Let’s face it: Cellphones are pretty gross. According to a University of Arizona study, phone screens have 10 times more bacteria than toilet seats. While the thought may be unsettling, there is a way to sanitize and charge your device all at the same time — and we’ve found the perfect cleaning tool. Currently available on Amazon, the $59.95 PhoneSoap 3 claims it will eliminate 99 percent of bacteria using a UV light.
Equipped with two UV lights and a transparent quartz plate, once you place your device in the system and connect to the plug, the sanitation process begins and it will run for 10 minutes. The UV light will damage the DNA of any bacteria, viruses or any other microorganisms living on your phone, which will irreparably damage them or kill them altogether.
Once your iPhone, Android or tablet is all clean, the light atop your PhoneSoap will turn off, indicating that your smartphone can be safely removed from the device. You can also leave your phone in the pod to charge, making this the perfect thing to use for powering up overnight.
The best part? This tool cleans more than your trusted device, try putting household items such as keys, watches, credit cards and even small baby toys in it. Great for charging and cleaning your cellphone while you get a good night’s rest, this gadget gives you one less thing to worry about. Simply place your device in the tool and go on about your day or night. Whether you are #TeamiPhone or #TeamAndroid, you can be sure that your phone will be rid of harmful debris.
