It's time to shine the light on germs! There are a lot of cleaning/ disinfecting products on the market. Some are made of eco friendly ingredients and some are harsh chemicals. If you have children, or even if you don't have children, you may want to check out the Purely Products Pocket Purifier. Who is Purely Products and what is a Pocket Purifier?
About Purely Products:
We are curious and discerning consumers looking for products for cleaner, healthier living. So, we develop the kind of products we want to use. We excel at translating proven technology (technology too cool to ignore, actually) into every day applications that make life better for everyone.
Living responsibly is a balancing act. We can help each other gain our footing. Purely puts products in your hands to make eco-friendly decisions for clean, healthy living easier, hopefully with the kind of compelling innovation, sterling quality and outright affordability that makes Purely Products an obviously smart choice.
The Pocket Purifier is a hand held germicidal light (uses 4 watt germicidal ultraviolet) that deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that destroys their ability to multiply. The Pocket Purifier sanitizes surfaces and objects with the same UV-C light that sterilizes surgical equipment. It is very light weight and compact. You can get the Pocket Purifier in black or pink. It's a great size for your purse, diaper bag or kitchen/bathroom drawer. It runs on 4 AA batteries (We use rechargeable batteries to cut back on waste of batteries). Where can you use the Purely Products Pocket Purifier?
- Let someone borrow your cell phone to make a call?
- Public restrooms (toilet seats, door knobs, etc.)
- Shopping cart handles at stores
- If you drop your purse on the movie theater floor
- Toys that are shared among children
- Cutting boards where you slice raw meat
- Computer keyboard and mouse
- Shared gym/ exercise equipment
- Hotel remote controls, bed spreads, etc.
- Baby pacifiers dropped on the floor
There are so many other possibilities where you can use the Pocket Purifier. I used ours on the door knobs through out the house, on our computer keyboard and mouse, the handle on the Wal Mart shopping cart, both my cutting boards, the door handles to the refrigerator and freezer and toys that Little B and Baby B share. Yes, I still use my eco friendly cleaning products (vinegar and water, baking soda, etc.) but its great to know that when we are out in public I have a quick and easy solution to my family catching cooties. We are traveling to a near by aquarium and zoo in 2 weeks and I am glad to take the Pocket Purifier along with us. All those hands on activities at the aquarium and the animal feeding at the zoo. I'd go through bottles of hand sanitizer on this trip. We also take frequent camping trips with my parents so I'll be taking it with us camping as well.
You can purchase the Pocket Purifier for $29.99 from Purely Products.

Purely products even equipped a medical missions team going to Haiti after the earthquake with Pocket Purifiers to make their job in extreme conditions a bit easier. They also have EMT crews that use the Pocket Purifier.
Purely Products also carries other products, such as the Purely Products SunMate. The SunMate puts information on the intensity of ultraviolet rays right in the palm of your hand, so you can make preventive decisions on sun care protection. So sun-savvy in fact, the compact, lightweight SunMate was named "Best Beach Tech" by Shape Magazine (May 2009). The SunMate alerts to possible over-exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. It's easy to use just push the little white button while your outside and the LED indicators light up between 1 and 5 depending upon the intensity of the UV light. With skin cancer known to be in our family, I'm glad to take our SunMate with us any time we are outdoors. If I can help prevent my family from continuing the trend of skin problems due to the suns UV rays then I'm all for it.
