6 Things You Touch Every Day That You Never Clean

But you should, and here is how!

Does this sound like you? You carry hand sanitizer in your purse, you always remember to wash your hands, and you squat over the toilet in public bathrooms. But what if you found out you were handling a germ magnet every day, multiple times, without a second thought? And what if that thing has probably NEVER been cleaned?! The DIRTY LIST is the list of things we touch every day but never clean and here’s how you clean them!

The Dirty List

Keys
How to Clean Them:

  1. Remove car remotes, decorative keychains
  2. Dip in soapy water
  3. Scrub with a toothbrush
  4. Dip in water
  5. Dry

Headphones
How to Clean Them:

  1. Wipe using a damp cloth (not too wet though, these are not waterproof!)
  2. Rub lightly with Q-tip
  3. Wipe with micro-fibre cloth

Keyboard
How to Clean it:

  1. Use a mini vacuum to remove crumbs or dust. This one is wet dry so it works for accidental spills!
  2. Use a cleaning gel…. its gross but it works! It’s biodegradable and not sticky on your hands. Knead into a ball, press into the surface and peel away. Can be used again and again until it turns into a dark colour. (Do not wash)

Cell Phone
How to Clean it:

  1. This UV cell phone cleaner disinfects your phone. It kills 99.9% of bacteria without heat or chemicals. It can also be used for earphone, credit cards, or keys! Plus you can charge your phone while you clean it!
  2. A screen cleaning kit with microfibre cloth is non-toxic, and doesn’t scratch. It’s great for eyeglasses too!

Toothbrush Holder
How to Clean it:

  1. Use soapy water and a cloth. Avoid household cleaners that can pass on to the toothbrush. If you have an electric toothbrush, make sure to clean the handle on it frequently. Avoid holders that you can’t get into and clean.

Purse
How to Clean it:

  1. Use mild soap and water on a soft cloth to gently wipe the exterior of the purse. Make sure to test it first on a small spot and wipe it dry.
