Clean Your Remotes

My sister and I were eating Indian food (YUM!!!!) one night and somehow our TV remote control ended up on my plate. While I was cleaning the edge of the dirty remote, I noticed just how dusty/grimy the remote was. I can't believe I didn't clean it earlier. Take a look at your remotes, bet'cha they are dirty too. If so, let's clean them. 

Cotton swabs
Rubbing alcohol (I didn't have rubbing alcohol so I used hydrogen peroxide)

1. Remove batteries.
2. Gently clean the keys with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. (Make sure your cotton ball isn't dripping with rubbing alcohol).
3. To get into the crevices, lightly dip your toothbrush in rubbing alcohol and clean the crevices. 
4. Let rubbing alcohol evaporate and then replace batteries. 

TADA! Enjoy awesomely clean (and disinfected) remotes!

Sorry for the differences in color- took pictures at different times of the day. SOO CLEAN!


  1. Wow! If I still watched TV I would so clean my remote now!

    1. Hahaha. Then dust your books instead. ;) Hehehehhehe
