Is my phone really so dirty?
The answer is YES! The fact is that a cell phone has 18x more bacteria than a public restroom!
All the bacteria stored on your phone got there by touching shopping carts, doorknobs, handles in buses, shook other people’s hands, etc… Phones collect everything that our hand touches.
Keeping that in mind we wash our hands to stay healthy, but we don’t clean our phones which were in warm places like a pocket or a purse that are just a breeding ground for bacteria.
So when we use our phones again, germs are transferred back to our hands, faces, food, and other everyday items which later on makes us sick.
How can I clean my phone?
The best way to clean your phone and everyday items is with the UV-C light because the UV-C light kills 99.9% germs on the items and its crevices where cleaning wipes can't reach!
Ultraviolet light belongs in the electromagnetic spectrum with a wavelength in the range of 200 to 400 nm (nanometers), which is shorter than that of visible light, but longer than X-rays. All UV rays and bands are invisible to the human eye.
The UV spectrum can be subdivided into the following bands:
UV-A (long-wave; 400 – 315 nm): used for black lights, skin tanning, ink/resin curing.
UV-B (medium-wave; 315 – 280 nm): used for psoriasis therapy, can cause sunburn, skin cancer.
UV-C (short-wave; 280 – 200 nm): most effective for germicidal disinfection.
UV-V (vacuum UV, below 200 nm): can produce ozone in the air.
Since UV-C rays are blocked by the ozone layer, microorganisms have not developed a natural defense against UV-C energy. When the DNA of a microorganism absorbs UV-C energy, molecular instability occurs, resulting in the disruption of the DNA sequence. This renders the cell unable to grow or reproduce. Without the ability to reproduce, the cell cannot infect and it rapidly dies.
