With so many people working remotely, it’s no surprise that folks are used to having headsets on or earbuds in. With increased use, these devices naturally get dirtier than they would otherwise. Let’s take a look at how you might go about cleaning them.
Unsurprisingly, the human ear can get pretty nasty. Between all of the sweat and earwax they suffer through, your earbuds can accumulate all sorts of bacteria that could potentially put your health at risk. You have to keep your earbuds clean if you want to keep this from happening. There are different methods of cleaning headsets or earbuds, depending on the type you use.
