Do you regularly wipe down your electronics such as phones, iPads and keyboards? Lots of friends I’ve spoken to don’t think to do this on a regular basis, and yet our devices can be hotbeds for germ and bacterial growth. Gross! Giving them a quick clean with a wipe is a simple way to help maintain a better level of hygiene.

  • I am a stickler for this type of cleaning so much so that at various workplaces bosses would only use my equipment as they knew it was cleaned and wiped down regularly Lol they also went out of their way to tell me when they had used them in case I wanted to clean them after they’d used it. It amazes me how people casually disregard or don’t notice just how often they touch there devices with soiled hands.
