How to Clean and Disinfect Your Cell Phone
I hate to break it to you, but your phone is filthy. Your smartphone is one of the dirtiest things you come into contact with daily-and you put it right up to your face!
Think of all the surfaces that you rest your phone on like counter tops, tables and random public places (and lets not mention all the people who use their phone while they use the bathroom!)
Cell phones can harbor harmful bacterial like E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus, among other icky germs. And those germs can live on hard surfaces like your phone for up to 9 days.
What’s the point in constantly washing your hands and practicing good hygiene habits if your phone is filthy?
