When is the last time you sanitized your cellphone?


After reading this you will want to make sure you do so TODAY.  Researches from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Queen Mary, University of London tested 390 samples from different cities and found:

  • Although 95 per cent of people said they washed their hands with soap where possible, 92 per cent of phones and 82 per cent of hands had bacteria on them.
  • 16 per cent of hands and 16 per cent of phones were found to harbour E. coli bacteria that are associated with stomach upsets.
  • Those who had bacteria on their hands were three times as likely to have bacteria on their phones.

  1. As a physical therapist working in hospitals, I had this exact sentiment and that’s when I did something about it! I created a wet wipe for cell phones with refreshing fragrance called Celly Smellys. If your going to clean your cell and gadgets, it may as well be a refreshing experience! My LCD screen safe berry, melon and colada gadget wipes remove dirt and grime and germs. http://www.cellysmellys.com. Check them out!
