Violight Toothbrush Care



Your toothbrush cleans your teeth, but what cleans your toothbrush? Good point, I never thought about how disgusting a toothbrush might get. The mere thought of it sells me on the newly designed VIOlight. Fashioned by Philippe Starck, the VIOlight can be found in Time Magazines Coolest Inventions of 2004: "…a single toothbrush can harbor millions of microorganisms, which translate into harmful bacteria-— bacteria that thrive in the warm, moist environment of the average bathroom." The VIOlight uses a germicidal UV bulb which cooks 99.9% of all germs right out. A family sized unit houses 4 brushes for $49.95 and will save you from all sorts of yucky microorganisms. --Josh Spear
