Clear phone cases are awesome — especially if you chose your phone because of its original coloring. Seafoam green, metallic gold, space gray, there's plenty of options out there. Why wouldn't you want to show it off with a simple clear case? You get all the protection with none of the frills.
However, there's no denying the obvious downside of clear cases. Keeping them clean can be a bit of a nightmare. Don't worry! It isn't an impossible task, and we’re about to tell you exactly how to do it.
Let Casely walk you through the most effective steps for keeping your clear phone case pristine.
Let's get into it!
Warm Water and Dish Soap Goes a Long Way
Granted, using dish soap on your phone case probably doesn't sound wise initially, but you may be surprised by just how effective it can be. It's so easy, too! All you need to do is mix one cup of warm water with a few drops of dish soap. You don't need too much, as this could actually dry out your case and damage it.
If you really want to take your cleaning to the next level, use a toothbrush to scrub your case. Brushing will really work the dish soap in to get rid of any unsightly discoloration and bacteria that may have accumulated. Once you're done, make sure to leave your clear phone case to air dry for at least one hour before putting it back on your phone.
Not Enough? Try Baking Soda!
If dish soap isn't doing the trick, it might be time to try something a little stronger. Baking soda may be the answer. It isn't nearly as intimidating as it may sound. All you need to do is wet your toothbrush and sprinkle some baking soda over your case, then get to work!
Once you think you're done, just rinse away any leftover baking soda with warm water, and your case should be crystal.
Still not satisfied?
Try the dish soap idea in collaboration with your baking soda. That should do the trick.
The Last Resort: Rubbing Alcohol
If you're still at a loss and dealing with some pretty foul discoloration, it's time to bring out the big guns. Rubbing alcohol is the perfect answer to stubborn yellowness and is honestly just a good antibacterial in general. If you ever start to feel like your phone case could do with a deep cleanse, reach for the rubbing alcohol.
Just remember to use a dry, clean cloth to wipe off the excess once you're done. The last thing your phone needs is a dose of rubbing alcohol, but your clear phone case could benefit from some. A crucial distinction!
It Might be Time for a New Case
If you have done all the above and your clear case is still looking kinda gross, it’s probably time to spring for a new one.
