By now, your new quarantine routine likely includes wiping down household surfaces daily, not to mention washing your sheets more often and disinfecting your devices (think: phones and tablets). But your cleaning habits should also extend to your watches and jewelry. After all, you’re already washing your hands — shouldn’t you be disinfecting the rings, bracelets and watches that sit on your hands as well?
According to the CDC, studies have shown that the skin underneath your rings could contain more germs than the skin on fingers without rings. The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), meantime, recommends that medical workers leave jewelry, watches and other “non-essential accessories” at home, to prevent any possible transmission of germs and viruses. That’s not even taking into account everyday sweat and oils from your skin, that come into constant contact with your accessories.
