The hidden danger on phones?
Few people realize that the average telephone has hundreds of times more bacteria living on it than the average public toilet seat. Tens of Thousands of Germs from coughing, breathing, sneezing, and dirty hands coat phones spreading disease and illness. All literally right under your nose.
because it goes straight to your mouth, and you never clean or disinfect it.”
~Dr.Charles P. Gerba
Can a phone be cleaned?
Yes. A Telephone should be regularly disinfected, even when it looks clean as it can still be covered with germs. This is especially important during Cold and Flu season.
- Dampen a lint-free cloth with Rubbing Alcohol.
- Immediately being cleaning the large surfaces of the phone with the cloth.
- Repeat Step 1 with a new cloth as necessary.
- Dip a cotton swab in an ounce of Rubbing Alcohol. Let the excess drip off.
- Clean between the buttons with the cotton swab.
Be careful not to let excess Rubbing Alcohol leak on the phone and use Window Cleaner instead of Rubbing Alcohol on clear plastic screen covers. Always check the Telephone Owner's Manual first to see if special cleaning instructions are provided.
Newer ClearSounds Telephones are embedded with a patent-pending antimicrobial technology that keeps surfaces cleaner and fresher through natural silver ion release. Put simply, this process stops many microbes from multiplying and surviving on the surface of the phone.
This process takes the same natural silver that has been used in jewelry for millennia and infuses it along with other EPA/FDA-listed microscopic active particles into surfaces where microbes normally flourish. These natural ions prevent microbe proliferation, disable microbe metabolism, and hinder microbe membrane function. Unlike antibiotics, there is no evidence suggesting that the active ingredients used for this protection lead to resistant strains of microbes and, unlike other treatments, this process protects surfaces against microbes for the natural life of the product.
