No matter how often you scrub and clean, microscopic critters will thrive in the warm, moist environment of the average
bathroom. In fact, a single toothbrush can harbor millions of microorganisms-- millions! That means it's a good idea to
sanitize something you stick in your mouth everyday, thus reducing your chances of infection.
The Violight's nifty design, mixed with the peace of mind it offers, make it a great addition to the bathroom.
Fortunately, the Violight VS100 Toothbrush Sanitizer offers an effective way to protect yourself and your family in a
quick and easy-to-use package. Toothbrushers everywhere will like this trusty little gadget. When we removed the
sanitizer from its box, we were impressed with the stylish design. It is simple and sleek, with a silver matte-finished
body and an opaque, light blue cap. While it looks like an ordinary toothbrush holder, it's actually furnished with a
powerful UV germicidal light bulb. After plugging in the sanitizer, we inserted our brushes and pressed the "VIO" button
on the front of the device. The bulb switched on, producing a soothing blue glow. In only ten short minutes the bulb
switched off and our toothbrushes were left clean and safely stored in the sanitizer.
According to independent studies, the Violight is able to kill 99.9 percent of bacteria living on your toothbrush.
Plus, it's ultra-safe to use, and you don't have to mess with dangerous, hot steam or boiling water. We used the
Violight over and over again for a week, sanitizing our brushes after each use-- up three times a day. The device
consistently did its job and, according to the manufacturer, one bulb should last over 2000 hours. This means you could
clean four brushes over two hundred times.
The Violight has some other practical features that deserve mention. First, the bulb is very easy to access and
replace when the time comes. Also, the cap snaps in and out of place with ease, revealing a removable drip tray.
Although the UV light eliminates the germs and bacteria, it was still nice to have access to the drip tray to clean
toothpaste residue and water marks. The Violight also features a non-slip base so you don't have to worry about it
slipping off a wet countertop. The real benefit of the Violight, though, is that it provides peace of mind and good
protection from all kinds of nastiness that might be lurking on your trusty bristles. Although toothbrushes don't feel
any different after being sanitized by the Violight, it's nice to know that your brushes are clean and germ free. After
finding out that the Centers for Disease Control has even stated that toothbrushes can be a significant source of
"potentially pathogenic organisms," we were glad the Violight was around. We recommend it for those who want the
ultimate in brushing safety. Without a doubt, the Violight sanitizer puts the "clean" back in oral hygiene.What's in the
