Product Description

Product Description

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! Manufacturer contact information: 888 882 2367

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.
Fortunately, the Violight VS100 Toothbrush Sanitizer offers an effective way to protect yourself and your family in a quick and easy-to-use package. Toothbrushers everywhere will like this trusty little gadget.

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 Violight has some other practical features that deserve mention. First, the bulb is very easy to access and replace when the time comes. Also, the cap snaps in and out of place with ease, revealing a removable drip tray. Although the UV light eliminates the germs and bacteria, it was still nice to have access to the drip tray to clean toothpaste residue and water marks. The Violight also features a non-slip base so you don't have to worry about it slipping off a wet countertop.

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.

We've had this product for about 3 years, and have never had a problem. We make sure to shake excess water off our electric toothbrushes, pop them in the sanitizer, and they're ready for next use. Our bulb just burned out after use four times per day for three years (that's why I'm on Amazon). We have not had any issues with mold or mildew growing in the product. I do clean the unit about once every two or three months - I just soak the drip cup and removable lid in a weak bleach solution. After beginning to use the product, we noticed a decrease in cold and flu transmission throughout the family. In addition, my husband's gum health improved. I believe if you perform simple maintenance on the device, just like replacing your toothbrush or toothbrush head every six months, you will be thrilled with this product. It's well worth it.

Update: After viewing the company's website for replacement bulbs, I found out that if you wipe the battery contacts with rubbing alcohol, if the bulb is intact (very helpful diagram on co.'s website), the light will work again. So, I didn't need a replacement bulb after all!

I can't scientifically prove this works, but, keeping in mind that barbers have been using ultaviolet light to sterilize tools they use for decades, and it's also used in the

food service industry.

I noticed one review where the reviewer mentioned that there were germs remaining

after being removed from the unit. That reviewer may not be aware of the fact that you

don't necessarilly have to wipe out the germs, just lower the count to the point that they can't colonize a host. Thereby giving you the result you want---illness are not passed on.

We've had this unit a year now, and we have not had any instances of a cold or fever producing illness lingering longer then the usual coarse for an illness.

This saves us having to throw out tooth brushes after an illness, and in fact allows us to keep brushing during and after the illness without worrying or wasting money.

My wifes a physician, and I'm an ER RN and we both love having this unit.

It's always interesting when you come across a product you're considering and find that reviewers have had such polar opposite experiences with the product in question. There's always bound to be some negative reviews of any given product and I think we've all learned to take that in stride. But, it would be dishonest of me if I said that I hadn't changed my mind about purchasing some products based on even just a few negative reviews. In the case of this toothbrush sanitizer there are clearly enough negative reviews to give me pause. Fortunately for me, my Violife was a gift (from an orthodontist no less) so I never read all of the reviews here that most likely would have swayed me away from this purchase.

I intend no disrespect to other reviewers who have described their experiences with mildew and mold growing in this unit, but when I read their reviews and contrast those with my own experience using this product I am left wondering if they aren't perhaps blaming the product when their use habits are more likely responsible for the problem? I can imagine that if one were to regularly put a dripping wet toothbrush in this Violife, or one that hadn't been rinsed thoroughly even, the build up of "toothpaste scum" is going to be a natural result. Over time having a pool of this scum on the bottom of the sanitizer or any surface will likely promote the growth of mold/mildew. It sounds to me like they are using this sanitizing device as perhaps their toothbrush holder and not only as an appliance to sanitize.

It isn't necessarily their fault if they are using this sanitizer as a toothbrush storage device as the listing title here on Amazon specifically calls out that use.

Used this product for a few months and just assumed it was working. Then one night my husband took a close look at his toothbrush and there was mold on the end of it. When we examined the inside of the Sanitizer closely we found that there was a variety of gunk, mold etc inside. If these things can grow right next to the bulb how much do you think it is doing for your toothbrush?

Wow, what a waste. Not only are the other negative reviews correct, the poor design on this product had me immersing my toothbrush head into a pool of collected water at the bottom of this "sanitizer". This seems to be a well put together product because of its sleek and cool looking design. However, as the saying goes, "appearances can be decieving". Aside from this, the disinfective qualities of this product are probably just as effective as letting a toothbrush naturally air dry.

We just bought our 2nd VIOlight tootbrush sanitizer, after the "on" button on the previous one disintegrated. Up to this point, we thought it worked very well. But if you use an electric toothbrush, you might want to avoid this sanitizer, as it's now sent with 2 different sizes of "VIOpegs" (to hold the shorter brushes up) -- only 2 of each size. The 2 longer pegs seem to work only with very short, round brushes. Our Sonicare heads don't work with the 2 longer pegs, but when we called the company, they said that was it -- they wouldn't/couldn't send 2 more of the shorter pegs. So we're left to use no pegs for at least 2 of our heads, but then the toothbrush heads fall so far into the top of the sanitizer that they're hard to get out. All in all, this model doesn't work well for electric toothbrush heads such as Sonicare.
