There is plenty of advice on cleaning cell phones lately, but how can the threat of phone borne infections be further prevented? By putting a barrier between the cell phone, the user and all those surfaces teaming with infectious agents. It is possible to do so, and in a fashionable way.
he Coronavirus/Covid 19 virus outbreak now places an emphasis on cleanliness, especially for anything that comes close or in direct contact with eyes, noses or mouths. Cell phones touch all three every time a user answers or makes a call. Even after cell phones are cleaned, they will pick up more contamination unless a layer of protection is added. The ‘Save The Girls Touchscreen Purse’ provides such a barrier and does it with style.
Tami Lange, an entrepreneur, invented a solution for cell phones with the ‘Save The GirlsTouchscreen Purse.’ The purse allows users to have full function of their cell phones while it is safely stored inside Lange’s stylish invention. The user will keep their cell phones off of restroom counters, sinks, toilets, floors, and anywhere that germs and viruses congregate. Lange’s purses were brought to market late in 2017 and already sold over $4.2 million.
The advent of the global Coronavirus/Covid 19 pandemic now inspires people, who want to do as much as they can to remain healthy and contain the spread, to clean everything in their homes, vehicles and offices with renewed vigor and that includes their cell phones. The screens on cell phones are a gross, septic stew of germs, viruses and even fecal matter.
Bacteria and Cell Phones
According to State Food Safety (an online food safety and certification site) there are 25,127 bacteria per square inch on the average cell phone. Compare that number to the following:
- Toilet seat: 1,201 bacteria per square inch
- Kitchen counter: 1,736 bacteria per square inch
- Pet food dish: 2,110 bacteria per square inch
- Checkout screen: 4,500 bacteria per square inch
- Doorknob: 8,643 bacteria per square inch
“The cell phone has three times more germs on it than a doorknob and nearly 20 times more than even a toilet seat,” Lange said. “I can’t imagine putting my face next to a doorknob, never mind the toilet.” Save the Girls Touch Screen Purses can be found is some 2,500 retail locations throughout the USA.

The Save The Girls Origin Story
With two of her daughters ruining their phones (one lost on a trail and the second from accidentally throwing it in the wash) and then seeing her sister in law with breast cancer, pulling her phone from her bra, Lange decided to find a solution. She came up with a touch screen purse where women can text, talk, scroll social media, all while the phone is secure in a stylish purse. The idea for the ‘SaveThe Girls Touchscreen Purse’ was born.
