What "contaminates" your smart phone touch screen? Your hands.....

I could see a case for not using these devices willy-nilly in a situation where you need to observe strict infection control procedures.....a hospital, say. For sure, I wouldn't have blathered away on a cell phone whilst treating patients back when I had the office. I think it's a bit OTT to think like this with regard to personal use cell phones, though.....just exercise a bit of commonsense about where and how you use them.

If you're really concerned, then keep sterilizing your hands and don't worry about using cleaning products on your touchscreen
