90% SINGAPOREANS USE THEIR SMARTPHONE IN THE TOILET, BUT ONLY 1% CLEAN THEM?

In a recent survey conducted by undergraduates from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), a dirty Singaporean secret is uncovered: while 9 in 10 smartphone users admit using their smartphones in the toilet, only 1 in 10 clean their smartphones on a regular basis. Furthermore, only 1 in 2 always wash their hands after using the toilet.


The startling statistics from a street survey of 305 smartphone users in Singapore show that many just underestimate the dirtiness of their smartphones.

With these insights, the team of four final-‐year students from NTU's Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information pioneered a campaign, Hello, Hygiene? to promote good hygiene amongst smartphone users in Singapore.
 






 
"While we were researching on personal hygiene and germs, we chanced upon an article on The Telegraph about how dirty our smartphones really are, and that they can even harbor faecal matter.
In fact, a British study found that our phones have 18 times more germs than a public toilet seat," said team member Eenette Wong, 23.
