In all honesty I am not much a germophobe. But since I had A. I worry that he might get sick while riding in the grocery cart or playing around the playground. I always carry a hand sanitizer in my purse for after the contact. I have never believed that a baby wipe will totally remove germs so I rarely use them. Here is where Purely Products comes in!
Our passion at Purely Products runs a twin track. We are focused on meeting the unstoppable groundswell for responsible products for responsible living as we fulfill our heart’s mission to help children in need.
Pure and simple, small actions with the right heart can make big changes.”

The Healthy CFL light bulb has a built-in ionizer that cleans the air by generating negative ions that attract positively charged airborne allergens and removes them from the air. It cleans a room up to 12′ x 12′.
- Built-in ionizer releases negative ions
- Removes allergens: pollen, dust, mold spores, pet dander, smoke
- Cleaner environment for your entire family, especially allergy and asthma sufferers
- Negative ions have been shown to increase serotonin levels, delivering more oxygen flow to the brain
- Helps counter the energy-draining effects of positive ions emitted by electronics, household materials, etc.
But it is not only good for your health, it is also great for your wallet!
It uses 80% less energy of standard incandescent light bulbs and has a 10,000 hour life span!
Now imagine if you change all your bulbs in your house to Purely UV light bulbs!
I used my light bulb in our bathroom and after living the light on for about two hours on my way back in I did feel the air a bit cleaner, as in it did not smell like dirty diapers (those in my trashcan)!
This one is so cool because you can take it with you! It really reminds me to my very first camera and every time I see my Pocket Purifier I want to snap a picture with it!!
But back to the review…The Pocket Purifier is a handheld germ-eliminating light which uses UV-C light to help eliminate germs.
UV-C light is germicidal – i.e., it deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease. Specifically, UV-C light causes damage to the nucleic acid of microorganisms by forming covalent bonds between certain adjacent bases in the DNA. The formation of such bonds prevent the DNA from being unzipped for replication, and the organism is unable to reproduce. In fact, when the organism tries to replicate, it dies.
- Incorporates ultraviolet light and nanotechnology to eliminate 99.9% of germs that cause colds, and flu, plus e-coli, salmonella, mold, fungus and MRSA staph (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
- Built in 4-watt germicidal ultraviolet light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens destroying their ability to multiply
- Suitable for purifying masks, kitchen counters, sinks and utensils, bathroom surfaces, computer keyboards, remote controls, cell phones, nail clippers, shoes, clothing, bags, scissors, baby toys, pacifiers, diaper pails, cribs, strollers – most everyday items. UV light will not harm function of surfaces or items disinfected.
- Powered by 4 (AA) batteries for easy carrying and safe usage (Batteries not included)
- Convenient, lightweight, quick and easy to use
- Suitable for disinfecting most everyday items with exposure of 10-15 seconds.
- Available in convenient single, double and family-friendly four packs
- UV-C bulb effective for 9,000 hours
It is light weight and the perfect size to carry around with you (it is a little over 6″ x 2″) and so simple to use. Point and slowly move the light, making sure to expose the area to the light for about 15 seconds. Super easy way to keep our kids and family germs-free.
I truly recommend the Purely Pocket Purifier! Great for families with school aged kids…and just in time for the flu season, a GIVEAWAY!!
