No matter how often you scrub and clean, microscopic critters will thrive in the warm, moist environment of the average bathroom. In fact, a single toothbrush can harbor millions of microorganisms-- millions! That means it's a good idea to sanitize something you stick in your mouth everyday, thus reducing your chances of infection.
The Violight's nifty design, mixed with the peace of mind it offers, make it a great addition to the bathroom.
When we removed the sanitizer from its box, we were impressed with the stylish design. It is simple and sleek, with a silver matte-finished body and an opaque, light blue cap. While it looks like an ordinary toothbrush holder, it's actually furnished with a powerful UV germicidal light bulb. After plugging in the sanitizer, we inserted our brushes and pressed the "VIO" button on the front of the device. The bulb switched on, producing a soothing blue glow. In only ten short minutes the bulb switched off and our toothbrushes were left clean and safely stored in the sanitizer.
According to independent studies, the Violight is able to kill 99.9 percent of bacteria living on your toothbrush. Plus, it's ultra-safe to use, and you don't have to mess with dangerous, hot steam or boiling water. We used the Violight over and over again for a week, sanitizing our brushes after each use-- up three times a day. The device consistently did its job and, according to the manufacturer, one bulb should last over 2000 hours. This means you could clean four brushes over two hundred times.
The real benefit of the Violight, though, is that it provides peace of mind and good protection from all kinds of nastiness that might be lurking on your trusty bristles. Although toothbrushes don't feel any different after being sanitized by the Violight, it's nice to know that your brushes are clean and germ free. After finding out that the Centers for Disease Control has even stated that toothbrushes can be a significant source of "potentially pathogenic organisms," we were glad the Violight was around. We recommend it for those who want the ultimate in brushing safety. Without a doubt, the Violight sanitizer puts the "clean" back in oral hygiene.
What's in the Box
Violight VS100 Toothbrush Sanitizer, removable drip tray and one UV germicidal light bulb.
The VIOlight Toothbrush Sanitizer and Storage System, designed by Philippe Starck, uses safe, clean ultraviolet light to kill up to 99.9% of the germs it comes into contact with on your toothbrush. The unit holds up to four toothbrushes, including children's and electric toothbrush heads. Using Violight requires no extra steps; simply brush, store, and sanitize!

I chose this product because we use multiple brushes in a day with various head styles. It accommodates all of the brushes! Read morePublished 1 month ago by RuthHelene
I ruined the first one trying to clean inside and water got on microchip. I will dry clean this one, but obviously we like it, because we bought the exact same one again!Published 1 month ago by Deanne Kramer
The idea of this is the ultra-violet light disinfects your toothbrush as they dry. The holding part is a bit flimsy. After a couple months, it stopped working. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Rene Wolk
this is the second VIOlight I've had. the first one was a gift. I broke one of the little coils that the battery needed to connect, so I just bought this one. It is great.Published 2 months ago by JacMar
