Boeing developing self-cleaning airplane lavatory

(CNN) – It may sound just too good to be true; but Boeing says it’s developing self-cleaning lavatories for its passenger jets.

The company says its technology would use with UV light, which kills more than 99-percent of germs.

The entire lavatory would be illuminated for three seconds after being used.

And toilet seats would raise automatically to make sure the entire surface is exposed to UV light.

The technology would use a type of UV light that’s not harmful to people.

Boeing says the project is still in the testing phase.
