We all know that I have germ issues. And we should all know that the cell phone is one of the dirtiest little gadgets around. Especially if you have young kids who want to touch your cell phone with their dirty little germy-germs. Enter the Violight UV Cellphone Sanitizer.

I must tell you that I cringe when someone is on their cell phone and HANDS it to me to talk to the person on the other end. I literally hold it out where it isn’t touching my face or ear and then immediately go and wash my hands afterwards. All the while I think the other person is completely oblivious to the fact that I am completely grossed out. Never mind someone asking to use my cell phone.
Am I making you think of germs you never thought of before? I know, it’s a sickness.  I also have that handy grocery store list app on my cell phone that I use every time I am at the grocery store, at the same time touching that germy handle on the germy cart.
So happy every night to come home and stick the cell phone in the Violight Cell Phone Sanitzer. The world all makes sense again. Of course don’t think for a minute that the same cell phone doesn’t get wiped down immediately when someone borrows it. I have those germ killer wipes always close at hand.
But in all seriousness, in case you didn’t think I was being serious, which I was, for $30 this cell phone sanitizer is a great thing to have. My friend Patti purchased one for her office and keeps it on her desk. Everyone that comes in drops their cell phone in for a little quick cleaning. She should charge a fee! It would pay for itself in no time.
