PhoneSoap Polish – Sanitize Your Phone, Ease Your Mind
Ok this might be too much information, but did you know that “People are just as likely to get sick from their phones as from handles of the bathroom?” They need Phone Soap Polish! The antibacterial touch screen polish is specially formulated to kill bacteria and help prevent fingerprints and smudges on smartphone and tablet touch screens. The polish restores the coating, creating a surface that is smooth as the day you bought it and will help you wipe your phone clean faster and easier. The polish is all-natural, 100% non-toxic and its chemical-free antibacterial ingredients will NOT harm your phone’s screen. All you have to do is simply mark your screen using the solid stick formula with an “X”. Then, using the foam cap or your finger, rub in circular motions until evenly spread. Let it set for 1-minute and clean off using the accompanied micro-fiber cloth, lightly buffing away the residue. PhoneSoap Polish will leave behind a silky smooth, non-greasy, shiny surface. www.phonesoap.com
PhoneSoap XL: Tablet UV Sanitizer and Universal Charger
The Problem: Tablets are filthy. We use our electronics everywhere we go. Whether we like to admit it or not, we use our tablets while cooking, shopping, using public transportation, and of course, using the bathroom. Our touchscreens touch what our hands touch and all the bacteria we touch is transferred to our tablet. Since tablets are warm and stored in dark places like bags and purses, the bacteria breed and multiply. Technology is no-doubt a contributor to the spread of sickness and disease.
The Solution: While there are multiple ways to clean a device, PhoneSoap XL is the safest, most effective way. PhoneSoap XL does not use liquid, heat, or any harsh chemicals–only light! Using 4 powerful UV-C bulbs, the PhoneSoap XL encompasses your tablet in germicidal light. In just 5 minutes, your device will be completely sanitized. With PhoneSoap XL, you can sanitize tablets, multiple phones, or any other objects that fit inside in just 5 minutes. Use it to sanitize your keys, your mouse, your Apple Watch–if it fits, it cleans! Additionally, you can make your sanitizing process part of your charging routine by using the built-in USB port.

Tile is the gadget/app duo that keeps people connected to the things that matter most. People spend as much as ten minutes of their day looking for misplaced things. That time spent adds up to 60 hours a year! This holiday season, what is there was a sure-fire way to give loved ones the gift of time and peace of mind.
Tile, a tiny Bluetooth tracker and companion app, keeps you close to the things that matter most to you. Tile connects you to anything you never want to lose – keys, phones, luggage, pets – you name it. Tile does this by letting you “ring” any misplaced item and, the reverse, you can even ring your phone from your Tile.
When you lose something out of Tile’s range, the Tile community becomes a silent search party, with every active Tile app anonymously looking for your missing stuff. And that’s what really sets Tile apart; there are more than two million Tiles in 214 countries and territories around the world so chances are, you’ll find your stuff – even weeks later or a continent away.
If that’s not cool enough, Tiles are only $25 each, or less when you buy a four pack or more.
