The No-Funk Toothbrush

This isn’t something you think about often, but it should be… the funk in your toothbrush. We are in such a hurry these days, especially the mornings, to get the kids out the door, to get to work, get to the gym, etc., we neglect our bristled friend.

You know the one that dazzles our shiny white teeth, keeps our gums healthy, our teeth strong and our breath as fresh as a Peruvian meadow’s mist. Well, that same toothbrush is harboring more than 10 billion bacteria and 70% of the time it’s when your toothbrush is exposed to a new environment.

Luckily, your mouth is full of bacteria, therefore your toothbrush won’t make you sick but there are ways to keep it clean so you stay healthy – and not so grossed out.

Using Violife’s germ fighting products, you will never have to worry about all the different germs living on your toothbrush. I have been using the Zapi Luxe (which I call the No-Funk toothbrush) product for a few weeks now and I love it. It super easy to use and most importantly super quick. All you do is stick your toothbrush in the device, click the button and a UV light zaps away the pesky bacteria. Next time you use your toothbrush, it’s fresh and funk-free!

I am buying one for my sister for Christmas since she always complains of how many toothbrushes her and the kids go through. Plus, she panicked when she learned toothbrush holders can pick up bacteria that are spread by toilet flushing. A study by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) found that toothbrush holders are the third-most germy household items (behind dish sponges and kitchen sinks).

So I told her I would snag her a Zapi Luxe (No-Funk toothbrush) for Christmas this year – and to stop watching Dateline.
