It is obviously important for us to continue to use cell phones and keyboards on a daily basis, but are the germs of our concern? Of course they are! So, how do we take care of this issue? There are a few efficient and effective ways to maintain your health and to keep things clean. Some suggestions include Clorox wipes, ultraviolet light cleaners and rubbing alcohol on soft tissue.
