How do I clean my AirPods?


Protect your investment with regular cleanings and good aural hygiene. Dropping $160 on a pair of wireless earbuds in a dental-floss-sized case is no small decision. If you decided to spring for a pair of AirPods, you're going to want to take good care of them so they'll last you a couple rounds of iPhone upgrades. After all, these ones don't come bundled in the box. Here's how you clean your AirPods and keep 'em clean! With dirt, dust, lint, grime, ear wax, and more constantly finding its way onto your glossy white AirPods, you're definitely gonna want to clean them from time to time. Consistency is your friend, friend: The best way to ward off long-lasting grime is by preventing it from building up. Clean and clean regularly.


Carry a microfiber cloth


Get a little microfiber cloth and keep it on your person or store it wherever you charge your AirPods. Give your AirPods (and the case if you want) a quick buff every couple days.
If you happen to spot an offending smudge, go ahead and wipe it away.
You can pick up a six pack of microfiber cleaning cloths from Amazon and be set for life … or at least the life of your AirPods! Do not use hand sanitizer on your AirPods. You risk damaging the polish — or worse, the electronics. Instead, a little bit of water (purified is better than tap) on a cloth can help you wipe away the grease and grime.


As much as I wish Apple's AirPods were a seamless piece of plastic, they're not. And the tiny, tiny little cracks and crevices start to fill up with dust, grime, etc. When a cloth-polish just won't do, you've gotta get up close and personal.
I find a cotton swab is great for a thorough cleaning of your AirPods. Whether you've got ear wax clinging to the speaker grilles or dirt in the seams, a cotton swab will usually do the trick.
Lastly, if you've got a particularly stubborn smudge that won't wipe away from the surface of your AirPods, you might try giving it a quick swipe or four with a rubber eraser. The rubber will pull the mark from the surface of your AirPods.

A word of warning, though: Don't get lazy! Check on your little Pod Pals from time to time to make sure they're not collecting grime.

Why it is important to protect your iPad from drops.

As we grow more reliant on our gadgets, we take them more places beyond the living-room couch: the gym, on vacation, or onto a gritty work site. Even in the friendliest environments—say, the hands of a child—sometimes you need more than a flimsy cover to protect your investment. And at $499 and up, the most popular tablet of all, Apple’s iPad Air, practically demands it.

A case is one of the first accessories you should bye
 A  good case will protect your investment  from drops and Falls..  You may say that you are super careful. Or you only keep it in one spot. 

But there may be that one time  you take it somewhere and it slips out of your hand. 
The last thing you want to see is a broken screen.  
Yes you can have your iPad repaired. But there is the cost of repair work also the time without your device. Specially if you're using it for work. Investing in a case will save you money and time in the long run

There are many different kinds of cases out there. But if you're looking for a recommendation I would recommend getting the BumpKase
 by NutKase.com  I have been using one for a while.
I have written to posts regarding this product ad  I will put the link below.

Here is my review of my new BumpKase by NutKase.com


Hello my name is Chelsea and I want to tell you about my New iPad case called BumpKase
 by NutKase.com


Being a visually impaired person I have had a few issues with judging exactly if I have placed an item on a bed, counter or dresser. I have had a few times where I have missed the mark. And was extremely concerned if I have damaged what I have dropped. 

  I have been looking for a durable case for my iPad and  I have found the one that will give me that protection I want.

I have been using his case for about one week and it is the best drop proof case ever to protect my iPad! It's excellent quality with sleek design & it's made of rugged TPU and has double protected corners so if it drops it is safe! Plus it has a unique hand strap which allows me to hold it in one hand, & it comes in great colours! You will love it! Connecting headphones & plugging it in to charge is super easy, the ports are clearly delineated and very easy to use. It has a magnetic cover for sleep wake mode, and folds nicely into standing position & landscape mode. 
Another nice feature is that there is a clear pocket for a card with your name/phone number/address and email address. This will be beneficial for people knowing who the device belongs to.

 I know at times that money is extremely tight. And when you purchase an item you don't always plan on purchasing accessories and a mediately. But when you purchase a expensive I am such as an iPad it is extremely important to consider purchasing a case to protect your investment.  

So if you have an iPad or considering getting one I would extremely recommend checking out this company. They also have a case for laptops.

Have you heard of a company called NutKase.com ? They make a very interesting looking iPad case.

I was contacted by a nice lady by the name of Amy Lentini she is a owner of a family owned business called NutKase.com.  



They are a small family run business . who have designed a interesting iPad case which protects your product if it is dropped as well as having a unique elasticated strap on the back which is used to hold your iPad conveniently without the fear of dropping it. This looks like a very intriguing product. !

 I will be receiving it in the mail soon. After I tried out for a little while I will do a  in depth review.

 I am going to provide a link to their website here. And some photos. Can't wait to try this out as a visually impaired person . So stay tune for my review of NutKase.com.
