    RemotesThe TV remote control is perhaps one of the most germ-ridden items in your home. Every member of a home uses the remote while watching TV, but no one actually thinks about cleaning it. The fact is that so many people are touching the single remote control and makes it a perfect germ factory. Moreover, any member suffering from flu can pass on the dangerous virus to other family members through this remote control if it is not cleaned properly on regular basis.

    Tips to keep your remote control germ free:

    Sanitizers are not very much useful for cleaning of remote controls, as you canít get the cleaner into the cracks. So, the best way to keep the remote away from germs is to use a plastic-sleeve protective covering for it. By getting such a cover for your remote control, you can always maintain the correct hygiene standards by cleaning the cover with the help of a disinfecting wipe. However, make sure to clean it on daily basis to make your remote 100 percent clean and germ free.

    Earphones
    You will be absolutely surprised to know that your earphones that fits inside your ear can actually harbor dirt, your ear wax, sweat particles, and even bacteria & viruses. Whenever you put in the headphones to enjoy music, all germs and viruses would jump into your ears from the device and they can cause really bad ear infections. As per the research conducted by the National Institute of Health, wearing earphones for a duration of just 1 hour can significantly increase the germ level in your ears by nearly 700 times.

    Tips to keep your earphones germ free:

    Avoid sharing your earphones with any one else, as sharing of headphones can result in passing of various illness causing germs from one person to other. The simplest way to make your earphones dirt-free is to simply clean your earbuds using a simple soap solution. A few earbuds comes with detachable & replaceable silicone covers. If you are having such earphones then remove the cover and clean it separately. Never submerge it in water, instead simply running them under tap water even for a second would be more than enough.

    Towels
    Your bathroom towels donít just absorb the moisture from your body; they absorb your germs too. Each time you use a towel, numerous skin cells from your body would stick to the fabric of the towel. These cells in turn would serve as food for bacteria. Whatís even more problematic is the multiplication of bacteria on the towelís wet and warm surface, if it is not dried properly. Now, as you reuse those towels, all these bacteria will transfer back to your body causing various types of skin infections.

    Tips to keep your bath towels germ free:

    After every use just wash your towels to keep them clean. Hang your towels in such a manner as to maximize their drying, thus consider using a towel bar rather than a hook. Secondly, donít ever share your towels with anybody. For this, the best way is to buy different colored towels for each family member, so that you donít accidently exchange your towels with other members.
