    i wouldnt reccomend that.. actually you could just wipe it with a clean piece of cloth and some small ammount of any alcohol containing liquid

    I use my damp hand towel every morning to get the finger prints off.

    I would think a can of air would work for blowing lint out of the bottom. I would make sure you keep it upright and at a distance. You should probably do a test blast each time before you blow it on the phone. I just blow on it using the same rules (upright and at a distance).

    Put it in the dishwasher, but don't add soap. Soap is no good for it.

    I just throw mine in with the laundry, however if it is really dirty I will stick it in the dishwasher.






    OH, P.S. This was a joke, if you are dumb enough to do that , its not my fault.

    I just had to add that incase.

    Don't forget if you use the dishwasher top rack only.

    I posted this a while ago, but do not use any alcohol or ammonia products. It eats away at the glass and case which makes it weaker and more prone to cracks. I just use a couple of drops of water on a microfiber cloth and then wipe the phone cleans.

    I use hydrogen peroxide, though I don't use it directly on the phone, I use it to disinfect my screen that has a shield on it and my speck candy shell.
