Why You Need To Clean Your Earphones Now!

A recent article in the Daily Mail has highlighted the dangers of not cleaning your earphones because of the level of bacteria that can be found which can cause serious infections.

Results of a study showed that frequently using in-ear listening buds significantly increases bacterial growth within the eardrum. Also working out with earphones in can add to the development of the bacteria due to the increased amount of sweat produced when exercising. This bacteria then builds up and can cause ear infections which may include pain or discharge from the ear.
