Usually when we write about bugs and smartphones we are referring to the code that keeps everything working like it should. Based on a new product hitting the market, there are some other bugs that we should be worried about – the germs covering the outside of our devices. According to the creators of the new PhoneSoap cleaning solution, the smartphones are eighteen times dirtier than public restrooms and a stunning one in six has some fecal matter on it somewhere. The PhoneSoap charging case uses UV light to sanitize handsets, killing 99.9% of the germs that are present.
The creators of PhoneSoap recently appeared on the TV show Shark Tank when QVC’s Lori Greiner agreed to provide $300,000 in funding for a 10% stake in the company. This comes on the heels of a Kickstarter project to get the project moving and PhoneSoap was even present at CES 2015.
PhoneSoap solutions are currently for sale online and at some Staples locations. The primary charging case sells for $59.99, but numerous accessories are offered. These include a microfiber cleaning pad, some polish for wiping a device down, and even a GermGuard case. If ordered online, PhoneSoap is currently offering a special 15% discount to celebrate their success on Shark Tank.
