Sometimes I’m shocked at how I let my toothbrush fall into a state of overuse and obvious unsuitableness for entrance into my mouth. Lucky for me I stumbled upon this must-have unit—and when I say “must-have,” I mean it. Every home should consider having one, for the sake of hygiene. The VIOlight Toothbrush Sanitizer utilizes germicidal UV light—the same kind used by dentists—which apparently kills 99.9% of germs in as little as 10 minutes. That is SOOOO much more effective than my current toothbrush holder, which basically just holds the toothbrush upright and stationary—an easy landing pad for airborne germs and bacteria. Capable of sanitizing conventional toothbrushes and electric toothbrush heads, the VIOlight plugs into a wall outlet and is about the size of a cup. At $49.95, I think the VIOlight makes a case for inclusion in every bathroom across America. And the germs of the world are dealt another severe blow.
