How To Clean Your Phone Case Rubber

Share This:

Rubber phone cases are a great way to keep your phone safe and secure. They offer a cushiony layer of protection against falls, scratches, and dirt. However, rubber phone cases require regular cleaning to keep them in tip-top shape. Luckily, it’s easy to clean your rubber phone case with a few simple steps.

First, turn your phone off and remove the case from the device. Then rinse the case with warm water to remove any loose dirt or debris. Use an old toothbrush or soft cloth to scrub away any stubborn stains or grime that may be present on the case. For tougher stains, mix equal parts baking soda and water until it forms a paste, and use this paste to scrub away the stain. Rinse off the paste with warm water once you’re done scrubbing.

Once you’ve removed all grime from your rubber phone case, it’s time for a deep clean. Fill up a bowl with warm water and add a squirt of dish soap or liquid detergent to it. Dip an old toothbrush into the soapy solution and gently scrub away any remaining dirt on your phone case. Rinse off the soap with warm water when you’re done scrubbing and dry off your case with a soft cloth or towel until no moisture remains on the surface.

Finally, use rubbing alcohol (or vodka) on a microfiber cloth to give your rubber phone case an extra shine and shine-boosting finish! Rubbing alcohol will help remove any lingering germs or bacteria from your device while also helping give it that sparkling new look!

By following these simple steps, you can easily clean your rubber phone case in no time at all! Don’t forget to repeat these steps every month or two for maximum protection against dirt and grime build-up!

Cleaning Silicone Rubber

To clean silicone rubber, start by wiping down the item with a damp cloth or sponge to remove any dirt and debris. If there are any stubborn stains, you can use mild dish soap and warm water to create a sudsy solution. Use the cloth or sponge to apply the sudsy solution to the stained area, and gently scrub it in a circular motion. Rinse the area well and let it air dry. For tougher stains, you may need to use an abrasive cleaner or scouring pad; however, these should only be used as a last resort since they can damage the nonstick qualities of silicone rubber. After cleaning, make sure to rinse off any remaining soap residue and let the item air dry before using it again.

Cleaning a Clear Rubber Phone Case

To make a clear rubber phone case look new again, you will need to clean it with some basic supplies. Start by laying the empty phone case on a towel and sprinkling baking soda all over it. Grab a spare toothbrush that has been dampened with water and start scrubbing the baking soda in and around the case. This will help remove any dirt or debris that has accumulated on the case. Once you have finished scrubbing, rinse away the baking soda under running water. Finally, use a soft cloth to dry off the phone case before placing it back on your phone.

Cleaning a Silicone Phone Case

To get the dirt off a silicone phone case, start by mixing warm water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid in a cup. Stir until the soap is completely dissolved and the mixture is slightly foamy. Then use a clean toothbrush to gently scrub the case. Start from one side and move to the other, applying light pressure so as not to damage the material. Rinse off any excess soap with warm water afterward and then dry your case with a soft cloth or paper towel.

Cleaning Rubber with Rubbing Alcohol

Rubbing alcohol can be used to clean rubber, but it is not recommended. Exposure to rubbing alcohol may cause discoloration and deterioration of the rubber over time, and prolonged usage can damage it. To clean rubber surfaces safely and effectively, use mild soap or detergent and warm water instead.


To conclude, phone case rubber is a great material to use for phone cases. It is durable, lightweight, and offers protection as well as style. It can be easily cleaned with warm soapy water or baking soda and a toothbrush. Additionally, it should never be cleaned with abrasive cleaners or scouring pads as these will damage the rubber’s non-stick properties. With proper care and cleaning, your phone case rubber can last for many years and keep your device safe from damage.
