As much as I was careful to sterilize my kids’ bottles and pacifiers, there are so many other things that are covered with germs that we rarely remember to clean. That’s where Ellie could really save the day, and maybe even keep your family healthier.

Ellie is the first portable sanitizer that eradicates 99.9% of nasty germs like Salmonella, Staph, E. Coli, Listeria…yuck. Using something called Truviolet technology (digital UV light), Ellie sterilizes anything you can fit into it within a mere 60 seconds. Ellie is also 100% mercury-free and completely non-toxic, which makes it a safe solution.

And it’s not just baby stuff, though that’s where it’s the most helpful. We’ve covered this toothbrush sanitizer before, but Ellie’s size makes it much more versatile to fit all sorts of items. This would be great to bring with you on family trips (hotel remotes, anyone?) or just keep in your purse or diaper bag at all times for on-the-go sterilization. No more 5-second rule when the pacifiers drop on the ground. Ha.

It charges via micro-USB, and when fully juiced, is supposed to last for a week when used up to 20 times a day. Judging by how quickly it reached its goal on Indiegogo, it’s a good bet that many parents are realizing there are better solutions for cleaning baby’s stuff than wiping on a shirt or putting in their mouths. Not that I every did that. Ahem. 

Ellie is available for pre-order from Indiegogo. There are various packages available, pricing starts at $89 for delivery April 2017.
