This may sound extremely gross – but it’s the truth ….
Your phone is 10 times dirtier than a toilet seat!
A recent survey showed that over 17 000 copies of different bacteria are present on the phones of the average student! This is 10 times more than the average toilet seat!
We check our phones over 40 times per day and do not consider the fact that bacteria and germs get transferred from our fingers to our phone on every touch! A good way to try and avoid harmful germs from getting onto your phone is avoiding using your phone when going to the bathroom. When toilets flush, for example, it spreads germs everywhere and if you were on your phone, those germs are now going out of the bathroom with you!
Have I freaked you out yet?
According to professors of public health, using your phone in the bathroom and then leaving with it is like going to the toilet and then leaving without washing your hands, it is the same principal. Studies have found serious pathogens on cell phones, including Streptococcus, MRSA and even E.coli. When you are sick, you also use your phone and after you have healed up, the germs and bacteria remains on your phone!
The second important note is – You hold your phone against your face!
So just consider all of the above facts and think about how many times you have touched your phone without washing your hands. Many of us like to catch up on our social media feeds during bathroom time and only wash our hands AFTER! The germs are then already on your phone! Then you get a call, and put your phone, on your face! “I believe that cleaning my phone with a disinfectant, at least once daily, is a must.” – says Zev Cherniak from Gammatek.
Luckily Gammatek has a solution that can solve this nightmare for you. It is called Whoosh and it has been proven to remove 99% of germs from your phone and give you peace of mind that you are now not putting toilet germs on your face anymore. Whoosh is safe to use and will not compromise any part of your device. It is time to get clean with whoosh!
I’ve been using whoosh for a couple of weeks now and after reading the above information supplied to me by Gammatek, I’ve literally become obsessed with cleaning my phone and definitely keeping it far away from any toilet!!!!
