Did You Know...?

    * A number of studies suggest that oral heath is associated with general health. Advanced gum disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, premature delivery in pregnant women, and stroke.

    * Researchers have found more than 10,000,000 bacteria living on a single toothbrush.

    * Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that can survive on toothbrushes.

    * Viruses that cause colds, flu, and fever blisters can survive for many days on toothbrushes.

    * Droplets produced by flushing toilets can harbor bacteria and viruses that can remain airborne long enough to settle on surfaces. Thus, a person could acquire an infection from an aerosol produced by a toilet.

We all know that the bathroom is a breeding ground for bacteria yet, most of us have our toothbrushes on the counter, uncovered. When you actually think about what may be lurking on the item you put in your mouth every day, it's shudder worthy.

But, now there is a company and product that can ease our minds. VIOlight is a toothbrush sanitizer that stops the bacteria and the patent-pending system eliminates up to 99.9% of the bacteria that thrives on our toothbrushes.

How does it work?
The same technology used in hospitals, a blue-violet glow from a germicidal UV bulb erradicates the bacteria. It only takes minutes and the bulb automatically shuts off when the process is complete. Two studies in testing laboratories have found the the VIOlight Toothbrush Sanitizer eliminates 99.9% of bacteria tested on toothbrushes. VIOlight was selected as one of Time Magazine's most amazing inventions of 2004.

Will your toothbrush fit?
Yes! The Violight Countertop sanitizer works with all electric toothbrushes, including Sonicare, Oral-B, and other brands, as well as all non-electric toothbrushes. I was actually worried that my son's brush wouldn't fit in the sanitizer because it's a novelty superhero toothbrush but, it absolutely fits.

As soon as we got our VIOlight Countertop Sanitizer I set it up, inserted our toothbrushes and turned it on. The kids love the glow of the blue light and I love knowing that once the cycle is complete, our toothbrushes are no longer icky breeding grounds for all the bacteria. When it comes to peace of mind about your family's health, VIOlight really gives reassurance. The system is so incredibly easy to use and something that I just don't think any family should be without. Our kids come into contact with so many germs and bacteria all day. At least we can make sure that we aren't knowingly putting more bacteria in our mouths when we are trying to clean our teeth.
