Handheld Ultraviolet Light Sanitizers

You’ve seen them for sale all over Facebook with everything going on, and we’re officially jumping on the bandwagon.  These little handheld ultraviolet lights have the ability to help sanitize surfaces of viruses, bacteria and pathogens.  When bacteria, viruses and protozoa are exposed to the germicidal wavelengths of UV light, they are rendered incapable of reproducing and infecting.  UV light wands are frequently used in hospitals, and now is a popular gadget to have at home.

There are a few different brands on the market, but the one we are liking is Mobile Klean.  It’s frequently in stock, fairly priced at about $39, super portable and feels sturdy and well-built.

The first half of 2020 was a wake-up call for how we deal with germs in our everyday lives, and as the world re-opens it will be increasingly important to sanitize surfaces such as your car, restaurant tables, office desk, and even public restrooms.  The UV light emitted by Mobile Klean is safe on electronics, so we find ourselves blasting our iPhones with its sanitizing beam of light multiple times a day.

**08/11/2022 Update: Due to Mobile Klean’s popularity and recent Facebook advertising, they seem to be back-ordered a few weeks and the pre-order list is apparently growing very rapidly.  Here is a working link with 50% discount code applied to order a Mobile Klean UV Light if you are interested.
