Can I use hand sanitizer to clean my phone?

How do you disinfect your cell phone?
Distilled water and isopropyl alcohol will help disinfect your cell phone. The microfiber cloth will make your phone shine but it won’t disinfect your phone should someone sneeze all over it.
Can you clean your phone with a wipe?
Lightly dampen the corner of a soft, lint-free cloth, microfiber cloth or cotton square with the water and alcohol mix. Don’t apply or spray the mix directly onto your phone. Gently wipe your phone with the cloth to kill unwanted bacteria. Use the dry corner of cloth to remove any excess on your phone.
