Research has shown that cell phones are far dirtier than we actually think, carrying 10 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. In fact, a new study found that the Coronavirus can survive on smartphones for up to a week.
To protect yourself from the germs and bacteria that cover your phone, take the right steps to sanitize and cleanse your phone regularly.
- Do not use rubbing alcohol or harsh chemicals to disinfect your phone. This could cause damage to the screen.
- Use a lightly dampened microfiber cloth with soap and water.
- Keeping your hands clean can actually lead to your phone staying clean as well.
Be mindful of where you place your phone and how you handle it, and it will benefit you in the long run.
