Many years ago people would take a magazine or newspaper and read it while on the toilet. Nowadays most of us take our smartphones with us to the toilet and we never thought it could put our health at risk.

In the toilet harmful germs could migrate from your poop to your mouth.

Germs from the toilet and surfaces could end up on your hand and end up on your phone.

Anyone else who has used the toilet has left their germs as well. You will find germs on the toilet roll holder, the door handles, the toilet seat and the handle to flush the toilet.
You might be extremely vigilant and clean when going to the toilet but you have no idea if everyone else is as clean.
When we touch surfaces in the toilet cubicle and even after we have washed our hands, we touch the door handle to exit the toilet. If we then pickup our phone, germs get onto our phone and then can infect you by entering your mouth.
“These germs could include anything from norovirus to salmonella. So you don’t want those on your phone.
Norovirus – winter vomiting bug
Salmonella
Salmonellosis is a type of food poisoning caused by the Salmonella enterica bacterium

“They can also go onto any surface where the phone goes.

“So if you share your phone with someone then you could be sharing out all the germs you picked up from the toilet.”

On that note, even if you do not take your phone to the toilet, you wash your hands very well after using the toilet………but then you touch the door handle to open the door.

*ALERT*  Toilet door handles also are covered with germs. What I usually do it take a bit of toilet paper with and using one tip of finger with paper around it to open the door…..dump the toilet paper afterwards. This is of course still not 100% clean but if you keep a small tube of waterless cleaner in your bag you could use this after leaving the loo.
