We're here if you have a question





While there are plenty of other hotbeds of germs that can be found though out the home and business, probably none are as innocent-looking as the average remote control.

Sono Remote Control Disinfectant WipesWhen you think of filthy, germ-laden items you probably think of a toilet seat, door handle, garbage can or the soles of shoes. But it would probably never occur to you that a lot of the items we use everyday are actually hotbeds of bacteria and viruses that are just waiting to get us sick.

One of the secretly filthy things you never knew you used is the remote control. Yes that thing you use to change to channel on adjust the volume has been collecting a major amount germs, bacteria and various "DNA"!

Who would have ever thought that we would be concerned about having a clean remote control? But the facts don’t lie. It’s a major germ hub that makes channel surfing a risky activity.


Think about it. Remote controls are handled by many different people in a single day. It is touched with sticky fingers after handling food items. It falls on the ground where dirt is tracked in from the outside.  It probably has been coughed or sneezed on. Remote control devices can arguably be considered the grossest thing in a home or business.


One would think that remote controls in hotel rooms would be relatively cleaner in comparison to the one in your home. After all, they have a professional cleaning crew that ensures their guests enjoy a safe, clean environment. However, according to Dr. Charles Gerba of the University of Arizona’s Environmental Microbiology Department, what might look like a clean remote control is actually far dirtier than the door handles, sink handles, and the toilet. It contains residues of semen, urine, and/or feces due to some guests who fail to wash their hands properly.  In addition to that, a study conducted by researchers at the University of Virginia shows that half of the remote controls they tested were host to cold viruses. These germs can live a minimum of 24 hours on the surface of the remote control which means you can easily become infected just by pushing the buttons.

So, when was the last time you cleaned the remote? Even if you did, did you disinfect it? A remote control device has a lot of nooks and crannies courtesy of all those buttons. Simply wiping it down once isn’t going to cut it. And getting the entire surface disinfected without damaging the unit isn’t going to be easy.
