Whoosh! encourages mobile phone users to keep devices clean and bacteria-free
Maintaining personal cleanliness doesn't end with washing our hands anymore. Research from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine at the University of London indicates that 82% 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 non-toxic, streak-free screen cleaning solution that keeps screens shining like new and resistant to fingerprints and smudges. It's also 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.
"Most people don't think about how dirty their device screens get, and they also may not realise how easy it is to keep them clean with a product like Whoosh! Screen Shine," argues Whoosh! CEO Jason Greenspan.
"We developed Whoosh! to show people 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."
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 build-up. 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. Whoosh! does not contain alcohol, acids, ammonia, chlorine, solvents, petroleum distillates, phosphates, or Volatile Organic Compounds.
Whoosh screen cleaner is guaranteed to not harm any screen of an electronic device that uses a screen of a type and nature that was commercially available on or before 1st January, 2014 (including and limited to Apple Retina displays, TFT, Glass, LCD, Plasma, LCD, OLED, UltraHD, CRT, Eink, and Ultra HD screens), so long as used properly.
