Samsung continues to offer free phone sanitising service, not just for Galaxy phones


Did you know that your mobile phone is 10 times dirtier than a toilet seat? Thant makes it one of the dirtiest objects we come into contact with every day. Ugh. The good news is it’s easy to clean regularly, and if you’re near a Samsung Service Centre, you can get it sanitised for free. Even if you don’t own a Samsung device.

In March, Samsung started offering its free Galaxy Sanitising Service at its service centres nationwide. The sanitising service uses UV-C light which is proven to kill or inactivate dangerous bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms.

The service is available for all mobile devices, not just Samsung Galaxy phones.

The sanitising process takes just three minutes and has been tested to be safe for your devices.

Samsung also offers free sanitising for Galaxy tablet and smartwatches, but this is limited to its Gardens and Pavilion centres only.

If you’re cleaning your devices at home, Samsung recommends applying a small amount of distilled water or disinfectant such as hypochlorous acid-based (50-80ppm) or alcohol-based (over 70 per cent ethanol or isopropyl alcohol) liquid onto a microfibre cloth before wiping the device. Do not apply disinfectant directly on the glass display. This may damage the oleophobic coating on the glass. Disinfectant should also not be used on leather and rubber materials.

Alternatively, you could get your own UV-C sanitising device like PhoneSoap.
