PhoneSoap got my attention by telling me my smartphone is 18 times dirtier than a public restroom toilet. They had other fun analogies, but I’ll leave it at that. That was enough to get me to try this device.

If you didn’t know it, your cellphone is flat out disgusting. It has germs on the screen and case, which can be cleaned with the PhoneSoap device.

It’s pretty simple to use. Without chemicals, heat or liquid (which surprised me) it makes your phone squeaky clean in minutes. This is done with UV light to eliminate the bacteria and germs.

According to PhoneSoap website, “UV-C light penetrates the cell and disrupts the DNA, killing the pathogen.”

Before loading up my iPhone, I tried it on an older and smaller smartphone. It’s also designed to allow you to hear alerts from the phone while cleaning and charging, so you can clean it nightly.

New this fall, the company will be launching the PhoneSoap Plus for all the new larger smartphones hitting the market. The PhoneSoap Tablet will be after that.

The device is $59.95 at phonesoap.com.
