Everyone’s love their smartphone. I too keep my phone close to me 24/7. Infact many of us take our phones to Bathroom but do you know, carrying a smartphone and using it in the toilet doesn’t make you smart! If you’re doing so while being in washroom then you’re inviting germs causing serious illness.
Here are more reasons, why you should not bring your phone in the bathroom next time.
Using cell phones in the bathroom can get contaminated with your lingering germs or fecal matter. You wash your hands properly after every bathroom break but for sure you don’t disinfect your phone. Later you put it on your face. Germs can get deposited onto mobile phones that could then lead to either infection or transmission of the infection through touching somebody else. If you’re not cleaning off the phone with an alcohol wipe, then it could lead to a “cumulative effect of bacteria”. Even your phone may slip and it can even flush out. You know there are many germs around such as E. coli, salmonella, C. difficile and norovirus etc. These germs can affect even your immune system. So don’t take your smartphone with you in bathroom.
