I have a thing for perceived germs. I'm not fully a germ-a-phobe but when I know that something is germy, I will take out my sanitizer wipe or gel to clean what I perceived is dirty. I carry a pack of sanitizer wipe, a bottle of sanitizer gel, a can of sanitizer spray and sanitizer foam in my bag. I started thinking about my phone and really how germy and dirty it is. I mean I carry it on my body 24/7. I leave it on the table, in my bag, in my jeans' pockets, basically anywhere and everywhere. I'll eat something and will use the sanitizer after I finished eating and before I touch my phone. I don't think most people do this though. For the times I forget, like eating chips and getting a phone call, I usually just wipe my hands on a tissue/napkin quickly before I pick up the call. Now I'm thinking my germy phone is placed on my face as I talk to my friend. Not a pleasent thought. There are people that take their phones to the bathroom, take this thread here: http://androidforums.com/lounge/252848-what-do-you-do-while-pooping.html I try to sanitize my phone and the case as often as possible. I turn it off and dab some sanitizer gel on a tissue and wipe the phone with it. I'm not sure if there's any harm done to the phone, but at least I know my phone is clean. Another thing is the earbuds that you use with your phone, how often do you clean them? I realized that they are quite dirty after my first ear infection >_>;;; I think I have another right now :< Has anyone gotten ear infections because of the earbuds? When I sanitize my phone, I'll use the gel on the fabric covers of the earbuds but I don't know how effective that is. I've been trying to make it a habit to wash the fabric cover every night before I go to sleep. This is just a curiosity of mine, if there's others like me or do people really don't give a shit about this. I mean, getting ear infections not something to take lightly about. You carry your phone everywhere you go, it most likely is picking up all sort of germs and bacterias.
