Mobile phones are 7 times dirtier than a toilet seat, says new study

Dec 03, 2018 18:25 IST

A new study conducted by a UK-based company Initial Washroom Hygiene reveals that mobile phones are 7 times dirtier than a toilet seat. While mobiles with a leather case have more stored bacteria, those with plastic cases too harbour 6 times more germs than those found on a toilet seat. The study involved collecting swabs from smart phones, using a special light that lit up showcasing the presence of bacteria. Shockingly, the phone showed 1,479 bacterial spots as compared to 220 spots on a toilet seat.
