Your phone is basically the third hand that never gets washed because it touches EVERYTHING. We’re here to give you some tips on how to tackle freeloading germs on that third hand.
1. Keep your hands clean.
Washing your hands regularly is the first step in preventing the spread of germs to your phone. Keeping a small alcohol-based hand sanitizer near you at all times will help ensure clean hands.
2. Disinfect using UV-C light.
UV-C light is known to be the most effective when it comes to killing germs and bacteria. PhoneSoap uses UV-C light technology to zap 99.99% of those nasty germs* and, bonus, PhoneSoap will charge your phone while doing it.
3. Use an antimicrobial case.
An antimicrobial case features an agent that can prevent the growth of odor and stain-causing bacteria, molds, and mildews from hitting your phone.
4. Be mindful where you put it.
And last but definitely not least, watch where you're taking your phone. Avoid taking it with you into the bathroom and setting it on sinks or near trash cans–all breeding grounds for bacteria and disease.
