DIRTY LITTLE CELL PHONE

Research shows that one in six cell phones are contaminated with fecal matter that could contain E.Coli. Gizmodo.com's Brent Rose explains how to de-gunk your phone without damaging it.

Kill germs
Once a week, clean your phone with alcohol-free disinfectant wipes available at any drugstore says Charles Gerba, Ph.D. a microbiologist at the University of Arizona. Alcohol can rub off the special coating on the screen that repels oil. Then dry it off immediately with a super soft cloth.

Erase fingerprints
Use a microfiber cloth the kind that generally comes with new sunglasses. It is soft and will not scratch the screen but is effective at removing fingerprints and grease from the glass. Bacteria are transferred from our hands and mouth to the phone, says Gerba.

Clean filthy buttons
Forget cotton swabs bits of fiber can come off inside the phone creating a bigger problem, says Rose. Instead, use a can of compressed air from any office supply store. A few short blasts will get rid of dirt and food crumbs.
