1. We use our phones so much it has become unconscious. My phone case designs transform the phone into an object with a body and texture. When we interact with an object that has a body, we can see it as separate from ourselves, and maybe even transform our relationship to the phone.
2. The ergonomic designs are meant to feel good in your hand, making the phone easier to grip and give you infinite holding options.
3.The standing features of all my phone case designs make everyday tasks easier. Whether its cooking, reading, watching a show or clip, it's better when the phone isn't flat.
4. It looks great on a table or desk, and you will never lose it.
5. That said, its not for everyone and that’s OK. For the right people, I’m so excited for you to find these phone cases and let them change the way you use your phone forever.
5. Lastly, We use our phones more than any other object that has ever existed. Bottom line, we need more design diversity to support the infinite ways that we use our phones. Do you have one pair of shoes you use for every activity? No I didn’t think so.

"Our phones are dirtier than a toilet seat" I'm sure you've heard this quote. As a phone case designer, I am constantly battling the fact that we can use and abuse our phones. That said, I am happy to say, if your case gets dirty, it means you are using it. So, here are some tips:
1. Clean your case regularly. Oils from our fingers build up and we don't see it. Taking your case off and washing it regularly, is the best way to keep your case from getting dirty.
2. Use warm water, dish soap and the scrubby side of the spounge. Dish soap that cuts grease, like Dawn, is best, it's what I use in my studio for any tough stains.
3. If stains don't seem to be coming out, try rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Careful not to use too much alcohol as it can dry out the material.
4. If all else fails, email info[@]baileyhikawa.com. You can send us images of confusing or tough stains and we are happy to help trouble shoot.
This is officially the most common question for these phone cases. The answer is, they will fit in some pockets and not others. Pockets come in many different sizes. These phone cases are designed for your hand, not your pocket. #getatote
