You may not know it, but your phone is one of the dirtiest things that you come into contact with on a daily basis. In fact, it is even filthier than the sole of your shoe or a toilet seat. A cell phone is a perfect place for bacteria to spread and multiply, because of its warm surface. These bacteria come from a number of different sources, including money, food, shaking hands with others and sharing phones. A dirty phone can make you or others sick and cause your skin to break out. While wiping the screen off with alcohol may give it a squeaky clean look, it does not completely sanitize the device. God knows you don’t want to use soap and water with your phone either. So, how can you kill the pesky bacteria that have latched onto your phone?
The PhoneSoap is a safe and effective way to sanitize your phone, killing 99.99% of the bacteria and germs. Rather than using heat, chemicals or liquid, this device has two UV-C lamps that attack the bacteria by breaking apart their DNA. Once this happens, the bacteria dies and can no longer spread or reproduce. This light can be harmful to the human eye, which is why the process must occur inside this secluded tanning booth-style environment.
Once you put your phone in and close the lid, the process begins automatically. It takes anywhere from 3-5 minutes, so you will have to be without your phone for a bit. Fortunately, the PhoneSoap uses acoustic outlets, allowing you to hear notifications and use it overnight. It also has a USB outlet and enough room for any cord so you can charge your phone while it is being sanitized.
The dimensions of the cleaning space are 6 inches x 3.74 inches, so it will fit practically any phone out there, even the colossal Samsung Galaxy 3.
