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.

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 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.
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.Read more ›
