The importance of Hygiene for your mobile device – Keep your phone clean with Whoosh

Johannesburg, South Africa. August 2018 – Some people are less concerned with hygiene and germs than others.  If you are one of those people that like wiping the handle of your shopping trolley, then you need to pay attention!

Gammatek, the leading distributor of mobile technology and accessories has concluded that the hygiene of your mobile device is more important than you think.

The first important thing to note is:  Your phone is 10 times dirtier than a toilet seat!

A recent survey showed that over 17 000 copies of different bacteria are present on the phones of the average student!  This is 10 times more than the average toilet seat!

We check our phones over 40 times per day and do not consider the fact that bacteria and germs get transferred from our fingers to our phone on every touch! A good way to try and avoid harmful germs from getting onto your phone is avoiding using your phone when going to the bathroom.  When toilets flush, for example, it spreads germs everywhere and if you were on your phone, those germs are now going out of the bathroom with you!


According to professors of public health, using your phone in the bathroom and then leaving with it is like going to the toilet and then leaving without washing your hands, it is the same principal. Studies have found serious pathogens on cell phones, including StreptococcusMRSA and even E.coli. When you are sick, you also use your phone and after you have healed up, the germs and bacteria remains on your phone!

The second important note is – You hold your phone against your face! 

So just consider all of the above facts and think about how many times you have touched your phone without washing your hands.  Many of us like to catch up on our social media feeds during bathroom time and only wash our hands AFTER! The germs are then already on your phone! Then you get a call, and put your phone, on your face!  “I believe that cleaning my phone with a disinfectant, at least once daily, is a must.” – says Zev Cherniak from Gammatek.

Luckily Gammatek has a solution that can solve this nightmare for you.  It is called Whoosh and it has been proven to remove 99% of germs from your phone and give you peace of mind that you are now not putting toilet germs on your face anymore.  Whoosh is safe to use and will not compromise any part of your device.  It is time to get clean with whoosh
