Do you know how much harmful bacteria is on our phones compared with the handle on a male public toilet? Apparently it’s 18 times more according to some TV news report. After some research, Wesley LaPorte & Dan Barnes came out with a Kickstarter idea that lets you sanitize and kill those bacteria.

Called the PhoneSoap which houses any iPhone or devices which has a micro USB port and uses UV lights to start the cleansing process that will run for 3-5 minutes. The UV light is effective in killing 99.9% of most bacteria and virus. Apart from that, PhoneSoap lets you charge the phone at the same time.

The project has already reached its funding goal and there’s still 5 days left for any last minute pledge. If you’re interested, head on to the Kickstarter page where you can pre-order the PhoneSoap for $39.
