Knobs and Pulls
Any germs on your hands eventually end up on doorknobs and handles, so add these areas to your weekly routine. While disinfecting wipes should do the trick, fine metals like brass and silver require specialty products.
Tackle these dirt collectors once a week. All you need is hot water, dish soap and a microfiber cloth.
Keyboards are crumb and dust magnets. Instead of a liquid formula, try canned air. Or unplug the unit, then run a lightly dampened lint-free microfiber cloth over keys and into grooves to remove buildup.
Cellphones, which tend to be kept in dark pockets and purses, quickly become breeding grounds for bacteria. Touchscreen wipes remove grease and residue. Die-hard germophobes might consider PhoneSoap 2.0 ($60)—UV light sanitizes the phone while charging it.
Never use anything dripping wet on electronics. Rags should be barely damp.
