iZap Travel Toothbrush Sanitizer

When I received by Sonicare FlexCare last fall I was delighted that it came with a UV sanitizer to keep the bristles with a decreased germ count. Now there is a way to do UV sanitizing of manual toothbrushes as well. A company called VIOlight makes a selection of these devices for your home and travel needs. The portable travel model is called the iZap. Here is info from the company website:

Small, Sleek and Packed with Power
VIOlight is the first toothbrush sanitization system made to look like it belongs in your home, not a laboratory. Designed by the world-renown Philippe Starck, VIOlight promises to fit in with any bathroom d├ęcor. Small and sleek, VIOlight is the size of an average cup or toothbrush holder. And, since it doubles as a sanitizer and holder, it won’t take up any extra space in your bathroom.

Family Friendly
With enough room to hold four toothbrushes of all sizes — including kids’ and electric heads — VIOlight is versatile enough to meet all your family needs.

Easy to Use, Safe and Effective
Independent tests prove that VIOlight gets rid of up to 99.9% of bacteria living on your toothbrush. Unlike other sanitization devices, which use hot steam, it’s virtually impossible to burn yourself using the VIOlight. That’s because VIOlight doesn’t rely on heat or boiling water to get the job done. It uses germicidal UV light bulb power, proven effective to kill germs and bacteria. You simply brush, rinse, place your toothbrush in the cup-sized holder and, with the push of a button, the sanitizer starts to kill those unwanted germs.

Maintenance Free and Affordable
The VIOlight germicidal UV bulb is rated to last over 2000 hours, and only needs replacing every one to two years, depending on use. It comes with a skid-proof bottom and a removable drip tray for easy cleaning.
