HyGenie Portable Sanitizer - Review & Giveaway

I do not have any little babies, but I know the importance of keeping things free of germs. Sanitization is especially important for little ones. I've seen many times where a child has a bottle or pacifier in their mouth and it drops to the floor. The thought alone of all the ucky stuff that can be picked up from the floor makes me cringe a little.

The HyGenie Portable Sanitizer from HyGenie USA is a preventative solution for parents who want their baby's pacifiers, bottles, and nipples to be free from germs. Eliminating up to 99% of harmful germs such as E. Coli, Shigella, and Fungus, the HyGenie can sanitize most common types of bottles, nipples and pacifiers, and any other surface that can fit within the sanitization unit.

This photo shows the underside of the lid, where the UV/Ozone lamp is located.

Making the HyGenie so effective is the patented UV/Ozone lamp that uses a duel-mechanism technology to disinfect and sanitize. UV-C rays from the sun act as a natural sterilization system that inhibits the growth and reproduction of biological pollutants while Ozone is a gaseous disinfectant that, essentially, kills germs, fungi, and bacteria by rupturing them at the molecular level. Combined, the one-two-punch of UV and Ozone, will properly sanitize an item with one disinfecting what the other does not.

To use, place the desired item into the HyGenie, light the fluorescent lamp, and the germs will be gone approximately seven minutes later. The HyGenie comes with the option to choose between Wide or Standard sizes by switching out the bottom cover and adaptor.

I received a HyGenie Portable Sanitizer for review. Although I do not have babies, I did thoroughly check it out to get a feel of what this product was about. I also let my friend have a go with it since she has a baby, so she could give her opinion on what she thinks. We both came up with the same consenus of the HyGenie.

The HyGenie would be great to take with you on the go to keep what enters your baby's mouth safe. In this day and age, it is especially important to be particular with sanitation. I like that it accommodates for all sizes of bottles, nipples, and pacifiers. The unit is fairly easy to use. With just the turn of a dial and seven minutes of patience, the products are safe to use again.

There are quite a number of attachments that come with the HyGenie to accommodate for the different sizes of bottles and such. The instructions indicate which attachment is for pacifiers, which is for nipples, and which is for bottles. It would be nice to not have to switch back and forth the attachments, and to just have one full piece that would fit for whatever it is that you are sanitizing.

Win It!
