I was given a Sonicare UV Sanitizer and thought it would be a useful tool in this age of increasingly treatment-resistant germs.
It was a nightmare to open the package which required a box cutter and scissors to get through the inner, plastic packaging. Once open, it is a sleek unit. Clean Design. Easy enough to operate. I plugged it in and inserted our Sonicare toothbrush heads. Pressed the intuitive green power button and, through the window watched the blue light illuminate the inside of the unit. 10 minutes later and our toothbrush heads are "99% free of bacteria and viruses". Ok.
Sounds good. Looked good. But, does it really *do* anything? That was- and is - the burning question. I just found the money could be better spent.
Used the unit every day for a month. During that time, we both caught a common cold. I don't perceive use of the unit to have shortened the duration of either my cold or my husband's cold.
