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.
