If you're tired of constantly wiping your iPhone down to keep it clean, a New York-based company thinks it may have come up with a fashionable solution.

Tenerarca has developed a new line of eco-friendly cell phone cases that claim to kill germs. Each leather case comes with a special coating called "UPSKIN."

The company says the coating can eliminate up to 99.9 percent of harmful bacteria and shields against cell phone radiation.

Tech media website CNET reviewed the $70 cases and found that the company doesn't offer any lab test results to back up its claim.
