We’ve talked before about how disgusting smartphone screens generally are, and now Digital Trends has put together a nice quick posts that go over how to clean them.

Just as important, the blog also covers things you should definitely avoid when cleaning your smartphone. For example, Purell is great for cleaning your hands quickly in a in pinch, but you shouldn’t use alcohol-based cleaners on your smartphone. Instead, use a piece of scotch tape to lift off most of the grease and grime, and then use a microfiber cloth to finish the job.
