Kill toothbrush germs wherever you go

The 'Violight' now comes in travel size.


We must admit that, as far as germ-centric issues are concerned, the toothbrush has to rank at or near the top of the list. And even though some uber-devices claim to sterilize practically any object they encounter, we'd feel more comfortable with something that's been developed specifically for oral hygiene.

Now we finally have just such an item that's made for travel--which is ideal because, as any bona fide germaphobe will tell you, the hotel room is the ultimate breeding ground for cooties. The scientific-sounding "Violight VIO200 Travel Toothbrush Sanitizer" is the portable version of the countertop station featured in this space earlier this year. It claims to zap 99 percent of germs with its UV death rays in 7 minutes, according to ProductDose, making it worth every penny of its $28 price if it works as promised.

Now if we can just figure out how to carry a touchless faucet with us, we might actually be able to use a hotel sink without a surgical mask.
