The X5 Wand RRP $189.95
With Mother’s Day looking a bit different this year, finding gifts that help with isolation is a given.
During COVID-19 it is critical we stay sanitised and disinfected- however the harsh reality is the fact that we are pouring litres of chemicals on our skin each day- which is quickly absorbed by the skin.
UV LED light eliminates almost all germs and bacteria by destroying the physical properties of the DNA and RNA strands to achieve convenient and efficient disinfection.
The X5 wand is suitable for counters, mobile phones, keys, trolleys, keyboards and almost any surface can be cleared of virus and bacteria in 10 seconds.
What’s more, it is particularly safe for children’s products as it means there is no harm chemicals being sprayed.
