I never thought I would see the day when we had to be extra careful about EVERY surface we touch, even in our own homes. The COVID-19 virus has changed the way we clean and handle things in our lives.
I don’t know about you, but I have hand sanitizers EVERY WHERE – at home, in my car, at work, attached to my purse, to name a few places. I never want to be caught without a way of sanitizing my hands when I’m out and about.
At home I make sure to sanitize frequently touched surfaces often. I know that my husband and our kids do a great job washing our hands frequently, but I don’t want to take a chance of even one COVID-19 germ finding it’s way into our home.
Before the pandemic I was really good about sanitizing frequently touched surfaces (I guess I’m a bit of a “germophobe”), but I’m even MORE vigilant these days.
We even wipe down everything that enters our home, as well as our cellphones and bags.
I wish we had the technology available to use like businesses do. I would love one of those “steamer” products that helps to kill the virus (they use them at schools too). I also wouldn’t mind one of those large wands of UV light that can also kill the virus.
Even though those products are not readily available to the public (not to mention I’m sure they are extremely expensive), you can still use that technology in your home.
A brand by the name of UVSoaps sent me one of their UVSoap UVC Surface Sanitizer.
According to the brand;
The UVSoap Surface Sanitizer serves the community and public health by eliminating germs and viruses on commonly touched surfaces.
Here is a brief video that shows the UVSoap UVC Surface Sanitizer in action, featured on the brand’s Facebook page (I’m sorry I couldn’t embed it in this post) – UVSoap UVC Surface Sanitizer Video.
The device is very small in size. It fits easily in my hand, and I have small hands. That makes it very portable, in case you would like to take it with you on the go (work, traveling…).
To use the UVC Surface Sanitizer, simply insert three AA batteries into the device.
The device has a built in suction cup, so you can easily install it over a faucet, door knob or other surface above the area you want to sanitize.
There are built in sensors on the device that can sense your presence. Shortly after you touch the surface below the device, two UVC LED lights deliver irradiation to a target surface and quickly eliminate germs and viruses. You can tell when it’s on because you’ll see a bright blue light.
There is nothing you need to do. There are no buttons you need to press, or switches to turn on/off, when you want the device to work. It does it automatically.
This is a unique way to stay safe and healthy 24/7.
I was sent a unit to review. I have tried placing it around our home to see what area I like best for it. The only problem is that the suction cup only works on certain surfaces. It won’t adhere to our door or on the walls by the faucets.
I am not a scientist, and I have no way of telling if the light is getting rid of germs and viruses. All I can do is assume it does what it’s suppose to do.
I would like to have other attachment options, so you can securely attach it to surfaces, most especially ones that a suction cup won’t work on.
