Sanitize your Toothbrush {#giveaway}

I love the way my teeth feel after I've brushed them.  There is nothing better than a clean mouth.  Then, I started to think about what could be lurking on my toothbrush.  YUCK!

Even after being rinsed visibly clean, toothbrushes can remain contaminated with potentially pathogenic organisms.
.....The Centers for Disease Control



Beat the germs that linger on the toothbrush by stopping them dead in their tracks with ZAPI Toothbrush Sanitizer.

The Zapi UV toothbrush sanitizer lets you store your toothbrush and eliminate germs at the same time.  Safe and pure UV light eliminates up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria from your toothbrush.

Zapi kills strep, staph, e.coli, salmonella, listeria, and the H1N1 virus in minutes

My family received the toothbrush sanitizer and now I have no idea how or why we functioned without one for so long?

I've always thought toothbrushes were icky, and encouraged my family to replace and change them often.  Replacing a toothbrush every few months is still a good idea, but in the mean time using  Violight  daily has changed the way I look at my toothbrush.

The whole idea of using a toothbrush is to keep the mouth clean and free from bacteria, so it only makes sense to start with a bacteria-free toothbrush.


The Zapi Violight Toothbrush Sanitizer requires batteries, and works just as good on a manual toothbrush as it does with an electric toothbrush.  Place your toothbrush inside and in only a few minutes your toothbrush is virtually germ-free.  Each time you pick up your toothbrush, it is like taking a new toothbrush out of the package.


The Violight Toothbrush Sanitizer uses UV light technology.  It comes in several bright colours as well as cute characters.  The sanitizer sits nicely on the bathroom counter, and is discreet.

If you have teeth which you like to brush, then a Zapi is a must-have on the washroom counter!

Check out Violight for the Zapi and other sanitizing products, which will stop icky right in its tracks.  {Sign up to receive their email blasts which will entitle you to a 10% discount}

I was actually thinking about this very issue tonight because my daughter left her toothbrush on the side of the sink.

I have been concerned about germs and have been looking for a covered container for the bathroom countertop, but a sanitizer is a much better idea!

robynl said...

I have been concerned about our toothbrushes and if in doubt I replace with a new one sooner that I would normally. I keep each toothbrush separate( mine and yours)

I have been concerned with germs on toothbrushes and have just used peroxide, not sure if that did any good as I didn't realize until your post it could be that bad:(

Yes, I am concerned about germs on our brushes. My brush has a built in sanitizer but this would be perfect for my husband's and kids brushes.

Lisa Smith said...

If my tooth brush hits the floor it goes strait in the garbage, I can't bring myself to boil it with potty training twins

Brutus Duffy said...

I soak my toothbrush in Listerine after i use it.

Jacqueline S said...

I have always been concerned and I usually store my toothbrush in a travel case but sometimes I think that just doubles the germs!

nancy said...

I'm concern about my toothbrush all the time. I have a protector/holder thing for my toothbrush. There's suction cups where you can stick it to your mirror. Plus, mold and mildew won't build up at the end of the brush.

amanda Phillips said...

My boyfriend and I pour mouthwash (the kind that contains alcohol or peroxide) over ours as we swish it around in our mouth. Kills two birds with one stone.

Missy L said...

Yes I'm a germophobe! I change out my toothbrush frequently.

WendyLady33 said...

I do the norm - floss/brush and hope they don't give me to much grief!
