How to Avoid Catching a Cold From Your Mobile
Published May 26, 2014
- Regularly wipe down your mobile’s surface, every day if possible – To keep your mobile phone as germ‐free as possible, disinfect the surface on a regular basis. It is best to check with your phone manufacturer on how to safely do this without damaging your mobile. This also applies to tablets and laptops. Many companies now offer specialised products to clean and sanitise electronics.
- Go hands‐free – To limit exposure to phones laden with germs and phone‐to‐face contact, consider using a hands‐free device whenever possible.
- Avoid sharing your mobile phone – Avoid lending your phone to other people, especially if you know they are sick. If you must share it, ensure that you disinfect its surface afterwards.
- Wash your hands regularly – The best way to avoid a common cold is to wash your hands thoroughly and frequently over the course of the day, including before and after using your phone. Ensure you use soap and water or an alcohol‐based sanitiser, and teach your children to do the same.
