Smartphones not only carry important data, they carry germs too. Smartphones spend a lot of time in close proximity to our faces and mouths so we should avoid using our devices in restrooms and other places where they can pick up bacteria.
While toilets tend to get cleaned frequently, because people associate the bathroom with germs, smartphones and other commonly handled gadgets — like remote controls and tablets— are often left out of the cleaning routine. If your hands are very dirty, your gadget may also be very contaminated with the same type of bacteria.
Because it’s an electronic device, many people are hesitant about cleaning them. To limit the spread of diseases from phones and other gadgets, try not to share them and wipe them down with an antibacterial wipes. While spraying the gadget directly might damage the equipment, a gentle wipe with a antibacterial towel should do the trick.
Gadget Techs recommends using ”Shieldme Antibacterial Cleaning Wipes” which you can find at Walmart for about $7.00. For those of you who prefer a little fragrance to make your gadget smell delicious while sanitizing, try “Wireless Wipes“ they come in pomegranate citrus, green tea cucumber, and rosemary peppermint.
