Verilux UV-C Wand – Like An Ultraviolet Light Saber

We know our pal Ultraviolet Light and the ninja germ killing abilities it possesses – and now a company called VeriLux has created the Cleanwave UV sanitizing wand.  It’s like a UV light saber to smack germs in the mouth.  Verilux says, about the CleanWave:

Originally developed for sanitizing hospitals and clean rooms, UV-C light technology can now be safely and easily used in your home! UV-C light has the ability to eliminate 99.9% of household germs, bacteria and viruses in seconds, without harmful chemicals. The Verilux Cleanwave Sanitizing Light Wand is a convenient and easy way to safely kill the harmful germs that lurk throughout your home. With a new improved design that is slim, and lightweight, this wand is very easy to use and perfect for eliminating potentially dangerous allergens, bacteria, and germs from a baby rooms, kitchen counters, flatware, bedding, sofas, bathroom surfaces, and just about anywhere within the home. The Verilux Cleanwave sanitizing light wand is also safe, featuring a safety shut-off that turns the UV-C bulb off when the wand it tipped upside down to prevent harmful exposure to your eyes and skin. This is a feature that has been overlooked by many manufacturers of UV-C light wands and we are very pleased that Verilux has included it on their wand!

You hold this thing over surfaces for between 10-20 seconds, and you’ve crippled the genes of the germs, if not killed them all together.  99.9% of those little punks will be destroyed, so breathe easy.  I imagine I’d be making that stupid VWOOOWV noise every time I used this thing, too.

The Verilux Cleanwave sanitizer is running around a hundred bucks.  Check it out.

MINUS: The Garbage Can That Doesn’t Smell Like Rotting Death

I usually notice that I forgot to throw out the bag of garbage in the kitchen around day two of the empty raw chicken package being in there, especially if it’s humid.  My beagle Gracie certainly notices if anyone puts anything in there, and she does her “I’m smelling the can but not *really* smelling the can enough so you don’t see me smelling the can” face.  How freaking adorable and disgusting.  But designer Cem Tutuncuoglu has invented a can that not only freezes your garbage, but also kicks the snot out of it with our good friend and the ninja of wavelengths, ultraviolet light.  The designer claims that the can not only kills and de-stinks your garbage, but also gives off “a pleasing light” in your kitchen.

Check out Cem‘s website, but be forewarned – you’ll be bombed with a whole bunch of publicity this guy has gotten for some reason.  It’s actually a task to find his work through all of that self-love.
