Tips to Remove Smudges from the Surface of the Touch Screen of Smartphone

You require only the following to clean the surface of your smartphone screen.

Microfiber Cloth – I hope you already have the microfiber cloth with you. It comes with spectacles, laptop etc. for its glass cleaning purpose. If you don’t have one you must buy it.

Distilled Water – You can either buy distilled water or make distilled water at home.

How to make distilled water at home?

This is off topic still I mention the procedure below for your easiness.

You can very easily make distilled water at home. The process is boiling some pure water and condensate the steam into another container. You can adapt your own method to create distilled water at home. The simplest way to create distilled water at home is as below.

Take some water in a stainless steel pot. Put another relatively small empty stainless steel pot inside the big pot and it should be floating on the surface of the water inside the big pot. Cover the big pot with a stainless steel lid.

Now boil the water in the big pit. When the water boils, steam begin to come out. Put some ice cubes on the lid. So the steam got condensate and will fall down to the small pot, which is empty, inside the big pot. Let the water boil enough time. Later take out the small pot and make the water inside it cool. It is the distilled water.

Now to the Steps to Remove Smudges from the Touch Screen Surface of Your Screen

Switch off your phone.

Apply the microfiber cloth on the screen with a small circular movements. Only make a feather touch.

If still smudges are there put few drops of distilled water on the micro fiber cloth. Wipe away the smudges by moving the cloth smoothly in circular movements over the screen.

That’s all. Now you can see the screen of your phone glowing. Apply the cleaning occasionally.
