With the spread of the novel coronavirus, you are probably asking yourself, “How can I keep my gadgets germ-free?”
Disinfecting wipes are fine, for the most part
Studies have shown everything from staph to e. Coli can thrive on your devices. Experts say that depending upon the surface and various conditions, COVID-19 can survive on surfaces for anywhere from a few hours to over a week. Apple has recently reported on their website that, “Using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, you may gently wipe the exterior surfaces of your iPhone. Don’t use bleach. Avoid getting moisture in any openings, and don’t submerge your iPhone in any cleaning agents."
