Hugh: Your Phone is Dirtier Than Your Toilet Seat
Written by Hugh Campbell on April 25, 2023
If you’re reading this post, there’s a very high chance you use a smartphone on a daily basis. Think about how often you touch your phone and then ask yourself, when is the last time you cleaned your phone? We bring our phones with us pretty much everywhere we go, so it makes sense that they collect bacteria. Do you have your phone with you while you eat? What about while you’re on the toilet? Well those are two behaviours you may want to reconsider going forward, now that studies show that our phones are dirtier than toilet seats. People touch their phones hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day, and if you let your child use yours you should be extra careful about wiping it down before and after giving it to them. We spent a couple years sanitizing A LOT, and keeping up the habit with your phone is a pretty good idea.
