Clean 'em.

I always read blog. Something caught my eye the other day that I thought I should share, and it has nothing to do with hair tutorials or what brush to use. IT IS ABOUT BACTERIA and GERMS!
"Dear everyone,
It’s the weekend. We hope you’re going to be doing something fun and exciting. Know what’s not fun and exciting? The fact that bacteria collects on the surface of your phone while in your purse. That bacteria makes it’s way to your face and causes blackheads, blemishes + sometimes full breakouts. It’s like rubbing your face in the bottom of your handbag! Ew. Interestingly, skin care experts + dermatologists can usually tell which side you use most when talking on the phone. Take a quick minute to wipe it down with a dab rubbing alcohol on a cloth! It will kill the bacteria and save you a lot of time in the long run!

I was really good about doing this- I take a Lysol wipe and clean my phone and ear-buds for the iPod. Now I just get too busy to even think about it. I MUST remember from now on. I leave my phone everywhere. I sit it in the shopping cart seat, in car seats and consoles, it sits on counters at the bank, etc. Then it goes straight to my face all day long. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! 


  1. I agree..I am a stickler for a clean phone - cell or home.

  2. Yes! It's so gross to think about everything on there! yuck is right.

  3. I just started wiping my phone off every day again! It's so gross when you stop to think about it. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. Thanks for the tip and reminder, Samantha! Once in a while, I only clean it with a damp cloth. Now, I will remember to use alcohol to clean my phone!


  5. This is true—sometimes thinking about germs can really get to a person, but it makes perfect sense to clean things like this as often as we use it... hmm, maybe a case is a great plan after all!

    Hope you're having a fabulous weekend.
    xx, Sarah
