Celly Smellys Launches In July For National Cell Phone Courtesy Month

CINCINNATI, OHIO: July 9, 2008. Celly Smellys - a Cincinnati based company - launches a new, one of a kind scented cleaning wipe for personal electronics in July during National Cell Phone Courtesy Month. Celly Smellys came on the market in June of 2008, and are one of the few tools cell phone users have in the war against dirt and grime. Celly Smellys are convenient, scented, individually packaged, pre-moistened wipes with a specially formulated solution that reduces exposure to germs on hard, non-porous surfaces by removing dirt and grime where microorganisms may reside and limiting the exchange between phone and user. The wipes are non-toxic and LCD-friendly to even the newest electronics on the market, including cell phones, computer screens, gaming systems, and mp3 players.

"Routinely cleaning your cell phone with a cleansing wipe has become part of good hygiene and polite manners," says Jessica Pohlkamp, health care professional and originator of Celly Smellys wipes. Cell phones test more positively for potentially harmful microorganisms than any other daily object because they come into contact with so many parts of the body —- hands, faces, mouths. And skin hosts literally billions of germs —- tens of thousands of microbes on each square inch!"

As consumers become increasingly health and hygiene conscious —- not only with being physically fit, but also with removing external disease-causing agents from their lives —- they find technology presents its own challenges. Cell phone usage has increased 600 percent in the past decade, bringing with it a breeding ground for germs that live in dirt and grime. (very un-polite!) Experts recommend that, to maintain good performance and help reduce the exposure to germs, cell phone cleaning should be part of a daily routine.

"As a health care professional," says Celly Smellys originator, Pohlkamp, "I noticed people at the hospital unwittingly transferring dirt and germs from their dirty hands to their phones —- and then placing their phones near their faces, and other patients. I wanted to figure out a way to reduce the exposure to germs before they had a chance to spread."

"Celly Smellys were designed to be both useful and fun," adds Pohlkamp. "We know our product appeals to those who want to be hygienic and courteous as well as those parents watching out for their kids. While people are keeping their cell phones clean, we've given them the chance to express themselves with one of our three great fragrances. Teens seem to be especially excited about our fresh, clean scents —- Smelly Berry, Smelly Colada and Smelly Melon."
