It’s safe to assume that you should never bring your cellphones with you to the bathroom as it can get bacteria from the space. However, some of us just can’t leave our gadgets behind.
If you really can’t live without your phone, here’s a tip to help you stay safe. Hygiene expert Dr Lisa Ackerley told Metro you could do a risk assessment.
“If you wipe your bum then pick up your phone, you may as well not bother washing your hands because all the bacteria you put on your phone will end up back on your hands,” Dr Ackerley said.
She reminded people that their germs can be passed to other people so it is important to observe proper sanitary actions.
