Clean the screens, please!

smartphone bacteria Image: Dr. Simon Park via adelaidenow If that image doesn’t get you cleaning and purifying your screens, I don’t know what will. Clean your devices! They are disgusting and heaven knows what shared devices and screens would culture. Screen cleaning needs to be as routine as teeth cleaning . It just does. I have blogged about cleaning your devices before because glass and fingers brew some interesting results. Dr. Simon Park got his students to do this as a bacterial art project and found most of the bacteria were harmless but there were some serious ones which grew. It’s a cross curriculum exercise which highlights a lifestyle change we need to make! You can read about the art project here and view the gallery of images here. Then get out your cleaners and clean those screens!

    • I have just visited your presentation and left a comment. Thank you. Finding SlideShare a bit hard to work out at the moment. I nearly died when I saw all that bacterial growth and I do clean my screens like you do. I don’t care if it’s good or bad – it doesn’t look artistic to me, it looks disgusting! I , too, shall clean more and be more careful with shared devices and screens.
