  • The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has begun to spread throughout the United States, leading to a rush on certain products in supermarkets across the country.
  • Things like Purell hand sanitizer, Lysol spray, and Clorox wipes are almost impossible to find as people look to stock up on anything that can kill the novel coronavirus on surfaces and on their hands.
  • Regular hand soap is more than good enough to kill and remove coronaviruses from your hands, but what do you do about your smartphone?

People across the United States are finally coming to terms with the reality that the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country is going to get significantly worse before it starts to get any better. Retail chains, malls, and movie theaters around the US are closing and restaurants will be carryout-only in an effort to force social distancing, which is the only way to slow the spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, experts suggest that it’s already far too late and millions of people may already be infected despite not yet presenting any symptoms.

Things like Purell, Lysol spray, Clorox wipes, and other disinfectants are already sold out everywhere and there’s no telling if or when they might be back in stock. Luckily, regular old handsoap is more than enough to kill COVID-19 as long as you wash your hands thoroughly and avoid touching your face. The period of time in between hand washings it crucial though, and so many people fail to realize how likely viruses like the novel coronavirus are to come off your hands and stick to your smartphone while you use it.

Products like Clorox wipes are great for cleaning your phone, but only if you can find any. Lucky for you, there’s another way to kill the novel coronavirus on your phone and two different options are back in stock right now on Amazon.

The HoMedics UV-Clean Phone Sanitizer is one example of a device that uses UV-C light to kill germs and viruses on your smartphone. In case you’re wondering, UV-C is indeed confirmed to kill COVID-19. This model and another device — the Eshake UV Cell Phone Cleaner — are two options that are both back in stock right now on Amazon, but there’s no way they’ll be around for much longer.

UV-C sanitizers have been selling out left and right, and we don’t expect these two models to be the exception. Grab one now while you still can, and remember to order even as shipping estimates inevitably start to slip. After all, better to receive one of these devices in a few weeks than not at all. In the meantime, be as careful as you can, wash your hands constantly, and pick up a box of alcohol wipes to use on your smartphone for now.
