Your Phone is Dirty… Really Dirty
To put it bluntly, your phone is gross. Every time you press that bad boy up to your face to talk to your BFF, you’re getting intimate with over 25,107 bacteria … per square inch!
Compare that to a toilet seat and it’s not good. Not good at all.
A toilet seat has 1,201 bacteria per square inch. According to my trusty OS X calculator, that makes your phone over 20x dirtier than a toilet seat. Wait, what?!?! How can that be?
Well, toilet seats get cleaned and sanitized regularly, killing bacteria and germs that would otherwise accumulate and grow. So, why don’t we do this with our phones? That’s a damn good question and the answer is… we’re lazy. 🙂
Once or twice in my poor phone’s life I’ve wiped it down with rubbing alcohol pads. Then I found out that this can remove screen coatings and isn’t a good idea. So I stopped. (Not like wiping it once every 6 months was doing a lot anyway). I was left with wondering how to clean my phone easily.
Sanitize Your Phone!
Enter PhoneSoap, a UV sanitizer for your phone. PhoneSoap 2.0 uses UV-C light to kill 99.99% of germs, safely sanitizing your phone without using chemicals that can damage your phone’s screen or components.
It’s incredibly easy, and slightly fun (despite the limited interaction), to use.
All you have to do is plug the unit in to the wall. Open the lid, put your phone in face up, close the lid and wait for the awesome lightning bolt to turn off.
It takes about 10 minutes to do its thing — it’s thing being sanitizing the crap out of your phone… pun intended. 😉
Your phone doesn’t come out looking brand new if it was dirty — remember this is sanitizing not cleaning your phone. Just know what to expect. Nothing you can detect with the naked eye. But rest assured, it does work. The Discovery Channel recently took PhoneSoap 2.0 to a lab and cultured bacteria from phones before and after PhoneSoap sanitization and the results were drastically different.
