VIOlight Toothbrush Sanitizer Information Report Did You Know...? - A number of studies suggest that oral health is associated with general health. Advanced gum disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, premature delivery in pregnant women, and stroke. - Researchers have found more than 10,000,000 bacteria living on a single toothbrush. - Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that can survive on toothbrushes. - Viruses that cause colds, flu, and fever blisters can survive for many days on toothbrushes. - Droplets produced by flushing toilets can harbor bacteria and viruses that can remain airborne long enough to settle on surfaces.
Thus, a person could acquire an infection from an aerosol produced by a toilet. This is something that has always been in the back of my mind, but what can you do…You need the toothbrush anyways. VIOlight uses UV Light to kill germs and bacteria.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light, but longer than X-rays, in the range 10 nm to 400 nm, and energies from 3 eV to 124 eV. It is named because the spectrum consists of electromagnetic waves with frequencies higher than those that humans identify as the color violet. (Definition taken from Wikipidia).
It is really hard to believe that shining a light on a surface or item would kill germs. Actually the right kind of ultraviolet light is an extremely effective germicide, able to kill more than 99 percent of germs. VIOlight uses the UV technology to provide consumers with a stylish and modern design.
I have always been very interested in this kind of technology and actually own a few different products that utilize UV light. In this opportunity I want to introduce you to the Violight Personal/Travel UV Toothbrush Sanitizer.
The Violight Personal/Travel UV Toothbrush Sanitizer features a metallic finish, removable drip tray for easy cleaning, and brilliant UV light , to keep your toothbrush bacteria free while you are on the go or simply want a compact …very compact space saving tooth brush sanitizer.
The UV light gets rid of 99.99% of germs, including H1N1, E.Coli, Staph, and Salmonella. In addition, the Violight Personal/Travel UV Toothbrush Sanitizer unit comes with a free tooth bush, but in addition, it holds all manual toothbrushes and small electric toothbrush heads so you should be able to use it with your favorite toothbrush brand.
The unit features a really nice and attractive design that is battery operated and has an auto shut-off in under 7 minutes so you do not have to worry about keeping an eye on it. The unit as I mentioned, is thin and very portable and while 90% of the case has that metallic material, the part where the head of the tooth brush goes is actually clear plastic so you can see the tooth brush.
The Violight Personal/Travel UV Toothbrush Sanitizer, is really easy to carry around and a great tool for people that are often on the go or spend a lot of time outside the home and like to carry a toothbrush with them. To keep those pearly whites healthy and clean at all times.
The toothbrush sanitizer is very easy to use, all you need to do is close the top to activate the UV light that as I mentioned will auto shut off (the unit requires 2 AA batteries that are not included with the unit). The Violight Personal/Travel UV Toothbrush Sanitizer has a retail price of 29.95.
