In one study from the University of Arizona, scientists found that the average cell phone contains about 10 times more germs and bacteria than a toilet seat—not great, considering we're usually holding them right up to our faces. Sanitizing these germ traps should always be a priority, and during a pandemic, the importance of cleaning your phone can't be understated. You can make the process a whole lot easier on yourself with this CleanTray UV light sterilization case, which can kill up to 99.99 percent of germs in five minutes. And right now, it's on sale for just $70.
The CleanTray sterilizer uses UV-C LED lights to kill the germs and bacteria living on your phone, keys, AirPods, and any other essentials that are targets for microscopic unpleasantness. The case itself measures around 8 inches long and 4 inches wide, making it easy to keep in your desk, purse, book bag, or glove compartment. And with the CleanTray's additional aromatherapy function, you can infuse the case with essential oils to give your belongings a fresh scent afterward.
Price subject to change.
