* Sanitizing has never been so easy and convenient
* Avoid and kill germs on the go
* Products for banishing germs, bacteria, allergens and more
Flu season lasts through the early spring, so whether you’re just trying to avoid getting sick or have a tendency to evade germs regardless of the season, you’re in luck. The comprehensive list below showcases a few key products whose main job is to prevent and/or minimize coming into contact with all types of illness-causing germs, bacteria, and allergens.
1. Cyber Clean Putty
This putty from Switzerland is seriously powerful stuff. It eliminates 99.99% of germs and absorbs dust, dirt and other elements in tight cavities. Just press it on to your keyboard, car cup holder or other hard-to-reach spot and let it go to work. Best of all, on top of leaving your gear clean, it will leave behind a refreshing lemon scent. It’ll pick up those potentially harmful microorganisms that hang in the air and leave your spaces bacteria-free.
2. simplehuman Touch-Free Liquid Soap Pump
Wash your hands without touching anything with this touch-free soap dispenser from simplehuman. It’s made with stainless steel that is sure to last for years to come and look nice in any room in your home.
It’s got variable dispensing — less soap comes out if you hold your hand close to the nozzle, while more will spill out if you hold your hand farther down. The flexible silicone valve shuts securely and seals to prevent messy dripping between washes, and it has a clog-free tubing pump so your soap will always be there when you need it.
3. Washable Keyboard
One of the germiest places at home or the office is your computer keyboard. If you are not wiping it down on a regular basis, germs will build up and ultimately make you sick. I-Rocks has solved this problem with their hand-washable keyboard. This plug-and-play device comes ready with a brush and special drainage holes for easy cleaning and drying.
4. Touchless Toilet Flush Kit
Never manually flush the toilet again. The touchless Toilet Flush Kit by Techo will convert your toilet into an automatic toilet flusher without having to replace the current toilet or toilet seat. Your toilet will automatically flush when you wave your hand over the detection range, eliminating any unnecessary contact with your toilet handle, and thus reducing the number of germs you come into contact with.
5. UV Toothbrush Sterilizer Holder
Another germy item we tend to overlook is the toothbrush. Being in the bathroom, it comes in contact with bacteria and germs all day long. This toothbrush sterilizer kills 99.9% of harmful germs and bacteria on your toothbrush within just a few seconds and can prevent them from reproducing in the future. This UV system is designed to turn off when people get close to it, protecting you and your family. It also has a wall-mount design that you can place anywhere, making it both a sanitary and convenient to your bathroom.
6. SafeRest Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress
Although not a product for sanitizing per se, mattress protectors keep your mattress clean and healthy through protecting against dust mites, allergens and bacteria. This one is hypoallergenic so you won’t get all stuffy after using it. It’s also great for battling bed bug infestations and will not change the look or feel of your mattress underneath your sheets. Rest comfortably knowing your mattress has your back while you sleep.
7. Air Purifier
Our next pick is a 3-in-1 Air Purifier by GermGuardian. Not only does it purify the air to capture 99.97% of dust and allergens, it also kills germs with its UV-C filter and captures unpleasant household odors with its charcoal filtration system.
8. NasalGuard Allergen Blocker Nasal Gel
Upgrade the air you’re breathing using this NasalGuard Nasal Blocker Gel that filters out pollen, allergens, pollutants and other harmful airborne particles.
Whether you’re traveling or just taking a run outside during flu season, applying a pin-sized drop of this stuff to your nostrils and upper lip can protect you from virus-sized particles floating in the air.
This product is safe to use for the whole family at any time of the day.
