According to a report, the average smartphone is, in fact, ten times dirtier than a toilet seat. Factor in how often you press your smartphone to your face and that discovery becomes even more frightening. Here is a way how can you deal with your dirtier smartphone.

“For sure, if you’re worried about your dirty smartphone, you can sanitize your phone,” says Dr Donald Schaffner, professor at Rutgers University’s Department of Food Science and co-host of Risky or Not, a podcast about “Everyday risks from germs. But more importantly, stay away from sick people, and wash and sanitize your hands. Those are probably going to do a lot more to reduce your risk than sanitizing your phone.”
Schaffner also says the chance of catching a virus like COVID-19 from your dirty smartphone is minimal compared to the risk of being near someone who is already infected with the disease. But it can’t hurt to keep your phone clean, he says. “If you’ve got a hundred [bacteria] on your finger and you stuck your finger in a moist area like your nose, well now you’ve got a dry surface transferring to a wet surface,” says Schaffner. “And you’re probably going to be pretty efficient at transferring those hundred organisms you’ve got on your finger into your nose.”
Studies have shown everything from staph to e. Coli (bacteria) can thrive on your smartphone’s glass screen. COVID-19, meanwhile, can survive on surfaces anywhere from a few hours to over a week, depending on conditions.
If you’re in the mood to kill those germs, some alcohol can’t hurt. At least, it can’t hurt now, as companies like Apple have recently changed their position on using alcohol-based wipes and similar disinfecting products on their devices.

In Apple’s case, it still recommends using a slightly damp lint-free cloth to wipe your device clean. But it has changed its previous advice to avoid disinfectants — instead of warning against harsh chemicals, claiming the products may strip the oil-repellent ‘oleophobic’ coating on your phone, Apple now says those problematic wipes are in the clear.
