How dirty are smartphones? Do not forget to clean your mobile phone during the epidemic prevention p



Are you aware that our smartphones are a breeding ground for bacteria? That's not surprising when you consider that the average Briton touches their phone screen 3,000 times a day.

According to the data, the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries have institutions on the mobile phone virus and bacteria research detection.


In 2018, a UK research institute tested three popular mobile phones (iPhone, Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy), toilet seats and flush toilets, as well as office keyboards and mice for yeast, mold and bacteria, and the results were worrying.

Both toilet seats and flush toilets have lower levels of bacteria than Samsung Galaxy and iPhone, and all smartphones have significantly higher levels than office keyboards and mice.

The tests also found smartphone screens had the highest levels of bacteria, yeast and mold, with 254.9 units of infection per square centimeter.

A university of Arizona study also found that cell phones carry 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats. And found potentially pathogenic microorganisms (Staphylococcus aureus, Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas, Bacillus cereus and Verticillium)



Do all these bacteria affect our skin and our health?

This is certainly a big worry!

1. Acne is usually caused by clogged hair follicles. If this happens, it could be caused by a bacterial infection caused by the phone's screen pressing down on the face.

2. When people touch their face and eyes after sliding their mobile phones, viruses and bacteria may be transferred to the human body, causing infection.



How do I clean my phone?

1. First remove the phone's leather case or protective case.

2. Then dip a tissue in 75% alcohol to wipe the phone, the leather case, the protective case and, most importantly, the screen.

3, let it stand for a while and wait for the alcohol to evaporate completely.

Note: the higher the concentration of alcohol, the better. High concentration of alcohol, if the concentration of > 95% alcohol, can only solidify the protein on the surface of the bacteria quickly, but the inside of the bacteria is still active, so the cleaning effect of such alcohol is equivalent to not killing the bacteria.

Depending on the type of phone you have, there are other ways you can safely clean it, including:

Microfiber cloth, isopropyl isopropyl alcohol, water, cotton swabs, cleaning gloves.

4. You can also use uv sterilization box to sterilize the phone, not only do not hurt the phone, and is a very effective way of sterilization, sterilization rate up to 99.9%.

Finally, don't forget to wash your hands, wear a mask, and always clean your cell phone during times of emergency.
