    Hello and greetings everybody,

    I wanted to ask a question about if what I did was correct or not about how I handled my champagne gold iPhone 5S. I had eaten something greasy with my hands. Instead of washing my hands, I used hand sanitizer to cleanse my hands. After a little while, I used my champagne gold iPhone 5S. I wanted to ask you if what I did will affect the front screen, back screen and the side bands? Do you think it will damage the side bands and front/back screens? I would really appreciate all the questions, comments and concerns.

    No, it wont effect the glass or the metal.
    Why would it?
    Its only a phone, don't over analyze it and get a stroke over it:D

    I've heard that sanitized hands turn gold iPhones into lead.

    Of course he's being sarcastic.

    Nothing will happen to your phone if you use it after sanitizing your hands.

    Nah, contrary to Apple's advice, alcohol products won't hurt your Apple stuff. 99% of the time anyway. I suggest not gripping your phone with dripping wet hands, but I've cleaned the surface of my 5S with a little bit of hand sanitizer before and it was fine.

    I think so as well Tyler23.

    Thank you for your response JoeG4. I understand. My hands were fully dried when I handled my iPhone 5S. I just wanted to make sure it would not hurt my Apple product, like you have mentioned.
