New UV-light sanitiser can keep your phone germ-free

June 18, 2020

It’s called PhoneSoap 3.

According to various experts, cell phones have 10 times more bacteria on them then toilet seats. They are hard to clean too. Apple recommends using 70% alcohol-based wipes, but the trick is that you shouldn’t get any moisture into your phone as this can cause serious damage. This is where a new product called PhoneSoap 3 comes in. This device is a handy little box that your phone fits into. It has UV-lights on the inside that are activated when you insert your phone and those rays then kill the bacteria on your device. Although there are no concrete reports as to how effective UV-lights are at killing COVID-19, some studies have shown that UV-rays can kill similar viruses, which is good enough for many.
