How to clean your phone

How to properly clean your phone

    There are few things you hold more than your phone during the day.  Without proper cleaning, it can be a breeding ground for germs. While you're washing your hands countless times a day to try to ward off the coronavirus, you should also occasionally clean your phone, especially if you share it.

Tests done by scientists show that the virus can live for two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The CDC recommends cleaning all "high-touch" surfaces daily, including phones, keyboards, and tablet computers. 

Cleaning your phone improperly can damage it. You want to avoid getting moisture inside it or scratching the surface. Don't spray cleaners directly on the phone, don't spray it with compressed-air devices used to clean keyboards, and avoid rubbing it with abrasive materials. Here's how to do it:

Turn off the phone and unplug all cables. Your phone shouldn't be charging as you clean.

You can use Clorox wipes or wipes with 70% alcohol to wipe down your phone. Apple, which has cautioned against using household cleaners on its phones, says to do that β€œgently.” 

AT&T has further recommended wringing out disinfectant wipes before using them on a phone. You can also use soft cloths to clean the phone, like a microfiber cleaning cloth or the cloths used to clean your glasses.

Pennsylvania liquor stores set to close amid coronavirus pandemic

You think there was a run on toilet paper??? 

      The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has announced a phased closure of "State" liquor stores in several counties in southeastern Pennsylvania as part of efforts to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

All fine wine and spirits stores will close Tuesday until further notice, causing long lines as people rushed to stock up.

"What the fuck," said one well-know partaker of the spirits.

"You gotta be shitting me," said another.

"Good. They shouldn't be drinking in the first place," said yet another.

The governor of Pennsylvania has also ordered all non-essential businesses, including bars, recreation centers, salons, and golf courses to close until further notice.

"The silliest decision to make, because the state would make so much money because people have nothing to do, so they would come to the liquor store and drink," said another customer.
