Did you know that your earbuds are dirtier than you think they are?

If you take a look at it, you may notice that it is clogged with earwax or that there are strips of dirt lining around the plastic part.

There could even be dust lingering around the edges of your earbuds case.

The next question is— how many of us actually get rid of the disgusting particles in our earbuds?

While leaving all the dirt inside is not deadly, it does not mean we should sit back and do nothing. 

Bacteria can build up and subsequently cause infections, especially since the skin on our ears is very delicate.

You would not want to stick something with bacteria into your ears, right? 

With this being said, it is important to keep your earbuds clean.
