It is recommended to wipe down phone surfaces frequently with an alcohol wipe. Do the same for wristwatches, TV remotes, earphones and computer mice. Do remember to check if the materials used on these devices are corrosive to alcohol. If they are, it is better to use a non-alcohol based sanitising fluid.
