A professional cleaner has revealed the three products she uses to clean her phone’s screen and speakers to keep unwanted bacteria away.

Kacie Stephens, who heads The Big Clean Co in Melbourne, calls phones a “little box of bacteria” that needs to be cleaned daily — research shows that phones can hold 10 times as many germs as a toilet seat.

In a video shared on social media, Kacie used isopropyl alcohol, a hand-held brush from Bunnings Warehouse and a microfiber cloth to clean the phone.

The brush was used to clean the small speakers and improve sound quality, while the microfiber cloth was used to clean the screen.

If the speakerphone on your phone is not working well, this is how to clean it up. In the clip, Cassie said: Put some isopropyl alcohol on a brush and scrub all the holes.

This is great if you wear makeup every day or if you’re just a flavor.

“While you’re at it, sterilize the entire little box of bacteria.”

In the shots, Kacie first applied a few sprays of alcohol mist to the brush and then gently cleaned the top and bottom spokes.

Next, I used a microfiber cloth to remove invisible bacteria from the surface of the device.

To kill bacteria, cleaning experts recommend sanitizing your phone daily.

‘My God. This is required!! Thank you!!’ One person commented, another joked: “And if you don’t wipe your phone screen and come back with isopropyl every day…I call the police.”

In a 2011 study by researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, faeces were found in one in six smartphones.

Shockingly, further research by an American microbiologist found that cell phones carry 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats.

Other items including shoes, kitchen sink, TV remote controls, and children’s playgrounds are commonly covered in bacteria.

How much is a phone dirtier than a toilet seat?

A typical mobile phone carries more than 25,000 bacteria per square inch.

That’s dirtier than the kitchen table (showing 1,736 bacteria per square inch), dog food fish (2,110 bacteria per square inch), and even the common doorknob (8643 bacteria per square inch).

And of course, the most shocking facts are that your phone is dirtier than a toilet seat.
