PhoneSoap Results | How Effective Are UV Smartphone Sanitizers?

How Does PhoneSoap work?

Simply place your cell phone in your PhoneSoap and close the lid. During a 10-minute cycle, a powerful UV-C light kills 99.99% of household germs. When the external blue indicator turns off, your cell phone is completely clean.

This UV-C light effectively destroys nucleic acids and breaks apart bacteria DNA. With their DNA broken, bacteria can’t function or reproduce, and the organisms die.

In nature, the UV-C light that causes this germicidal effect is harmful to our eyes but is blocked by Earth’s atmosphere. In the PhoneSoap’s controlled environment, UV-C light effectively and safely sanitizes your cell phone, as well as anything else that fits inside your PhoneSoap like remotes, keys, tablets, and more.
