I always thought that my routine cleaning keeps my bathroom germs-free. I had no idea that technology is so advanced, that these days we have sterilizers available in the market to ensure that we can kill any bacteria and germs sticking in out toilet bowl. My bathroom cleaning supplies list was limited to toilet bowl cleaner, few cleaning sprays, and few disinfectants.
It's never too late. I came to know about some UV toilet sterilizer from a company named Forpow. As it was a new product, so I decided to give it a try. UV sterilizer kit consists of a sterilizer, charging cable and a wiping cloth. Installation was simple, it was done in less than 10 minutes.
The concept behind this sterilizer is UV light. As per product description, this sterilizer kills bacteria, germs, and mold by ultraviolet short waves.This sterilizer kit is attached to the toilet lid and then the lid is closed which kills bacteria present in the toilet bowl. Sterilizer automatically turns off after 6 minutes and this is the indicator that your toilet is sterilized now and ready to use.
As given in the installation guide, I wiped the toilet lid with alcohol cloth given, waited for 2 minutes, then removed 3M strips from the sterilizer and installed it on the lid. It has a button which can be turned on which turns UV light on. When you want to sterilize the pot then just turn off the lid and then wait for 6 minutes.
This sterilizer has a rechargeable battery inserted, it can be recharged with the given cable. There is a rotator kind of device, if you want to remove the device after use, you can easily remove it from the rotator strip by rotating.
I used it 2-3 times for sanitizing the toilet bowl for my bathroom. As germs and bacterias are not visible to naked eyes, it is hard to say how many germs and bacteria this device killed. I liked the concept of UV lights behind this product and think there is no harm using this product in sanitizing toilet bowls in addition to regular toilet cleaners and disinfectants. This gives me some mental peace that I have done something additional and best available in the market to ensure cleanliness and better health for my family.
Long story short, I'm glad that I tried this new product. Only suggestion is to make this sterilizer completely portable so it can be used in multiple bathrooms of the house. This has 3M adhesives on the rotator which makes it specific to be used on one toilet seat/bowl. If there is an option to buy additional 3M adhesive rotator strips then it can be used for additional bathrooms.
Forpow UV Toilet Sterilizer is available on Amazon and costs $59.99.
