St. Louis (KSDK) -- It's important to clean your dirty cell phone, especially during flu season.

You don't want to drench your cell phone with just any kind of spray cleaner.  Never spray directly on the phone because it can cause water damage.

Since it is flu season, you might want to use more than just window cleaner on it.  Look for an antibacterial cleaner meant for electronics.

"You want to make sure that it's 99.9 percent going to kill the germs, that it's an antibacterial going to kill the germs, and two., when you can, find one that's specific for electronics, so that it has some antistatic." said Chris Phillips from CPR Cell Phone Repair.  "And just lightly wipe the device, all sides, around the ears, any place that your hands are touching it and those germs are collecting"
