your hands.
- Simply lather the phone itself with warm soapy water, rinse it under the tap or submerge it entirely in soapy water.
Note: Before washing your phone, unplug all external power sources, devices, cables and ensure all ports covers and the SIM door are firmly closed, this ensures you avoid getting any excess moisture into any openings.
- If your phone is in need of a deeper clean. You can apply anti-bacterial spray, or wipe all external surfaces of the phone using alcohol wipes widely available, again ensuring all cables are unplugged and all ports are firmly closed.
- You can use a soft, lint-free cloth or towels, paper towels, disinfecting wipes or similar items without worrying about excessive wiping causing damage to the screen or any other part of the phone.
- For a deep clean you can also bleach your Cat smartphone. Incorporate this with your household regime, for example when you bleach the kitchen sink, add your phone into the mix, again ensuring all cables are unplugged and all ports are firmly closed.
Note: Do not use bleach with your Cat feature phone.
