Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, hygiene has become our number one priority. We’ve grown accustomed to sanitizing everything in our life—including our keys, credit cards and doorknobs—but when it came time to disinfect our cell phone, we knew there had to be a better alternative than giving it a Lysol bath.
Cue PhoneSoap, a popular new device that uses UV-C light to kill 99.99 percent of germs. Although the company name specifically targets mobile phones, it’s compatible with any small object that safely fits inside the compartment.
Every detail is considered—including ones we didn’t think we’d need until trying it out. PhoneSoap has two charging ports, so you can recharge while you sanitize, helping us multitask like pros. Ali Brown (PureWow’s director of social strategy) tried it out for herself and gave us the rundown about what she did and didn’t like. Here’s what she had to say.
