We’ve all done it ... you’re listening to a great song or a hilarious segment and you want to share it with the person closest to you. What do you do? Hand over one of your earbuds, of course. Seems harmless enough, but it’s actually really gross.
According to a recent article inWell and Good, if you don’t clean them before and after sharing, it’s basically the same as if you were sharing a toothbrush with that person. Oh, and it gets worse. According to an ear, nose and throat doctor, it’s a surefire way to spread or catch an infection.
