While most of us give our phones a quick wipe down with the sleeve of our jumper or blow into the charging point - one Irish tech repair shop has made a TikTok account which focuses on deep-cleaning devices as well as their accessories.

The company, called PhoneFixCraft, have shared videos comparing a customer's charging port to 'the belly button of your iPhone', yikes.

When it comes to the cleaning of AirPods, you can see wax and build-up around the edges before the experts pour some isopropyl alcohol over it to soften the contents.

They then use a toothpick to dislodge the muck before applying a small brush to remove the rest.

Commenting on one of the videos, one person wrote: "How do people let their phones get like this??? How you just gonna walk around with earwax in your pocket?"

Another asked: "Is this why my phone won't charge?" A third bizarrely commented: "Am I the only one who wants to eat it?" Yes. Yes you are, monster.

When they were asked whether it was safe to do, the company replied saying: "There's always a risk of damaging the pins inside. If you decide to go for it, stay closer to the side where there are no pins."

If you've done with your phone, you can move swiftly on to the radiator because one woman's tips for cleaning behind goes viral.

She uses washing powder and water to clean the place where dirt and grime can gather. Let's begin by saying that under no circumstances should you do this if you've got electric radiators. That's only going to end badly.

However, if you've got normal gas ones, this could be the trick you've been looking for. Pin your ears back.

Sharing her process to TikTok, she showed how she begins by putting a towel down underneath the radiator, which is always useful if you're gonna throw a load of water around.

She mixes boiling water and washing powder into a measuring jug, before pouring it really slowly through the radiator until it collects in a plastic box beneath.
