Something happens with mobile phones that also happens with smartwatches, but not with many other devices. It happens that we carry them all day, we touch them all the time and we support them everywhere. And they get very dirty. This is normal, but it is that mobiles are enemies of water by their own construction, which complicates its maintenance. Keep them clean, speaking clearly.
So we are going to give you some tips to be able to clean your mobile from the outside without suffering damage. Without scratching the screen, without damaging the buttons or without applying water, which can accidentally end up inside our Xiaomi and then we better have a budget for a repair or to buy a new one.
As we have told you, cleaning the mobile is a problem when water comes into play. Water produces corrosion when it comes into contact with the internal circuits of any mobile phone, and Xiaomi are not exempt. A special case is mobile phones with water resistance but let’s remember that this resistance is lost over time, and that any mobile phone is susceptible to “drowning”. But here we have a powerful ally, alcohol.
Alcohol is not only a powerful disinfectant product but also does not corrode and does not leave traces when evaporating. That is why it is ideal for cleaning our mobile on the outside. We soak a soft cloth in alcohol and we can proceed to clean the phone thoroughly, which will not suffer any damage. Remember at this point that you have to avoid using kitchen paper. The kitchen paper contains fiberglass and that will scratch the screen of our mobile.
What if I don’t have alcohol at home? Ethyl alcohol, of course, the kind you have in a medicine cabinet. Don’t go using a bottle of rum. If you don’t have alcohol at home, you do. Bath cologne, for example, is an excellent substitute for alcohol. pure (or almost pure). You can dip the rag in cologne and use it as a cleaning fluid. And as a gift, your mobile will smell good for at least a few hours. It’s not little.
Regarding mobile buttons, which tend to accumulate dirt on the edges, it is best to use the same alcohol, but in this case, not a cloth, but rather a toothbrush. If it is soft bristles, better. You can also use a small brush if painting is one of your hobbies. This will also help you clean the charging port of the phone and even the speakers. As we have said, the alcohol evaporates and leaves no residue. It is perfect.
Well, what about the camera lenses? You can use the same method as for the screen, a cloth with alcohol or cologne. But if you want to be even more delicate, any glasses cleaning cloth it can serve you. They are designed not to cause damage to the glass, and that is the coating of your Xiaomi’s camera. A little steam, a few passes and you will have the camera clean as a whistle.
These are some tricks, which we consider to be the best. You can use others that you know, if you want, but remember that Do not use anything to clean the screen that could scratch it.. That includes kitchen paper and other rough fabrics. And to clean the ports you should not use anything that could damage them, so avoid introducing objects into them as much as possible. At most, one pass with the toothbrush. Xiaomi has a system for cleaning speakers, by the way, an automatic one. You can put it into practice because it works.
