Verilux UVC Sanitizing Wands May Help People Achieve A Cleaner, Healthier New Year

Being a chemically sensitive individual and a germ-o-phobe certainly don't mix. Most germophobic people rely on stringent chemicals for cleaning. For me, that is simply not an option. I guess I should clarify, I am not a true, extremist germ-o-phobe, more like someone who just likes to keep a clean living space. I regularly attack dust mites by damp dusting and vacuum a few times a week to ensure that dust levels are low. Yet I still seem to suffer from annoying allergies and awaken each morning with a slightly stuffy nose on the good days. Last year I learned that I have a deviated septum (turns out that is a euphemism for a broken nose) that I acquired during my car accident 3 years ago. Since then, it has been hard to breathe easily, especially in other people's homes that may not be as clean or dust-free as mine.

I have been searching for a chemical-free cleaning solution for a long time and stumbled upon the Verilux UVC Sanitizing Wand on a blog. The blogger gave the product a glowing review which I now believe to be true. The wand comes in regular and travel size options, is battery-powered and utilizes the same UVC sanitizing technology that my toothbrush sanitizer does. It is 100% chemical free, odorless, and safe. It can be used to safely and efficiently sterilize any surface from counter tops to mattress tops. The only major drawback to the product is that it can take awhile to sanitize large surfaces like bedding if you are planning on sanitizing every square inch. The best thing about this product is its portability and the fact that you can take it with you when you travel to create a cleaner environment. Remember, killing all bacteria in your home isn't necessary so don't go overboard. However, this product can be particularly helpful during the cold and flu season. Any extra measure to avoid getting sick on top of dysautonomia is a good idea. Opt for the travel-size option since it offers the same technology at half the price and is more portable.


  1. This is cool! Never heard of anything like this! Thanx for sharing!

  2. No problem! :) I did my research on this one! I am becoming a smarter shopper, I read reviews before I buy things now, especially on bigger purchases like this one.
