Clean Your Phone Case

Go-to guide to keep your LifeProof case clean from bacteria.

Whether it’s set up to track your run or send memes from the bathroom, your phone goes everywhere you go — and touches everything you touch. All those surfaces are likely alive with bacteria, which are now dancing on your phone. Luckily, keeping your LifeProof case fresh and clean is easy. Because you’ve got better things to do than get sick. Like send memes.

Wiping your phone case clean

1. Wipe your phone case with a disinfectant wipe

Grab a disinfectant wipe and gently wipe your case clean of bacteria once a day and after venturing outside of home.

2. Wash bacteria and dust away with warm water and soap

For NËXT and SLɅM, use a warm, soapy cloth to clean your case while it is on your device; making sure to avoid getting any water near the ports. If you want an extra deep clean, remove your case from your device and wash your case just like your hands – submerged in soap and warm water for 20 seconds before patting it dry with a paper towel.

3. Wash your phone, wash your hands

For those rockin' a LifeProof FRĒ, dunk that phone straight in the sink while you wash your hands and get it soapy as often as you do. (So, so often.) This will eliminate bacteria on your device.

Your phone sees all the same spots you do, and often picks up bacteria you aren’t aware of – like when you set it on a recently sneezed-on table. Frequently cleaning your LifeProof case will help keep those unwanted and unseen bacteria away so you can keep going until sunrise.
