CleanseBot Kills Germs with UV Light, Referred to as a Handheld Roomba

One of the greater IoT innovations is robot vacuums, with Roomba being the most popular brand. For those that use them, they have revolutionized cleaning.

A new device wants to do the same for personal cleaning and killing germs that the Roomba has done for cleaning floors. The CleanseBot is a smaller device that will disinfect everything with UV light, including your bedsheets, toilet seat, and cell phone.

CleanseBot Sanitizes with UV Light

Disinfecting everything around us and keeping ourselves germ-free has become a concern for many people. It’s hard to go many places without bottles of hand sanitizer being set up all around you so that you can keep your hands germ-free.

But what about all our things that also get germs on them. Germs are all over, not just on our hands. They’re on everything we touch, and if you have kids, you can be guaranteed of even more germs in your home.

CleanseBot is a palm-sized automated smart cleaning and disinfecting robot that releases UV-C light that the company claims will kill 99.9 percent of germs, all without chemicals. It can either be used in handheld mode or can travel autonomously, like a Roomba, to do its cleaning.


One of the more interesting features of the CleanseBot is the “Under Blanket” mode. It will roll around your bed and sanitize and disinfect your sheets and blankets autonomously, according to Jyssica Schwartz, head of CleanseBot marketing.

We’ve all heard how dirty hotel bedding can be. And if you’ve seen the news items where they use a black light to show the dirt in hotel rooms, you’ve seen how disgusting it can be. Imagine how the CleanseBot can help with this and provide you with peace of mind while traveling.

When it’s in handheld mode, you can hold CleanseBot in your hand and “sanitize your cell phone, your kids’ toys, light switches, toilet seats, kitchen counters – anything you want,” claims Schwartz.

She adds that “it also has a ‘PowerBank’ mode; we have a 3700 mAh battery in it and a USB charging port, so it also acts as a portable charger.”

CleanseBot is still in the Kickstarter phase of its product release, but it’s easy to see how this could easily become a revolutionary product.


Throughout this article, have you been keeping a mental list of all the areas where you could use a ClenaseBot? Are you seeing all the possible germs around your home or office just thinking about it? That’s the very thing that could make this product change everything.
