Just about everyone uses technology, but how do you clean these items so you don't get sick from germs? For items like a keyboard, mouse, laptop or pair of headphones, grab regular rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs -- they'll do the trick to remove grime and dirt. But for anything with a touch screen, it becomes trickier because alcohol can interfere with the surface. Instead, place those items in a freezer bag and in your freezer for an hour to kill the germs. Bring them back to room temperature before turning them on.
