How Often Should You Clean Your TV Remote?

Have you ever cleaned your TV remote? Let’s assume you haven’t, which is probably accurate. Don’t be ashamed! It’s not exactly an item we think to clean, unlike a toilet. Just think about how many people (and pets) touch your remote and then think about what kinds of germs are on those hands. Let’s say it together: ew.

It’s a safe bet to clean your remote at least once a month. If you can see it’s really gunky, then clean it immediately. All you need is cotton swabs and rubbing alcohol. Before you do anything take the batteries out. Then, dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and gently clean around all the buttons. Once that’s done wipe down the entire remote with rubbing alcohol or electronic cleaning wipes. Put the batteries back in and you’re good to go!

A good way to prevent your remote from getting dirty is to wrap it in plastic wrap. You can even go the extra step and cover your couches in plastic…just kidding!

Don’t miss how often you should wash throw blankets and how often you should apply hand lotion!
