“If anything, the peace of mind I am getting from the CleanWave is extremely calming. For those of us who try to fight germs on a daily basis it’s a great tool to have and to help combat the nasty germs that make all of us so sick all of the time.” -Jeanine of Six Time Mommy.

Moms, bless their hearts, tend to have a lot of worries.  They love their families and want to protect them from everything they possibly can.  For many moms, germs are a significant daily worry.  Germs in the house, germs in the grocery store, public bathrooms, doctor’s office, and so many other places they visit on a regular basis, not to mention when they travel.  Read on to learn more about how these four moms use the CleanWave Portable Sanitizing Wand daily to help put their minds at ease as well as why it’s a great, unique gift for Mom this Mother’s Day.  Also, at the end of the article, check out details on how to win one!

“If anything, the peace of mind I am getting from the CleanWave is extremely calming. For those of us who try to fight germs on a daily basis it’s a great tool to have and to help combat the nasty germs that make all of us so sick all of the time,” says Jeanine of Six Time Mommy.  “I love taking it with me when we go out. It’s lightweight and fits right in my purse. When the kids have to use the bathroom, my least favorite part is washing my hands THEN opening the bathroom door. So, having the CleanWave helps and I feel a lot more comfortable opening that door.”

“It reduced the amount of sanitizing chemicals I use in cleaning the house as well as the time I need to finish the work. This has changed cleaning techniques for me. The price is just right given the amount of work it can do for you.” -Vivianne of Natural Mama

Bringing your CleanWave Wand along can also simplify what you pack in your purse or bag.  “I have a toddler and a 6 year old. This CleanWave Sanitizing wand helps me a lot without the worry of packing so many sanitizing wipes and gels,” says Vivianne of Natural Mama.

Vivianne also found the CleanWave to be a great help at home as part of her cleaning routine. “It reduces the amount of sanitizing chemicals I use in cleaning the house as well as the time I need to finish the work,” says Vivianne. This has changed cleaning techniques for me. The price is just right given the amount of work it can do for you.”

“One thing that bothers me is the thought of my electronics being full of germs…You can probably understand how excited I was to hear about the Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wand, right up my alley!” -Ruthie from the Chronicles of Ruthie Hart

Moreover, for some moms, avoiding chemicals is even more important than eliminating germs. “I’m going to be completely honest. I’m the type of mom that isn’t really too worried about germs,” says Silvana of My Silly Little Gang. “Especially being a mom to 3 boys, I have learned that germs and boys do kinda go hand in hand. I am however not a fan of harsh chemicals. So, when I need to get something germ-free, the Verilux Portable Sanitizing Wand is a great alternative.”

Even more, some surfaces, such as cell phones, key boards and touch screens, harbor germs and are difficult to clean.  “One thing that bothers me is the thought of my electronics being full of germs,” says Ruthie of The Chronicles of Ruthie Hart. “I am the gal who takes wipes to my laptop and phone and will spray my steering wheel with Thieves spray any chance I get. You can probably understand how excited I was to hear about the Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wand, right up my alley!”

ORBit with toys A Nation of Moms

“My daughter just turned 5, but still can have her share of issues falling asleep on her own…[The ORBit] has been a great tool in helping her fall asleep. There is something soothing and calming about this light.” -Marysa of A Nation of Moms

Did you know that light can enhance relaxation?  Moms, dads, and children alike can greatly benefit from certain types of light to help unwind from the day as well as make bedtime transitions more peaceful. Read on to see how these mothers’ stories speak volumes about how much relaxing light can reduce stress at bedtime and enhance sleep.  Also, check out details below on how to enter to win your own ORBit Relaxation Lamp!

“Ava who usually has a really hard time falling asleep at night… was fast asleep within 10 minutes. It was a pure bliss to not have to deal with getting them to be quiet so the other kids could sleep!” -Janine of Six Time Mommy

“Bedtime at our house can often times be a huge, stressful mess,” shared Janine of Six Time Mommy. “One kid wants the light on in the hallway, the others complain it’s too bright…WHEN WILL IT END? In comes the ORBit Relaxation Lamp! With its calm, soothing lights, this lamp has quickly taken the place of a bathroom light left on and opened up a whole new, smoother bedtime.”

Janine also added, “Ava who usually has a really hard time falling asleep at night and tends to keep Kyla awake (they share a room and bunk beds) was fast asleep within 10 minutes. It was a pure bliss to not have to deal with getting them to be quiet so the other kids could sleep, but also so they could get some rest!”

ORBit for late night visits A Nation of Moms

“[The ORBit] is also great in the morning (or the middle of the night) when I go in my daughter’s room, so that I don’t have to turn on the main light. We have blackout curtains in our bedrooms, so the white light is gentle enough to wake up to without being blinding.” -Marysa of Nation of Moms

Marysa from A Nation of Moms also found the ORBit to be a seamless and helpful addition to bedtime at her house. “My daughter just turned 5, but still can have her share of issues falling asleep on her own…This light has been a great tool in helping her fall asleep. Like clockwork, she turns the light on at bedtime. There is something soothing and calming about this light and she is able to lay in her bed and relax with the light on. I think sometimes it is hard to wind down when you have a lot of distracting thoughts, and the lamp serves as its own distraction. I think my daughter finds it mesmerizing!

An additional benefit of the ORBit is its white light setting. “Surprisingly, this is also great in the morning (or the middle of the night) when I go in my daughter’s room so that I don’t have to turn on the main light,” added Marysa. “We have blackout curtains in our bedrooms. The white light is gentle enough to wake up to without being blinding.”

When many people think about using light to enhance mood, they think of lights that help increase energy. However, as these moms know, it is also really helpful for relaxation. The ORBit transitions through a calming array of hues of the three primary colors or, with its crisp, Natural Spectrum® white illumination, it is also a convenient, mini-lantern in places where you need some extra light.

Stephanie of Mom Among Chaos immediately appreciated the ORBit’s dual use. “My 12 year old daughter has problems falling asleep at night. The ORBit light is soft and relaxing.  The next morning my daughter was using the natural light setting to apply her makeup.”

A mom’s best ally against germs: Verilux CleanWave wand sanitizes in seconds without chemicals

vh03-sink-glow

“I think my favorite thing about the sanitizing wand is that it sanitizes without any chemicals, irritants, or fumes. I regularly use sanitizing wipes and I always wonder just what chemicals I’m exposing myself and my family to, but with the wand, I don’t have to worry anymore!” -Shannon F.

Germs are a frequent concern for many of us, particularly this time of year.  It can be stressful to find ourselves in situations where it seems impossible not to come in contact with germs, such as when we are traveling or at the doctor’s office.  Also, even when we can disinfect the things we come in contact with, have you ever thought about the potentially harmful chemicals in cleaning products?  Combining a worse than usual flu season with children, the elderly, or those struggling with other illnesses makes keeping areas clear of germs, but also harmful chemicals, even more important.  However, there is an elegant solution to this problem– UV-C light!  Read on to learn more about how the Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wand, which uses UV-C to kill up to 99.9% of germs and even allergens on hard surfaces, gives many peace of mind while traveling or at home.

VH03-airplaneChristine from Mama Papa Barn wasn’t concerned about germs until she became a mother and loves the sense of security having a sanitizing wand provides while she’s traveling. “I never really thought about all the germs and bacteria that could linger in places when I was fit and child-less, but now that I have two children, their health and mine are a top priority. What can you do about all those buttons/knobs and assorted shared-space things that you touch every day, or at least on your current journey? Carry the Verilux CleanWave Portable Sanitizing Wand.

The CleanWave Sanitizing Portable Wand utilizes advanced UV-C light technology to significantly reduce viruses, odor causing bacteria and certain molds and other allergens, on surfaces at home or while traveling. Perfect for smaller items like cell phones, remote controls, keyboards, faucets, toys, music players, ATMs and more, the CleanWave fits easily into your purse, diaper bag, briefcase or luggage. Sanitize bathroom and hotel surfaces, plane and train headrests, steering wheels, toys and other surfaces in the doctor’s office waiting room, shopping cart handles and more. The Verilux CleanWave wand sanitizes quickly and easily without chemical residue, harsh liquids or odors. Whether at home, work, dorm, hotel, public restroom, car, bus, train or vacation, this little powerhouse is ideal for everything you touch except people, pets or food.

The Verilux CleanWave Portable Sanitizing Wand

Jenny from Jenny at Dapperhouse and her family know all too well how important sanitizing surfaces can be. “My husband has a weak immune system because of his recent kidney transplant surgery. He has to function in normal society by taking the train into the city for work, traveling on airlines to business trips and going to the gym each day in an area that has high cases of flu and other contagious diseases.”  By using the CleanWave Sanitizing Wand on the go, Jenny’s husband has additional protection against germs in his environment.

Moreover, the benefits of using the sanitizing wand over other disinfectants mean a lot to moms concerned about toxins in their environment.  Shannon F. from I’m No Domestic Goddess says, “I think my favorite thing about the sanitizing wand is that it sanitizes without any chemicals, irritants, or fumes. I regularly use sanitizing wipes and I always wonder just what chemicals I’m exposing myself and my family to, but with the wand, I don’t have to worry anymore!  I love that the CleanWave Portable Sanitizing Wand sanitizes quickly and easily and kills up to 99.9% of germs, viruses and other micro-organisms.”

The germs and allergens we come into contact with can be an even greater concern when we leave home.  “Back in 2008 I learned about these ultra-violet wands that you can carry with you when you travel that kill the germs, ” says Rebecca C. from Purify Your Body. “I finally got one!  And, it is the perfect time to get one because it is right in the midst of cold and flu season!”

The Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wand has been tested by a United States independent, third party laboratory and is proven to eliminate up to 99% of H1N1, Influenza A and MRSA to name only a few.  For more information on how this exciting technology works and how to buy, visit Verilux.com.
