Mobile phones have 18 times more bacteria than a toilet flush

30 Aug 2013

It's a well-known fact that cellphones are dirty objects, but just how unclean are they? Fun fact: each square inch of your cellphone contains roughly 25,000 germs, making it one of the filthiest things you come in contact with on a daily basis. That's something to think about the next time you press your face to your phone.

Ever wonder what objects are actually cleaner than your phone? Surprisingly, toilet seats make the list because they're usually sanitized often.


It’s time to start a daily cell phone cleaning regiment; here’s how:

•  Check with your phone manufacturer first to make sure that the surface is safe to clean
•  Purchase a cell phone cleaning kit from your phone provider
•  Or for an economical cleaning option

○  Use a store bought sanitizing wipe to clean the phone OR
○  Dampen a soft cloth or paper towel with standard rubbing alcohol.
○  Open the phone if necessary and wipe down the inside of the phone or the outside screen. Clean this part well because this is the section that touches your face, your ear and fingers.
○  If you have a cover, take it off and wipe that out as well.
○  For all of the nooks and crannies, dip a cotton swab in into the alcohol and clean the spaces that the cloth couldn’t clean like between the raised numbers.
