Shop it: Homedics UV-Clean Disinfectant Pouch, $ 40 (down from $ 60), qvc.com
The Homedics case is supposed to make a difference. It uses UV light to kill germs that linger on your phone, keys, wallet, or other small devices and is completely portable. It doesn't need to be plugged into an outlet to work.
The magic lies in the two germicidal UV-C LED lights (included to protect the eyes). It cleans each side of the device for 30 seconds and picks up most smartphones with no problem. Once charged, it's good to do 70 cleans and it folds flat so it doesn't take up much space in your pocket.
This cleaning tool is available in three colors. So if you gift them to family members, you will never confuse them. And best of all, it's on your doorstep by Christmas! Simply order immediately - no later than December 20th. It really is the perfect gift.
