How To Kill Coronavirus On Smartphone

  • The novel coronavirus outbreak is intensifying in the United States, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
  • Smartphones are breeding grounds for bacteria and viruses including coronaviruses, and it is more important now than ever to ensure that you not only wash your hands regularly and thoroughly, but also disinfect your smartphone as often as possible.
  • Products like Clorox wipes and Purell are good ways to disinfect your phone, but they’re still in short supply. Luckily UV-C sanitizers work just as well, and two different popular models just appeared back in stock on Amazon despite how quickly they sold out a few weeks ago.

As the novel coronavirus continues to spread across the United States, there are several parts of our lives that won’t go back to normal for quite some time. People in most regions should be practicing strict social distancing, for example, and self-quarantining should be employed in any areas that are within striking distance of a hot zone. Everyone everywhere should be more focused than ever before on hygiene as well. Washing your hands anytime you touch a surface that others might have touched is of the utmost importance since most of us have no choice but to go out in public from time to time. Grocery shopping is a perfect example — do you know how many people touched that box of cookies before you? A lot.

Since hand sanitizers are almost impossible to come by right now, many people can’t wash their hands until they get home. That means anything you touched while out at the grocery store or anywhere else will need to be sanitized, including the door handles on your car, your steering wheel, your wallet, your clothes, and of course your smartphone. You can’t use bleach cleaner on your phone though, and most people don’t have Clorox wipes or Lysol wipes anymore. What are you supposed to do?

A few weeks ago, we told you about two smartphone sanitizers that use UV-C light to kill germs and viruses — including coronaviruses — on your smartphone. They sold out almost immediately after we covered them, but now they’re both somehow back in stock.

HoMedics UV Clean Phone Sanitizer, UV Light Sanitizer, Fast Germ Sanitizer for Cell Phone, Make… List Price:$30.98 Price:$79.99 You Save:$1.65 (5%) Buy Now Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission

The HoMedics UV-Clean Phone Sanitizer is a best-selling UV-C smartphone sanitizer that kills germs and viruses in just a few minutes. And just in case you’re wondering, UV-C is indeed confirmed to kill COVID-19. The HoMedics model is in stock right now on Amazon in three different colors, and they’re all shipping out this week. Similar products from most other companies are shipping from China and delivering sometime in May… a lot of good that’ll do.

There’s also another device in stock right now — the Eshake UV Cell Phone Cleaner — that isn’t quite as popular. It has good reviews though, and it’s also less expensive than the HoMedics model. Definitely pick up one of these two UV-C sanitizers while they’re in stock. Then keep washing your hands constantly, and pick up a box of alcohol wipes to use on your smartphone if you want to be extra safe.
