How to use CleanSlate
Just place your device in the tray and close the lid. As CleanSlate cleans, follow the device’s prompts to sanitize your hands, then remove your device when the lid automatically re-opens.
Chemical wipes damage touchscreens and manual error may leave some areas uncleaned. Also, most wipes require you to leave the chemical solution on the surface, untouched for 2-4 minutes, to be effective.
UV light won’t harm touchscreens, cameras or IR sensors and it is best used on hard, non-porous surfaces such as smartphones. The UV-C light that CleanSlate uses disrupts the DNA and RNA of pathogens, eliminating their ability to replicate when the light reaches a surface contaminated by bacteria or viruses.
