A phone case can contain dirt particles, dust particles and bacteria, so it is important that you clean your own case regularly. Fortunately, you can easily clean your phone case with soap and water.

Step 1. Take your phone out of the case

Never try to clean your phone case with your phone inside. Water can get into the openings and damage your phone. Put your phone in a place where it won't get wet.
