The reason for this, according to experts, is because people do not wash their hands properly after using the toilet.

Although 95% of those surveyed said that they usually wash their hands with soap after using the toilet, amazingly 92 per cent of phones were found to have harmful bacteria on them .

Nearly 16 per cent of hands also had extremely dangerous E coli - bacteria on them.
