Needless to say, people have become pretty anti-germ over the past few months. Amid the global pandemic, the need to sterilize every little thing we touch has become the new normal.

If you're looking to keep germs out of your home, the Coral UV Sanitizer is here to help. It's a sterilizing device that can clean baby bottles, toys, cell phones, electronics, kitchenware and any other item that can possibly fit inside of it.

Using only two Ultraviolet C lights, the Coral UV can kill 99.9 percent of germs in as little as 10 minutes. To be sure, the device has "undergone rigorous lab testing to eliminate E. coli, salmonella, staph" and other harmful germs, according to the product description.

Additionally, it comes with a built-in dryer so you don't need to wipe down items that are wet beforehand.

In total, the device has three unique settings: sterilize and dry, sterilize only or dry only. You also have the option of 24-hour storage, which includes sterilizing items every two hours.

As a bonus, the product has touch controls and a child safety feature that immediately shuts down the device any time the cover is open.

While the Coral UV has been marketed as an effective sterilizer for baby bottles and child toys, the medical community appears to have found a use for it too. In fact, the brand has posted several pictures of the device being used by medical workers on its official Instagram page.

One thing to note, however, is that you must switch out the UV light bulbs every 12 months and replace the filter every three months.
