In current scenario of heightened awareness of hygiene, we take a lot of precaution in our daily life to prevent against catching air borne infections. All of us be it adults or children , at one time or another, are using Microphones. Usually same microphone is shared amongst many people and since a microphone is placed near ones mouth, whatever precaution is taken, there is every possibility of it becoming a very viable media for transfer of saliva, germs, viruses and other bodily effusions to and from people.
Although the number of microphones and its use is steadily increasing in our daily life, the problem of cleaning these still exists. While the dust etc. is easy to remove but not the germs and “MICROPHONE HYGIENE” remains a concern. Many interim solutions like “Mouth Wash Liquids” “Alcohol based Hand Wipes” etc. have been tried but none have proved really convenient and effective. Probably this is the reason that renowned artists carry their own mikes which they do not share with anyone.
