Pocket Purifier Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED


 Did you know that Desktops have almost 21,000 germs per square inch, phones have more tan 25,000 and toilet seats have only 49!!!  I am not super obsessed with germs, but I don't like to touch things that I know are very germy.  I was sent a Pocket Purifier to review from Purely Products and this things helps with eliminating germs.  Purely Products is an eco-friendly company focused on bringing to market products that make clean, healthy living easier for families – all the while helping kids.

     The Pocket Purifier is a handheld Germ-eliminating light.  The Pocket Purifier eliminates 99.9% of Germs that cause colds and flu, plus e-coli, salmonella, and staphylococcus.  The Pocket Purifier uses built in 4 watt germicidal ultraviolet light.  It is the same UV technology used in hospitals to sterilize surgical equipment.  Built in 4-watt germicidal ultraviolet light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens destroying their ability to multiply.  The Pocket Purifier uses 4 AA batteries (not included) to operate. 
      OK, this sounds great but like my husband asked.. How does this work?  Well, I was sent an information page on how the pocket purifier works.  The charts below were part of what was sent to me.

      So the Ultraviolet photons harm the DNA molecules of living organisms in different ways.  So in short if the cellular processes or the DNA of the germs are broken then they can no longer function as normal.  If the germs can not function as they normally do then they are not longer harmful.  My husband also asked How do we know this is what is really happening?  Well, that is a harder question for me to answer.  I am honestly not sure how I know it works, but I do know that Purely Products has had lots of tests done to ensure they work.
     The Pocket Purifier is easy to use.  Just slide the switch to on and hold the pocket purifier 1/2 to 1 inch away and expose what you want to sanitize for 10-15 seconds.  You could purify everything with this, your home, your workplace, baby's toys and more.  You know how many times your baby drops his or her pacifier.. YUCK!  Well the pocket purifier is safe to clean babies pacifier and it only takes less time than it does to wash with soap and water.  I know my son loves to play with my cell phone and those things get really gross.  It is safe to use the pocket purifier on your cell phone.  In addition the Pocket Purifier is a flashlight too!


     I was very excited when my Pocket Purifier came.  I had to open it up right away.  I wanted to sanitize everything.  I took it to work and sanitized my computer keyboard at work and the mouse on my computer.  I went to visit classrooms and had it in my purse.  I used it to clean my cell phone, door knobs, and the toilet handle.  You know those really gross public bathrooms that you don't want to touch anything!?!  The Pocket Purifier is great to clean those toilet handles, door handles, and more.  The Pocket Purifier is small and lightweight which means you can keep it in your diaper bag or purse for use anywhere. 
     I also tried it in the kitchen.  I used it on my cutting board and the handle on the sink.  I know that cutting boards can get gross and you never know if they are really clean.  It only takes a few minutes to clean a large cutting board like mine.  I also always worry about the handle on the faucet.  I often wash my hands while cooking and the surface that I touch the most is the kitchen faucet.  To me the faucet is a high germ area.


     I love this thing!!  I keep it in my purse so I can use it anywhere I am.  I have used it at work and at home.  I really wish I had this back when Jayden was first born.  I would have used it on everything!!  But don't worry I will use it on everything now.  The Pocket Purifier has a 6 month warranty. Also, you can purchase replacement bulbs from Purely Products when needed.  Purely Products has many other wonderful items too.. the one I now have my eye on is the Sun Mate

    The founder of  Purely Products along with his wife founded DiaperLove.org, a non profit that provides diapers to children in need.  DiaperLove.org accepts donations of money and diapers.  Also, a portion of each sale on Purely Products.com goes to DiaperLove.org! Just another great reason to purchase one of their fantastic products

Buy it:  You can purchase the Pocket Purifier from Purely Products for $29.95.  And it comes in Black or Pink.

    If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

    Exciting things going on around here!
