Protecting Your Phone at the Beach or Pool

In today’s world of rapidly evolving technology, it’s no wonder many of us are so consumed in it. We tend to bring our cell phones almost everywhere, including places where damage can easily occur. For this time of year, two of the most dangerous places for your cell phone is the beach and the pool. Luckily, there are plenty of easy tips and tricks to keep your cell phone safe. We all know the obvious waterproof options, but what about those of us who prefer our traditional cases without spending the extra buck? After all, you don’t want to miss out on the chance to document your summery experiences on Instagram!

Plastic Zip Lock Bag

The great thing about this trick is that you already have the bags out for your sandwiches. There’s no need to buy an expensive product if you only plan on checking it every once in a while. Another benefit is the fact that it’s clear because you can see right through it. While in the plastic bag, your phone will remain dry and free of sand grains and sunscreen smudges. Avoiding contact with liquid is one of the many ways to preserve the value of your phone. If you plan on opening the bag for a quick text or a photo, wipe your hands on a fresh towel or napkin. The goal is to keep your cell phone clean, but this cannot be done without a clean bag as well. Remember, it’s even possible for sand to find its way into those heavy-duty cases. You can never be too prepared.

Handheld Fan

A handheld fan is easy to travel with and it’s the perfect helper if your phone overheats. Electronic devices can only take so much heat, making the sun at the beach or the pool a threat to your phone. It’s advised to keep it out of direct sunlight, either by keeping it in a closed bag or underneath an item of clothing. When the phone is in proper shade, its temperature stays regulated. If your phone does overheat, you may see a message on the screen or it may just shut down. A handheld fan can help to cool it down again before putting it somewhere safe.

Dust Plug

Whether you go for a stylish option or one that is strictly for function, a dust plug is helpful, especially at the beach. A dust plug is for protecting the earphone jack from not only dust and dirt, but sand as well. Head to the beach or pool with the peace of knowing your phone isn’t at risk of being clogged. This affordable option fits tight inside the phone, ensuring the plug will not fall out or get lost.

Hiding Spot

This doesn’t necessarily fall under the same umbrella of safety as the other tips and tricks, but it doesn’t make it less important. If you plan on leaving your cell phone while you go for a dip in the water, it’s best to have someone stand by. If this isn’t an option, it’s a good idea to have a hiding spot. Avoid leaving your phone in an obvious compartment in your bag and go for something unique. Ideas include washing out an old sunscreen bottle and sliding your phone inside or an empty snack container. The same can be done for your money and car keys.

With all of these tips and tricks in mind, you should also remember to take a break from your phone every now and then. If it’s a safety concern, switch off with a friend or family member – one day you can bring and they can bring the next. Also, just because you’re by the pool, it doesn’t mean you have to float around with your phone. Leave it on a nearby table and enjoy swimming!

Since this is easier said than done for many people, it’s good to know the mentioned tips and tricks. You probably already have some of these items at home. Therefore, you’re saving money by utilizing items you already have, as well as saving money by keeping your phone unharmed.
