Paper clip is also used to remove the dirt and lint which is inside the jack. We can’t use directly after straightening of the paper clip as it can damage the metal inside the jack. So, to prevent any damage we can use cello tape or any other office tape to cover one end of the straight paper clip.
After the covering of the paper tape, we have to see that it can easily move inside the jack by that we can easily clean our jack if it is not so then we have to make less layer of the tape to be rapped.

After releasing the air, the dirt comes outside of the jack and our jack will be clean easily and free from dirt particles. This is also a different and simple way to remove impurities from the jack.
3. Cleaning with cotton buds or any rubbing alcohol
Purchase the cotton buds from any general or the medical store, as it is easily available in the market. Try to purchase strong buds, not the one who is very fluffy, if the buds are fluffy they there will be stuck inside the jack. So, to get the hard one. Buds who have thinner tips work better as it can easily move inside the jack. First see the cotton bud can fit inside the jack or not, if not then tear some cotton from it and make possible to fit it inside the jack. After that gently fit the bud inside the jack and gently brush the jack or move inside the jack so that the impurities come out easily.
Sometimes the buds cannot remove all the impurities which are inside the jack, so to remove all the debris inside we have use any rubbing or cleaning alcohol by that the difficult debris easily remove from there.
So, for this we have to use a small piece of sponge and dip it into the alcohol liquid and then soak the liquid of the sponge with the paper make it dry and after that roll it and make it in that way so that it can easily set inside the jack then roll the sponge inside the jack, the alcohol can remove the impurities easily and we easily get rid of the difficult debris inside the jack.

And also nobody knows about what we are going to talk with other people. And the major demerit of having headphone is that it can affect our sound process and also damaged our ears.

The ear phone is good when our hand is not free and we urgently want to talk to someone as it can help a lot to talk urgently. But we have to use limited earphone as it can also be dangerous for our health.
