Have any of you ever seen that Mythbusters episode where they confirmed that it was pretty much impossible to keep your toothbrush free of fecal coliforms bacteria? If so, have you been totally freaked out about your toothbrush arrangement ever since? And have you ever watched in disgust as your ‘new to tooth-brushing’ toddler sticks his or her toothbrush all over the sink that maybe you’ve been less than diligent about keeping spotless?

Fear not my friend, Violight is here to save the day.

These products are proven to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria on your toothbrush with a nifty germicidal UV light. Including….wait for it…….H1N1 Swine Flu Virus. They accommodate any kind of toothbrush, including electric heads. Violight has all sorts of models for all sorts of needs (including this little cutie, which I need to have) & even provide a razor sanitizer. We are currently using The Original Countertop Toothbrush Sanitizer and it is AWESOME. It fits 4 brushes and sits neatly on our sink without taking up a lot of room; and because it’s designed by the amazing Phillippe Starck, it’s pretty too. Now, I love my family, but I also love knowing that our toothbrushes aren’t hanging around in the same cup sharing all kids of cooties. Violight prevents cross-contamination & sanitizes your brush in about 10 minutes. A pretty blue glow lets you know it’s doing it’s job. I was also just informed that you can put pacifiers in the Dental Spa. I so need one of those now!

So far, we all love our Violight. V loves pushing the button and watching it glow and I no longer live in fear of what is *actually* on my toothbrush. Joel & Jonathan of Violight have graciously offered to giveaway a family sanitizer unit to one of my readers, aren’t they cool? So, to enter, head over to violight.com, check it out and leave me a comment with another favorite product of theirs. A winner will be chosen at random (probably by Violet picking names out of a hat) on Halloween (you have until midnight on Oct 30th to enter). Just in time to brush away all those potential candy cavities! Tweet it & I’ll give you an extra entry!
