Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A wand that purifies with light The UV wand is almost magic! I won't know the final effect until my home is rid of fungal spores, which it does not claim to kill but I'm experimenting. The wand is one more tool in our effort. I'm also using an all-over UV air purifier which I move from room to room. The only improvement I'd make on the wand, and this was also discussed by an earlier reviewer, is that it barely works on vertical surfaces such as the back of a couch or chair, curtains, etc. I found that if you tilt it slightly, it will work but it's very slow and you have to control your arm and grip while waiting to cover the surface in question, which is tiring. Still, I recommend the wand as a concentrated way to reach nooks and crannies, and focus on flat surfaces. August 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by USEFUL WAND TIPS THANK YOU TO GAIAM FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE SOME WAND INSIGHTS WITH OTHERS. SOME KEY POINTS ARE AS FOLLOWS: 1) AT CERTAIN ANGLES/POSITIONS, THE LIGHT TENDS TO FLICKER AND YOU HAVE TO BE V--E--R--Y STILL TO KEEP THE LIGHT ON FOR THE DURATION. 2) THE BATTERY TAKES 4-5HRS TO F-U-L-L-Y RECHARGE SO 2 WANDS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR UNINTERRUPTED SANITIZATION. 3) A PADDED CASE WOULD BE A USEFUL ADDITION FOR TRAVEL PROTECTION AS WELL AS A CHARGER FOR THE CAR. 4) MOVEMENT OVER THE SURFACE TO BE SANITIZED SHOULD BE S---L---O---W AND STEADY. 5) GREAT DEVICE FOR THE REDUCTION/ELIMINATION OF INDOOR AND OUTDOOR CHEMICAL USAGE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good! Product was delivered very quickly, and after only one night's use on our bedding, I woke feeling noticeably better, less congested, and refreshed. I anticipate using it on workout clothes, intimates, and all surfaces to kill bacteria. March 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT purchase i'm really excited about this purchase! with all the publicity in the news about dust mites i'm using it on all my beds, pillows, etc. also i have pets so it will be interesting to see it's effectiveness when flea season comes around. thanks gaiam!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Well Works really well... Was able to get rid of an odor in our apartment that was here prior to us moving in. Simple, easy and fast! July 26, 2011

Answer: 
Great question! The CleanWave UV-C Sanitizing Wand kills microbes that we do not see. The manufacturer, Verilux, conducted a study that confirmed the elimination of dust mite eggs with use of this product. This being said, it may kill lice eggs but the manufacturer cannot make that claim as they didn’t conduct an independent laboratory test specifically on lice eggs. Feel free to view the test results here! (http://www.verilux.com/pdfs/test_data_efficacy.pdf)

Answer: 
Yes indeed, the iPhone is the PERFECT example of an item that can collect more germs than your toilet seat! We can wipe off electronics but it is so hard to kill the bacteria and viruses that can live for days. The CleanWave UV-C sanitizing wand is perfect for the iPhone!

If you place it over a bowl of water, (not in it!)  will it purify the water?

Answer: 
The manual doesn't mention anything about water. It says Kills up to 99.9% of germs, viruses and other micro-organisms on solid, non-porous surfaces. Sanitizing times and effectiveness for porous surfaces may vary.

UV light can be used to sanitize water however the wand has not been tested for that use so they do not have kill times listed for non-porous or liquid objects.

We are battling MRSA, and I am uncomfortable with developing a dependance on chemical cleaners.
I am wondering how to properly clean surfaces, bedding, etc. For instance, I know you have to hold the wand 1/2 " from the surface for approximately 30 seconds to kill most things, but does that mean holding it stationary and moving in a grid pattern over the item? Or, do you wave the wand for 30 seconds over an area then move along to a nearby area and wave the wand for 30 seconds.

Also, how frequently would the wand need to be used?

Answer: 
It's 30 seconds for each area the light covers in a non sweeping motion, so you would want to hold the wand over each area of the object for 30 seconds. You want to use the light as often as you would use bottled cleaners, or you would normally sanitize and clean surfaces.

Answer: 
The UV-C Sanitizing Wand kills germs, mold, dust mite and flea eggs that are the common cause of colds, flu, infections, asthma and allergic reactions. The vacuum would simply help to remove the dead particles.
