As the COVID-19 situation continues to worsen in Pakistan, it is necessary for everyone to take the needed precautionary measures.

The virus, other than physical contact, can also spread when interacting with surfaces on which it lives. For this reason, you must clean all your gadgets, including your mobile phones, laptops, and even headphones.

It is recommended that you disinfect your headphones, Airpods, or any other headset before using them. Although they might be among your most-used accessories, they have been the most neglected ones when it comes to the disinfection process.

Here is how you can disinfect your headphones:

If you are cleaning the speakers of gaming controller grilles, use a cotton swab and put isopropanol or gel-based alcohol on it. But for the exterior and charging case, a microfiber cloth will also do the job. The residue can be cleaned using a q-tip or toothpick.

Although companies are coming up with waterproof models, it is still advised that you keep your headphones away from any kind of liquid to avoid damage. Similarly, alcohol or cleaning liquid should be sprayed on a cloth or cotton swab beforehand and not directly on the gadget.

Things to NOT do while cleaning your gadgets:

  • Do not spray water directly on your headphones or clean them with water and soap, as it will cause damage to them.
  • Using a paper towel or tissue paper is also unadvised since they can be harsh.
  • Do not apply too much pressure on the gadget that you are cleaning.

Disinfecting your headphones is necessary since they come in contact with your face often, making you more vulnerable to the virus.
