Update 2021: These “personal air purifiers” are generally useless and this unit from 2011 isn’t much better. If do have a the need for an air purifier then I would recommend you look at something like an H13 Air purifier that uses the same filters as those seen in a hospital setting.

Germs are everywhere and the best catcher of germs in the body is your hand. You have to face it. However clean you are to your body, but if you will not protect yourself from the outside such as bacteria and all those nasty germs around you, you will likely catch flu and all other types of sickness.

You could just imagine touching the germs that cause flu, colds, salmonella, deadly e-coli, molds and a lot more without you knowing it. These are all around you such as in computer keyboards, handrails of stairs, buttons of elevators, telephones, toilet doors, doorknobs, and almost in everything you hold. These are unavoidable and only you can protect yourself. But how do you prevent this?

The best method of preventing germs is hand washing. But if you are always mobile and water is not available, how do you do it? There is a product that claims to sanitize your hands. It is called “Pocket Purifier”. This is a handheld germ-eliminating light that is so handy. It is like a wall that defends your hands from nasty germs with its germicidal light. It is very convenient especially when you are always on the go.


This lightweight Pocket Purifier can sanitize the objects in the same way that surgical instruments are sterilized by UV-C light. 99.9% of germs are eliminated with nanotechnology and ultraviolet light. It deactivates the DNA of viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens thus preventing its ability to multiply.

You can have this at home, in public, at work, and even for high-touch surfaces. This product is claimed to be the most environmentally responsible way of fighting germs with no chemicals.
