I don't know about you but I'm kind of a germaphobe. Long before baby, I never left home without my handy dandy bottle of hand sanitizer. Now with baby it's even worse. As he's getting older I'm getting a little less paranoid, hey, I'm actually starting to let him TOUCH STUFF outside of the home. At 7 months, I realize catching a cold probably won't kill him and will most likely help build his immune system. Still, yuck, this is New York City guys! Think of all the germs and diseases running amok on every single surface that your baby wants to touch and lick and gnaw on. Ick ick ick.
But we can't exactly wash with soap or douse in hand sanitizer every single thing, so I was pretty psyched to check out the SaniLite UV Hand Held Sanitizerby Baby's Journey:
Push the button for 2 seconds to turn it on. Wave it half an inch over whatever you want to sanitize for 20 seconds and bish bash bosh goodbye germy germs! Easy? YES! Does it work? Well, it says it kills 99.9% of germs, viruses, bacteria & allergens on hard surfaces. Short of using my hubby's suggestion (get someone with a cold to suck on a pen, then use the sanitizer and suck on the pen yourself and wait a week - HA!) I guess you just have to take their word for it. It definitely eliminates your helpless feeling when you want to clean baby's surroundings because let's face it sometimes a wipe isn't enough and you don't want to use hand sanitizer on something that will be in baby's mouth! And it is way smaller than that huge high chair / shopping cart cover I lug around - it's just barely bigger than a computer mouse, and has a safety mechanism that turns off the UV light if the device gets flipped upside down.
Baby's Journey has a ton of other great products for baby, so definitely check them out! In the meantime, get your own SaniLite for FREE by entering the giveaway now (US Residents ages 18 and older only):
