With nearly 80% of communicable diseases being transferred by touch, it is a wonder how there aren’t more active measures being taken to eliminate this constant threat of contracting someone else’s or even your own microbes that get left behind on the surface of everyday objects.
Our hands are our primary way we interact physically with most objects in our daily life, with our body and face included. Every time we touch our phone cases or keyboards or any other object that we use frequently we touch all of the built up bacteria and microbes that have accumulated over the years. We might even add more to the surface too! We then proceed to touch other objects or people with these newly added microbes to our hands.
Whether it be shaking your friend’s hand, giving your significant other a hug, or holding your child in your hands, we introduce the risk of sharing the microbes and bacteria from every surface we touched throughout the day. I’m sure none of us want to be touching our friends and family and acquaintances with the same hands that have been touching germs all day.
Now you might say, I wash my hands, doesn’t that help? Washing your hands properly has been proven to reduce microbes present on your hands, however, studies show only about 67% of people practice any sort of hand hygiene, with the percentage that practices hygiene in an effective manner to reduce microbial presence being even lower.
With this being said, even if you wash your hands and remove any trace of bacteria and microbes from them, you might check your phone immediately after and have your hands being right back to where they started.
This is where WhiteCell Technologies wishes to help you by producing products that eliminate the worry of constantly recontaminating your hands with bacteria and microbes on frequently used surfaces so that you never have to worry what you’re passing onto yourself and your loved ones every time you touch them or objects they might touch.
