Tips for Taking Care of Your Tech

Technology — it’s undeniably a huge part of our lives whether your device of choice is a phone, tablet, computer, laptop, something else, or a combo. But do you know how to really take care of your technology so that it endures its longest shelf-life possible?


Taking care of our technology, in the same way that we take care of our skin, our hair, and practice self-care, is important to maintaining it.

 Watch your phone’s temperature.

Apps that burn a lot of central processing units tend to make your phone overheat faster. Make sure not to use these apps — like Facebook or Pokemon Go — for an extended amount of time. Another super important way to keep your phone cool is to make sure it’s not sitting in direct sunlight for a long period of time.

 Use a Magic Eraser to fix screen cracks.

No, seriously. Magic Erasers are known for wiping away unwanted floor scuffs but they’re also great at buffing out smaller-scale scratches on phone screens.

Fix screen protector scratches with toothpaste.

A little bit of toothpaste (not the gel kind) can alleviate a plastic screen protector of scratches. Unfortunately, it won’t work for a phone screen.

Save your battery by lowering brightness.

It will make a big difference in your phone’s battery life and after a few hours, your eyes will adjust to a new, lower brightness setting.
