Learn How To Prevent Scratches On Your Cell Phone

How To Avoid Cell Phone Scratches (courtesy of Howcast.com)

Keep your cell phone looking new with this next-to-free, protective cover, that will last longer than the original! You will need:

Ruler
Permanent marker
Clear packing tape
Scissors or a craft knife
Bowl of water
Few drops of dish soap
Credit card

Step 1: Measure your screen with a ruler, and use the marker to mark the width on the packing tape before you unroll the tape. Then, add an inch to your height measurement, and mark that on the tape.

Step 2: Cut the marked piece of tape as straight as possible. Peel it from the roll starting from the top, where the excess tape is marked. Hold the tape by the excess inch. This prevents fingerprints, and prevents the tape from getting hung up on anything.

Step 3: Submerge the piece of tape completely in a bowl of water, with a few drops of dish soap, and soak it for several seconds. Avoid making the water too sudsy.

Step 4: Make sure the tape and your hands are free from debris. Then, put a drop of water or 2 on your cellphone screen and apply the tape, sticky side down, starting at the bottom. Center the tape on the screen.

Step 5: Remove excess water and air bubbles with a credit card, using it like a squeegee. Push from the bottom to the top, then blot excess water from the screen with a tissue.

Step 6: Carefully cut off the excess tape at the top, just below the face plate surface.

Step 7: Avoid scratching other parts of your cellphone by always placing it in a separate pocket from your keys and loose change, or, in a separate compartment in your handbag.
