  • Germs: how sanitary is your smartphone?

    Ever since you were a child, you’ve been told that everything you touch has germs on it. From the pole grips on the subway to stairway handles, it’s guaranteed that you will get someone’s or something’s germs on your hands. Strangely enough, we never think about just how dirty our smartphone is. We use it everyday and everywhere; at work, at school, on the train, on the toilet, and yet we never consider the fact that the things we touch on a daily basis make our smartphone almost as dirty as any object in a public place.


    What type of germs and just how many?

    A recent study from London has shown that roughly 1 out of every 6 smartphones has some type of fecal matter on it, probably from the use of your smartphone in the toilet. In addition, the average smartphone contains almost 18 times as many germs as any normal flush handle in the bathroom. And roughly 80 percent of anything we touch during the day can be found on our smartphone screens. So how does our smartphone get this dirty and what is the best possible way to disinfect them?
