In today’s world, our cellphones are our most important tools and we’re quite dependent on them for our own functionality. These handy little devices help us in complex tasks like checking our location or driving to a given location without access to any physical maps, setting alarms and reminders of important meetings and business arrangements, browsing for cooking recipes, and much more. In such cases, any issue to our devices may wreck the balance of our day to day life.

Imagine that the screen of your cellphone cracked, which would make you angry and anxious at the same time as most of your work depends on it. Now, what if we could circumvent this issue with a fairly simple and cheap method.

Fixing a cracked phone screen using toothpaste

As we all know, there are many simple remedies or as people call it, “life hacks” for most of the issues related to our electronic gadgets. Some most common ones are; toothpaste, baking soda, sandpaper, replacing the screen, Sugru for broken buttons, a bowl of rice for water damage, cotton buds for headphone port problems and much more.

How To Fix A Cracked Cellphone Screen With Toothpaste

 

  • Firstly, the person executing the process needs to put towels on the table. And then place your mobile screen in such a way that it faces you.
  • Blow off the entire screen with a burst of compressed air.
  • And then wipe the edges of the screen with the help of a soft cloth for removing the entire dust gathered all around the screen. And then again, blow the screen off through compressed air.
  • Now, apply the toothpaste to the end of a cotton swab. Some excess toothpaste may be applied on the edges which needs to be removed, so remove it using a finger. And then clean your finger.
  • Hold the swab with your right hand and your cellphone on the other hand. And then put the tip covered with toothpaste on the screen from the left-hand side of the crack.
  • Press it down gently and apply it in a way that it may cover the crack completely.

 

  • When the crack is fully covered, the tip can be removed from the screen and the swab can now be thrown away.
  • Keep the cellphone aside for several minutes.
  • Finally, place a soft cloth on the screen and clean it.
  • Check if the crack is still visible on-screen or not. In most cases, the crack disappears after executing this process correctly but if it is still visible, then repeat all the steps again with complete attention and care.
