Our phones are FULL of germs. Here are the stats.

Did I every tell you about the time I dropped my phone in a urinal at the Clinton library? Obviously, I did everything possible to clean it, and ended up getting a new one. Our phones are filthy, even without any bathroom incidences. …Do you clean your phone? A survey found that 23% of respondents say they have never cleaned their phone. Big deal? Well, research shows that a phone that hasn’t been cleaned can have more bacteria on it than an entire household bathroom. Researchers say it’s common for smartphones to come into contact with all types of bacteria and disease, including strep, staph, and E.coli.Yikes. And this will gross you out after hearing that: 41% of those surveyed say when both hands are busy they don’t think twice about putting their phone in their mouth. And 88% of respondents say they regularly bring their phones with them in the bathroom, and 46% say they always take their phone with them to a public restroom. The survey also revealed that parents (93%) take their phones in the bathroom with them more frequently than non-parents (83%).
