How to Clean a Clear Phone Case

Phone cases are the best way to shield your expensive phones from damage.  If you have a clear phone case, you will probably like it to be transparent and have a clean look.  However, clear cases quickly get scratched and dirty.

The wonderful news is that you can clean your phone’s clear case relatively easily.  All you need to do is use one of the cleaning methods below to restore your phone case.  Cleaning products are found in most homes, so you may already have everything you need.

Before cleaning the phone case, make sure you remove it from the phone.  Don’t pour baking soda into the case while it’s on the phone;  you will not harm anyone but yourself by doing this.  Here are ways how to clean a clear phone case.

Tips to clean a clear cell phone case

Light stains: liquid soap and water

Little stains and dirt can be cleaned with liquid soap and water.  First, fill a container with hot water and a few drops of dish soap.

Use a cloth or toothbrush to scrub the case with warm soapy water.  Be sure to rub hard-to-reach areas like the camera slot and any other holes.

Then rinse and repeat as required until the clear phone case is clean.  Finish by drying the case with a cloth and let it air dry for at least 1 hour before putting it back on the phone.

Medium stains: Alcohol

To clean medium stains, put a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on a soft cloth and wipe down the phone case.  As with minor stains, be sure to also clean hard-to-reach areas that are most likely to collect dirt, such as the inside edges of the case or around holes.

Once done, take a dry cloth and wipe the clear case clean.  The case should feel dry, but you should still wait at least 1 hour before putting it back on the phone.

Difficult stains: baking soda

If your clear phone case has more stubborn stains, the above two methods may not be enough.  In this case, cover the box or stained areas with baking soda.  Use a damp toothbrush to scrub any marks and stains on the clear case, including the edges.

After scrubbing all affected areas, rinse and wipe off any remaining baking soda with a cloth and allow the case to air dry for at least 1 hour.

In the end, the best way to keep your clear phone case clean is to wash it with soap and clean water once a week or with baking soda when needed.  Not only will this help you prevent your case from yellowing, but it will also help you sanitize your phone, which is especially important now with the coronavirus.

Why Clean your Clear Phone Case?

In short, there are some ways to clean the transparent phone case.  If you’ve tried all the techniques and your clear case is still dirty, it might be time to buy a new case.

Even with these tips on ways to clean a clear phone case, as soon as your phone case starts to turn yellow, it can be very difficult to reverse.  While the tips above will assist you, they are not totally foolproof solutions.  So it may be time to get a new one.
