Catalyst’s waterproof cases offer excellent protection for phones, iPads and other devices. Today we are going to explore how those same cases can protect you too.

With the global spread of the coronavirus, we are all thinking about personal hygiene in new ways. Maintaining cleanliness is everyone’s responsibility, paying particular attention to the hands and face. An effective phone-hygiene strategy is crucial.

Our phones and personal devices are essential to our modern lives, so it may come as a surprise to discover that they are also major carriers of germs and bacteria. Studies have found that the average cell phone might contain up to 17,000 germs on its surface at any time. That’s 10 times more than most toilet seats. 

And many of us touch our phones more than 2,600 times every day. So even if we’re washing our hands regularly, an unwashed phone will keep all those germs in circulation.

But there is a simple solution. 

The Catalyst case for a clean phone

Cover your phone with a Catalyst waterproof case and keeping it clean with water and soap becomes effortless – you can do it at the same time as washing your hands. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Firstly, clean your phone using a solution containing at least 70% alcohol (such as ethanol or isopropyl alcohol)
  2. Place the phone inside your Catalyst waterproof case 
  3. Ensure all seals and plugs are tightly secured
  4. Rinse under running water
  5. Apply soap and wash the case using your hands
  6. Rinse again
  7. Dry off using a clean cloth or towel
  8. Finally, disinfect the case using the 70% alcohol solution

With a waterproof Catalyst case, achieving excellent phone hygiene becomes part of your daily routine. You don’t need specialist equipment or cleaning products, and there is no risk of damaging your phone. 

Our waterproof cases are designed to withstand depths of up to 33 feet, with no risk of water getting onto your device once the case is properly secured.
