zapi.

how clean is your toothbrush?

i don't know about you but sometimes i feel icky thinking about germs in the bathroom crawling around my toothbrush.  which was why i found this thing i saw in target (i think) interesting!



"Zapi uses germicidal ultraviolet light to kill 99.9% of germs on your toothbrush in just minutes.  Zapi comes in two hot new colors, purple and pink, plus white, blue, and orange to match your personal style.  All of them come with a free toothbrush, but they also work with your favorite manual brush or electric head.  Your toothbrush is germ free and safely stored inside Zapi ready for the next time you brush."

zapi is a favorite among celebrities.  i know for a fact that both ellen and oprah love these thingies!  all you have to do is to insert your favorite toothbrush, press the button and zapi will clean it quickly.  it turns off automatically, too!



the zapi costs $29.95.  but it's not too high a price to pray to have germ-free toothbrushes, right?  they also have one for travelers.  now that's something that interests me.  i hate storing my toothbrush in those plastic containers because after a while, there's some kind of build up around the head area.




"The Violight Personal/Travel Toothbrush Sanitizer uses our germ-eliminating UV technology in a sleek, go-anywhere package. The germicidal light activates as soon as you close the lid, and in 6 minutes your toothbrush is sanitized and safely stored until you're ready to brush again. The Violight Personal/Travel Sanitizer has a deluxe metallic finish, long battery life, and includes a removable drip-tray for easy cleaning. Perfect for you or as a gift of health --- whether it stays at home, goes to the office, gym, or on a trip." 




the portable zapi is also $29.95 and also includes a free toothbrush.  there are more products on the zapi website but these two are my top picks.  

anyone here who has a zapi?

  8. Great idea, but I have never seen that kind of invention in our back of the hill country...

    Thanks for showing though, and thanks for sharing with us.

    Your comment on Abigail's dress being see through, maybe she wears that on purpose.

    Have a super day.

  30. What a fantastic product. I shall investigate further. Dental hygene is terribly important for ones overall health - thats what my dentist told me last time I went. I go every 6 months even though I am terrified of the whole thing. xx

  31. mommy judy. they have those eggs that could hold two or more toothbrushes. but the travel ones hold only 1. and yes! i've seen some in beauty bar (though i'm not sure if the brand's zapi) :)

    michelle. no problem!

    ReplyDelete
