How It Works
Is my phone really gross? It looks pretty clean.
We can’t help but touch dirty things. The problem is when we touch our phones and pass along the germs from our hands to our devices. It’s easy to wash our hands, but we don’t wash our phones. Those germs on our devices thrive and spread and can make us sick.
The average phone is crawling with 18 times more bacteria than a public restroom. That means you’re just as likely to get sick from your phone as from the handles in the bathroom. Your phone breeds more bacteria, too. Your phone’s battery keeps it warm, and when it's stored in balmy, dark spaces like your pocket or purse, it creates even more germs.
How does PhoneSoap work?
When you want to clean your cell phone (or anything else that fits inside), put it in your PhoneSoap and close the lid. For a 10-minute cycle, a powerful UV-C light kills viruses, bacteria and other harmful germs. When the light goes off, your clean phone is completely clean.
This light is effective in destroying nucleic acids and breaking apart germ DNA. With their DNA broken, they can't function or reproduce and the organism dies. UV-C that causes this germicidal effect is rare on Earth as our atmosphere blocks it.
This light is harmful for our eyes, hence why it must be done within PhoneSoap's controlled environment. You will never see the UV light that is killing all those germs, but an external blue indicator on PhoneSoap Charger will let you know when your device is being sanitized. With powerful UV-C light inside, PhoneSoap has a deadly effect on microorganisms such as pathogens, viruses, bacteria and others.
