  1. Leather case: You can wipe up the leather with a piece of cloth with water and a mild hand soap mixture as excess soap could damage the leather. You can also replace the soap mix with a mild cleaner to remove more unyielding dirt.
  2. Plastic, silicone or rubber: Immerse the case in dish soap and warm water mix for some minutes. For tougher stains, brush them off with a toothbrush. After this, dry out the case with a piece of microfiber cloth.
  3. Wood: Remember not to use water to clean the wood or it will be damaged. Simply use microfiber cloth to wipe it regularly.
