82 percent of touchscreens are contaminated with bacteria, which is why consumers need to use WHOOSH! Screen Shine to combat illness.
TORONTO — Flu season is rapidly approaching, and staying healthy doesn’t end with washing our hands anymore. This year, school children are susceptible to a particularly dangerous respiratory threat – Enterovirus – that already has 130 confirmed cases, according to Eyewitness News. Coupled with flu season, we need to make sure that we’re taking every precaution to be safe. Decrease your risk for illness this year with WHOOSH! Screen Shine, an advanced non-toxic, streak-free screen cleaning solution that keeps mobile and tablet device screens clean and shining like new.
Leveraging the latest advancements in formula development, WHOOSH! Screen Shine was specifically developed to be a safe yet powerful cleaning solution that eliminates fingerprints, smudges, dirt, grime and makeup from any electronic device screen — leaving a clear, streak-free finish that makes the screen shine like new.
WHOOSH! Screen Shine is made with biodegradable surfactants and its proprietary formula provides a nano-thin invisible coating that also provides resistance to fingerprints and dirt buildup. Plus, WHOOSH! Screen Shine is safe and non-toxic. There’s no harmful residue left behind or transferred on to your fingers to worry about.
Research from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine at the University of London indicates that 82 percent of mobile phones have some form of bacterial contamination, making it more important than ever to keep the screens of our most frequently used devices clean. That’s the idea behind “Good Tech Hygiene,” a new movement introduced by WHOOSH!, maker of WHOOSH! Screen Shine, the most advanced non-toxic, streak-free screen cleaning solution that keeps screens shining like new and resistant to fingerprints and smudges. It’s also the only screen cleaner that is guaranteed* to be safe for every device screen.
So how dirty are our mobile devices? In a Wall Street Journal article published last year, Dr. Jeffrey Cain, President of the American Academy of Family Physicians, said, “People are just as likely to get sick from their phones as from handles of the bathroom.” The article also states that even some cleaners marketed specifically for mobile devices can damage the screen coating, which isn’t an issue with WHOOSH! Screen Shine.
According to CBC Canada, researchers at St. Joseph’s Healthcare in Hamilton measured the types of organic material left behind on phones. Manager of infection control Anne Bialachowski found that anything from fecal matter to E.Coli to pathogens were present on mobile device screens.
Additionally, in a video demonstration published last year, Mashable cites that around 25,107 bacteria are present per square inch on cellphone screens. Meanwhile, a pet food dish holds only 2,110 bacteria per square inch, and a checkout touchscreen at a grocery store only holds 4,500 bacteria per square inch.
“Most people don’t think about how dirty their device screens get, and they also may not realize how easy it is to keep them clean with a powerful product like WHOOSH! Screen Shine,” WHOOSH! CEO Jason Greenspan said today. “We developed WHOOSH! to show people see how much cleaner and clearer their screens can be, and now it looks like the days of perpetually dirty screens are numbered. And because it creates a nano-thin protective layer that resists fingerprints and improves the screen’s smoothness, WHOOSH! Screen Shine actually makes the phone look and feel better than when you first took it out of the box.”
