VIOlight VS100 Toothbrush Sanitizer Kills Germs using Ultraviolet Light

Updated on March 15, 2011

 

Your toothbrush is one of those personal items that get a lot of use but not a lot of thought. The point of brushing your teeth is to remove plaque and germs so that gum disease does not have the opportunity to start. Bad breath – although not always caused by not brushing your teeth – is something that we want to avoid. Brushing your teeth first thing after waking up is a great way to feel refreshed.

Where does your tooth brush reside after you get through with it? Is it tossed into a drawer? Is it laid on the vanity top until the next time? Is it placed in a cup next to the bathroom sink?

All germs found in the mouth are not bad but some germs can be enough to make you sick. Flu germs for example can live in warm damp areas just like in the typical bathroom. So what do you do about it? It is not feasible to replace your toothbrush daily. The VIOlight VS100 Toothbrush and Storage System may be an answer.

The VIOlight is said to kill nearly 99.9 percent of germs such as the flu bug. It uses ultra-violet light to kill the germs. The storage system holds up to four toothbrushes and has a lid to cover them while not in use. I use an electric toothbrush and I could use the VIOlight for my toothbrush heads as well.

There is a travel version of the VIOlight Toothbrush Sanitizer as well.

The sanitation process is an easy one. A single button activates the ultra-violet light and after 10 minutes the unit shuts off. The light bulb is rated to last at least 2000 hours so your toothbrushes could be cleaned more than 200 times.

The VIOlight Toothbrush Sanitizer looks good. It has a modern look to match the technology that it possesses. The design is also convenient. The replaceable ultra-violet light is easy to access and to replace.

Ultraviolet light is a known germ killer. It is commonly used to clean water, air, eating utensils and medical instruments. You may have heard that a toothbrush kept in the bathroom can have fecal matter on it from particles floating in the air after a toilet is flushed. That is a good enough reason for me to try just about anything to keep my toothbrush fresh.
