First and foremost, don’t throw your SD card around without thinking twice about it. Also, when you’re inserting it into your device and taking it out, try to be as gentle as possible and don’t just yank it out. The better you treat your SD card, the longer it will last so be nice!

USE THE PLASTIC CASE

Most manufacturers will offer you a small plastic case or sleeve with your SD card. We can assure you that the manufacturer gave you the case for a reason and does not have a penchant for wasting its money. That case is provided so you can keep your SD card protected from dust and other environmental factors. Half of the work is done for you as you don’t have to find a case for yourself, so just use it!
