You love your smartphone, right? I too adore my phone. Do you know, carrying a smartphone and using it in the toilet doesn't make you smart! I know, you are very busy and can't miss any call, you are utilizing your every second. It's fine, your Instagram or Facebook selfie is that awesome that you have to check the number of likes every time you see your cell phone. If you're doing so while being in washroom then you're inviting germs causing serious illness.
Please don't be a dork saying, "I don't use my phone in public toilets but I use it at home." I know, you are not alone, there are many nerds. You are using your phone in the toilet then obviously you have been doing the same while having meals. Ahhh...it's yuck!
Here are more reasons, why you should not bring your phone in the bathroom.
Using cell phones in the bathroom can get contaminated with your lingering germs or fecal matter. Yes, you wash your hands properly after every bathroom break but for sure you don't disinfect your phone. Ewww, later you put it on your face when your parent called!
Germs can get deposited onto mobile phones that could then lead to either infection or transmission of the infection through touching somebody else. If you're not cleaning off the phone with an alcohol wipe, then it could lead to a "cumulative effect of bacteria".
Your phone may slip and it can even flush out.
You know there are many germs around such as E. coli, salmonella, C. difficile and norovirus etc. So, stay aware of them.
These germs can affect even your immune system.
