The average mobile phone is almost seven times dirtier than a toilet seat.

Just take a sec to process that.

It urns out phones in leather cases harbour the most bacteria and even phones with those wipe-clean plastic cases have more than six times the amount of terms found on a toilet seat.

The highest bacteria reading was for a smartphone in a leather case which doubled as a wallet – it showed up almost 17 times the amount of bacteria on a toilet seat.

A company called Initial Washroom Hygiene took swab samples from smartphones using a device which lights up live microbes.

A toilet seat scanned this way shows up 220 bright spots. The average mobile phone had 1479.

Soooo how do we clean our phones?
