The Average Mobile Phone contains more bacteria than a toilet seat


Things that always around us usually will be the dirtiest things around. For example, money (literally and physically) and even stuff like our mobile phone. Mobile mad Brits are in for a shock thanks to new research published today which reveals that there's actually more filth on our phones than the average loo.

The study found that without cleaning and disinfecting your mobile phone and keyboard on a regular basis, more bacteria could spread potentially causing illness.

Mobile phone retailer Dial-a-Phone conducted the study taking swabs from everyday objects and analyzing the bacteria found on them. The shocking results found that there's more muck on our mobiles than the average door handle, keyboard, and bottom of a shoe or even a toilet seat.

A Dial-a-Phone spokesperson comments: "We take our phones everywhere, being in close contact with our mouths, hands and faces their bound to collect all sorts of nasty germs. The images make look scary but our advice to phone users is to ensure they clean them regularly with an antibacterial wipe.
