Remember Sharper Image? They’re the company that made the word ionize synonymous with snake oil. So pardon my skepticism when I say I have a hard time believing that the Ionator spray bottles can replace household cleaners. Don’t get me wrong, most abrasives for the home aren’t good for you, but many of them definitely do the job when it comes to killing bacteria.
The Ionator spray bottle effectively turn water into a cleanser by ionizing it on the fly. They say they’ve taken the same technology that has been proven in hospital use and shrunken it down. But that doesn’t mean it’s on the cheap. The home version (HOM) starts at $169, while the profressional grade ones cost up to $329. For this price you’ll get about 3-5 years of use, where upon you’ll have to replace the entire system. Cheaper than a few bottles of Windex for the same period of time? Probably not, but at least you’ll take comfort in knowing that you’re not poisoning your family or customers.
