Editor's Notes

March 19, 2019:

Most people generally don't think about just how many germs are on their smartphone, but once you do, it is hard to get that thought out of your mind, especially when you pick it up and put it next to your face. If you want to feel confident that you have completely sanitized your mobile device, there is no better choice than the PhoneSoap 3.0. It was the UV sterilizer that started the craze, and it was even featured on Shark Tank. The Consolidated Holdings Sterilizer seems like it might not be quite as effective as the Phone Soap 3.0, but it doubles as an essential oil diffuser, so if you are willing to make the compromise, you get two items in one. Another multipurpose item is the Germise G-1000, which is a handheld option that you can use inside of shoes, over your laptop keyboard, and on a variety of other items. If you like the idea of a UV sanitizer, but feel like most models aren't quite big enough for your needs, take a look at the Sienna Lux. It can accommodate more stuff than many others, yet still isn't so overly large that it will take over your nightstand. If you prefer not to go the high-tech route, then you'll appreciate the simple iRoller SKT 2, which utilizes a sticky roller to remove dust, smudges, and bacteria. Care Touch Cleaning Wipes, Dirty Phone Original, and the UsefulThingy Kit are also simple options that work like any traditional, liquid-based cleaners.
