How dirty is your mobile phone?

November 16, 2007 12:51am CST
Do you clean your mobile phone? If yes, how thorough and how often do you clean it? A swab-test carried out earlier this year by UK-based mobile phone retailer, Dial-a-phone, found that phones harbour more bacteria than the soles of shoes and even toilet seats! Imagine holding a soiled shoe glued to the side of your face and talking into it! Yucks!

I agree to this that my phone is quite dirty. Imagine your dirty hands holding it every now and then. That is why I change the casing of my phone once a month. Atleast, old germs and dirts may go away.

Change the phone casing once a month? You take care of your phone pretty well. Don't forget to also swap the inside of the phone too!

HI there.. I have a pretty neat phone.. I clean it once every mnth.. And that's also becoz its not good to open it more frequently than that, the parts may become loose and may fall out...
