The world is a pretty gross place, so it's important to keep as much of it clean as you possibly can, particularly the items you have on you all of the time, such as your iPhone. With a few simple pieces of equipment, you can assemble your own iPhone cleaning kit, and keep your device clean for years to come.

Your iPhone should now be clean as a whistle. Probably cleaner, actually. That whistle's probably been in your mouth.

Rubbing alcohol should be a staple of any cleaning kit, and this 70% solution from Mountain Falls will do the trick when it comes to keeping your iPhone germ-free.

You won't ever use a lot of isopropyl alcohol each time you clean, but this six-pack of 32 oz. bottles will keep you stocked for a long time.

Cotton swabs are a great choice for cleaning the harder-to-reach areas of your iPhone, like around buttons and in speaker grills. It's also a bit of a gentler approach compared to using a toothpick.

Narrow-tipped cotton swabs make it easier to clean in areas like speaker grills, where the narrow grill holes might prevent standard swabs from getting all the way in.

Speaking from considerable experience, a toothpick is a great tool for cleaning out hard-to-reach spots on your iPhone, especially the Lightning port. When there's a stubborn piece of dust or grit somewhere on your phone, a toothpick will get it out 99% of the time.

Having a collection of toothpicks is an essential part of any gadget cleaning kit. If you've ever been unable to charge your iPhone because a piece of lint was stuck deep in your Lightning port, you should know that a toothpick will be thin enough to get it out of there without doing a lot of damage to the port itself.

A microfiber cloth like these from AmazonBasics is an absolute must. It won't cause any abrasions to your device and wipe off everything from grime to fingerprints.

AmazonBasics has become a reliable brand for decent products at low prices. Getting a six pack of microfiber cloths is a good idea, as you'll probably want at least two for each cleaning session (one for wiping down your phone with cleaner, one for wiping everything off when you're done)

Whatever gadget you're cleaning, it helps to have a can of compressed air around. Using it should be the first step in any cleaning project, just to make sure you get anything loose out of the way.

This two-pack of Dust-Off will keep your iPhone cleaning kit stocked through multiple cleaning sessions, and keep unwanted dust and dirt out of your iPhone with just a couple of quick sprays.

Whoosh! is a non-toxic cleaner that you can use on your iPhone's screen without worry. It's also safe to use on glasses, so there's that, too.
