A new way to clean your phone: Zap it

A new way to clean your phone: Zap it

The Phonesoap charger looks like a tanning bed for cell phones. According to recent scientific studies, one of the most common contaminants of mobile devices is – wait for it – fecal matter. That’s not to say that we’re all gross Neanderthals who wipe our backsides with the latest technology. But this is one problem there isn’t quite an app for – just yet.

When we inevitably use our gadgets outside of our sparkling clean living areas, our hands have come in contact with the filthiest of the filthy. Store door handles, money, handrails at transportation hubs are all places where our paws trade nasties with everyone else’s. Those germs are then transferred to our mobile phones, tablets, etc. Have you ever wondered why those pesky stomach and flu bugs keep returning? It’s mostly likely your poop-infested phone.

Using a disinfectant wipe is one way to get out of germs’ way – but given how sensitive today’s internal phone parts are, moisture isn’t exactly the best idea. Which is why the folks over at Phonesoap have developed a combination sanitizer and charger that uses ultraviolet rays to zap bacteria.
