Can you use toothpaste to clean the screen of your smartphone

On the Internet, you can often come across recommendations on the perfect cleanliness of the smartphone screen, which mention toothpaste as an effective means of removing dirt.

It is noted that the toothpaste supposedly perfectly cleans the display of the gadget from any dirt and can even remove serious damage such as scratches and cracks.

But does toothpaste really have these incredible properties?


We hurry to upset users: this hygiene product is not designed to clean the surface of the smartphone.

Moreover, the paste can cause serious damage to the mobile phone screen.

Why the toothpaste trick and cannot be repeated with a smartphone

Of course, a hygienic product will be able to remove dirt.

However, together with greasy traces, the paste will partially remove the protective layer from the display – oleophobic coating.

As a result, the screen will become even more vulnerable to contamination.

As for scratches, toothpaste will not be able to remove or mask them.

So use this dangerous life hack is not worth it.
