VIOlight UV Wand Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}

I am pretty sure I have confessed on my blog that I have real issues with germs. I want to feel confident that surfaces my family touch are clean and sanitized. Well, this morning my little boy woke up sick, sneezing and with a runny nose. I decided his illness is a perfect opportunity for me to get busy with me new UV Wand from VIOlight.
If you haven't heard of VIOlight, they offer products to ease mother's minds everywhere. From convenient to cute toothbrush sanitizers, dentures to whitening trays sanitizers, UltraViolet Germicidal Bulb, and of course, the UV Wand, we can rest assure we are making the extra effort to keep germs away from our families.
I had a great time using my VIOlight UV Wand. It is quite simple and safe to use. You begin by pressing the on button for 3 seconds or until the green light begins to flash. You release the button and then press again. I thought this was a great child proof method. It actually took me reading the instructions in order for me to figure out how to turn it on. I took that as a positive. Also, if you hold the wand upright, it will automatically shut it self off. This way, if your child happens to get a hold of the wand and also somehow figures out how to turn it on, they won't be able to flash it in their eyes or flash it around the room without it turning off.

I figured my laptop is probably pretty disgusting, so I decided I would sanitize it with my UV Wand. Now, you can't actually see the difference. In fact, it may or may not actually be sanitized, but I did slowly move the wand across my keyboard for about two minutes in hopes that it would work. I honestly believe it did.
From the VIOlight site:
Sanitizing around your home and office has never been easier. Just wave the UV Wand over any object or surface, and the germicidal UV light kills up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria. Portable & lightweight.
