This $65 device is made in the U.S.A. and uses a UV-C light (short-wavelength ultraviolet light) to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA. The makers say it’s been laboratory-tested and proven. It’s as easy to use as swiping over the object or surface to be sterilized. Visit uvsanitizinglight.com.
Read | Then She Was Gone
Warning: Lisa Jewell’s book includes disturbing content but it’s a good psychological thriller. It’s based around a young girl’s disappearance and picks up 10 years later when her mother meets a young woman who is remarkably similar. One reviewer wrote: “You have villains, victims, heroes and sometimes a bizarre mix of all three in the same characters.” Find “Then She Was Gone” on amazon.com.
