Pocket Purifier...Review & Giveaway!

I know I am not the only one who fears germs.  I don't have an irrational fear (I can still leave the house!) but I definitely cringe over shopping carts, public restrooms and play food at the museum.  I feel like I can just see germs crawling just waiting to get my kiddos sick with the next bug that is floating around.  Blech!  When I was approached to review The Pocket Purifier by Purely Products, I knew this one was for me.  Here's why...

While the majority of us simply try not to think about it, the reality is that we touch hundreds of surfaces every day that are crawling with germs and bacteria. Airplane restrooms, hotel remotes, door handles, the bottom purses, the soles of shoes – the list of places we encounter hidden germs without washing our hands is endless. Traditionally these surfaces are not easy sanitize, but The Pocket Purifier is revolutionizing the way America cleans by providing a simple and effective way to eliminate germs and bacteria from any surface in seconds.

A compact germicidal light from Purely Products, the Pocket Purifier uses the same UV-C light used to sterilize surgical instruments to eliminate 99.9% of germs that cause colds, and flu, plus e-coli, salmonella, mold, fungus and MRSA staph (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus). Whether you need to sterilize the changing station for your child in a public restroom, want to clean the handle of the grocery store shopping cart or need to sanitize your cutting board after slicing raw meat, the Pocket Purifier is easy to use and lightweight so you can bring it anywhere.


Powered by 4 AA batteries, the Pocket Purifier is operated by holding the device about one inch above the surface you want to clean for 10-15 seconds. A 4-watt germicidal ultraviolet light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens destroying their ability to multiply and sanitizes the item you are trying to cleanse. For enhanced safety, the Pocket Purifier features a specially designed UV-Lid™ that blocks UV light exposure to your eyes and skin.

When I received this, I have to say, I was pretty impressed by the claims.  I am all for ridding what I call "oogie" places of germs.  The design is slim enough to keep in your purse or diaper bag for quick access.  I love that I can just scan my trust Pocket Purifier over something and "poof" those germs are gone.  The other day I had it at the museum.  Naturally the minute we walked through the door A&W had to use the potty.  We all crammed into the stall (blech!!).  While I was there I changed Baby R as well.  I used my pocket purifier on the changing table and then on the bottom of my bag which I had dropped on the "oogie" floor.  Truth be told, I felt very "CSI" about the whole thing.  Something about scanning items with that UV light makes you feel like a pro!


The Pocket Purifier can be purchased by visiting Purely Products and you can buy it now for just $11.99!
