In the past I recommended the brand PhoneSoap, whose most famous product is the UV sanitizing product of the same name. The most recent product by PhoneSoap that I bought is called the Surface Soap UV, which is a UV sanitizing wand.
Similar to the PhoneSoap and Larq water bottle that I recommended in the past, there is not really any way to check whether the Surface Soap UV actually works. PhoneSoap publishes its testing data on its website, which is supposed to verify its claims of killing 99.9% of all germs. However, when you’re actually using the Surface Soap UV, there is no way to know whether it is actually working (and I just have to go based on trust in the product).
The Surface Soap UV is supposed to be better than other UV sanitizing wands because of the power of its UV-C bulbs. Many reports that I have read say that most UV wands don’t actually use real UV-C bulbs, which means they don’t have the effect they say they do. However, the Surface Soap does use real UV-C bulbs, as well as incorporate them into a safe, easy to use product. Since UV exposure can be bad for humans, the Surface Soap UV takes precautionary measures such as a twisting mechanism (you have to twist it to activate it) and a cover (you have to take it off to press the button) to prevent from accidental usage.
I find the Surface Soap UV really useful for things I can’t use my Phone Soap for, which includes items such as my laptop and IPad. However, you can also use it to sterilize products such as yoga mats, countertops, etc.; basically, anything in your house that needs sterilizing can be cleaned with the Surface Soap UV.
