Who knows where that thang's been!?
Every time you approach a microphone (or maybe everytime a microphone approaches you) you have to ask yourself: Does anyone have a condom that won't muffle the sound?
Really. Where has that thing been? Did the last singer / lecturer have herpes or some other orally transmissible disease? Another solution comes to the rescue: Mic Check (www.checkthatmic.com) is an individually packed, alcohol- saturated wipe that can kill many of the germs on the surface of the mic. Great for wiping down many types of musical instruments, sound and lighting consoles, and just about anything else you might come in contact with - living or dead.
It makes a great companion to the Microphome cleaner product that gets down into the pores of the windscreen foam (see: http://theatresafetyblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/yech-get-that-stinky-thang-out-of-my.html).
