2.- We will use a mixture of alcohol and water in equal parts that we will pour into a spray bottle.
3.- We will use a soft touch cloth or a disposable cotton wipe that we will moisten in the mixture that we have previously prepared. We should not overdo it when it comes to soaking the cloth.
4.- Once we have the wipe ready, we will pass it over the entire surface of the ‘smartphone’. Always be careful not to rub the logos or the printed parts with force.
5.- With a second soft and disposable cloth, if possible, and avoiding towels or other textile materials that can generate residues, we will dry the device carefully.
