While I’m sure you were reminded at every possible opportunity on Friday and Saturday – the clocks did indeed push forward one hour on Sunday. While you may curse the seasons for the removal of an extra hour of sleep, the sun has even started to make an appearance. I guess we can now officially say Winter is over and Spring is here – which means it’s time for the annual Spring Clean!
Let’s face it – all of our smartphones are pretty disgusting. We take them everywhere with us, use them when we are out and about and in a variety of other situations. All that dirt goes somewhere, and a nice start to your spring clean is to use the antibacterial wipes to clean off any excess grime. This pack from Durable comes in a easy dispenser tub, and the wipes are even biodegradable.
Microfiber Cleaning Cloths (Six Pack) [55% Off]
Once you’ve given your phone the once over with the anti-bacterial wipes, then you’ll want to dry it off with a microfiber cloth to prevent dust and grime sticking onto the wet surface. They also work great as a liquid-free screen and lens cleaner. Grabbing a six pack means you can leave one at your desk, at home, and in your car.
Of course, a lot of anti-bacterial cleaning solutions contain chemicals that you may either not react well too or have an ethical standpoint against. In steps the Ecomist Screen Cleaner with its alcohol-free, hypoallergenic formula instead. Also includes a free microfiber cloth.
So you’ve cleaned and dried – but now what? A screen protector is usually thought of as protecting the screen from scratches and cracks, but it also acts as a barrier between greasy fingerprints and your screen.
Durable Powerclean Air Duster [36% Off]
Moving onto the next most germ-ridden peice of technology you probably own – your keyboard. For all the same reasons as your phone, your keyboard is a breeding ground for bacteria, dirt, dust, and food crumbs. Grabbing yourself a can of air duster is a pain-free way to force all the grime out from between the keys without having to dismantle the keyboard.
Of course if you want a little more power in your air duster then you could opt for CompuCleaner’s electric air duster. With a 550W motor and two air flow speed settings you’ll be cleaned up in no time. And if you are thinking of a full PC clean then its a huge time saver when clearing dust from the inside of your PC.
Keyboard’s are gross. If you’d rather trade in your current one then you could always opt for an anti-bacterial keyboard – commonly used in dentist’s offices – like this one from SterlieFLAT. A standard keyboard means you don’t miss out on function but the impregnation of nano silver silicone means you don’t have to worry about spreading bacteria and disease from your keyboard anymore.
Samsung 850 Pro 256GB Solid State Drive [4% Off] [CA]

Faster, lighter, and cooler (in the literal sense), swapping out your HDD for an SSD will make your computer almost feel brand new again.
TRIXES Anti-Static Wrist Strap [54% Off]
If you do decide to venture inside of your computer to clean or upgrade then you need to make sure you are grounded. Grabbing one of these anti-static wrist straps will help minimise the risk of static electricity damaging your internals.
