  • Cell phones contain 10% more bacteria than toilet seats.
  • Teenage phones contain 17,000 bacteria, 10 times more than a normal toilet seat.

Mobile phones have become a big part of our lives now and it’s hard to imagine what life would be like without a smartphone in your hand. Cell phones have made our lives so much easier over the past 15 years that there’s almost nothing you can’t do without one today.

In addition to helping people stay in touch, apps that help you order food, items, and even get around have taken the world by storm.

But if you’re terrified of germs and using your phone too much, we have bad news for you. Chances are bacteria are living on your phone.

This is normal since we carry our phones everywhere and often put them down in public. Because cell phones touch so many surfaces, pockets and hands, they can harbor pathogens.

After all, most of us don’t wash our phones the way we wash our hands and face after going out.

If you want to know how many bacteria are on a phone, get ready. Phones contain 10% more bacteria than toilet seats.

It’s not just a number picked out of thin air. Researchers from the University of Arizona confirmed this.

Researchers from the University of Arizona have found that teenagers’ phones contain at least 17,000 bacteria, which is 10 times more than a normal toilet seat.

The Corona era taught people about hygiene and hand washing. After the pandemic, people returned to their usual practices of repeatedly disinfecting their hands to eliminate bacteria.

Avoid bringing your phone into the bathroom to avoid bacteria. Experts say you should wash your phone several times a month with 60% water and 40% rubbing alcohol.

Spraying liquid on your phone can damage its screen. Disinfectants also work. According to the Daily Star, 70% of disinfectants can clean phone screens.
