Clean Your Cell Phone Screen!
This week the Star Tribune reported some dirty little secrets – literally DIRTY – about the germs and bacteria that you can find in some unexpected places. The paper reported on a British study from last year that found “mobile phones harbor 18 times more bacteria than a flush handle in a typical men’s restroom.” Does that make you want to use the speakerphone feature instead of holding your phone against your face?
In the same article, another item is mentioned as being filled with germs – and this one will make you think twice about eating in the car. “…a steering wheel has 700 different bacteria per square inch compared with a public toilet seat with 80 different bacteria per square inch.”
The next time you’re at the store, you might want to grab some anti-bacterial wipes or hand sanitizer – to go!
