You鈥檝e probably heard countless times just how dirty your cell phone really is. If you think about it, that makes sense, considering it hardly ever leaves your hands. You鈥檝e likely used it while eating ANDon the toilet (hey, we know), and you probably don鈥檛 clean your聽smartphone聽as much as you should. Sure,聽there are a few ways to clean it, including rubbing alcohol towelettes (+聽our personal fave 鈥 Phonesoap!),聽but the truth is most phones simply aren鈥檛 up for a good scrubbing. Until now.


Japanese tech company Kyocera鈥檚 new Digno Rafre smartphone isn鈥檛 just waterproof 鈥 it鈥檚 actually scrub-proof and soap-proof as well. No need to carry around those little packets of towelettes anymore. When users of this phone聽start feeling like their cell聽is getting grimy, they聽can just run it under a faucet for a minute and use soap (even ordinary hand soap,聽according to Kyocera!)聽and a soft cloth to dry.聽You can bring the phone into the bath with you for short periods of time 鈥 so long as the water temp is lower than 110 degree Fahrenheit, which is, um, easily done. Once you get out, just shake the device to get rid of excess water.

Oh yeah, and possibly one of the coolest features of this phone is that it鈥檚 coated in a self-healing paint that will heal聽itself from shallow scratches. This tech be cray.

Raise your hands if you鈥檙e going to go聽clean your phone now.
