Worried your cellphone may fall into the 16% with poop on it? You should be scared — not just of the germs lurking on your mobile, but on all your favorite tech gizmos.
Before you type anything else into your keyboard, consider this: Keyboards, on average, are five times dirtier and have 60 times more germs on them than toilet seats. They are 150 times over the acceptable limit for bacteria.
This infographic, created by Keeping It Kleen, reveals the specs of our tech gadgets we don’t really want to know. For instance, the dirtiest device in your house is the TV remote. Same applies in hotels; the remote even beats the infamous bedspread.
If you want to keep your mobile out of the 16%, take some relief knowing you can keep your tech clean with sanitizing wipes, UV light cleaners, rubbing alcohol or microfiber cleaning cloths.
Will these findings change any of your tech cleaning behaviors?
