Ben and I are a few days away from heading out of town for a big conference, so I should be spending my time preparing for our trip. Instead, I’m nursing a household of sick patients again. Ben and Aubrey both have a stomach virus, and Ellie has a viral upper respiratory infection. Oh, the joys of exposure to the public school system.
It seems like everyone I talk to right now is either battling something or just getting over something. Our 2 local hospitals are on flu protocol limiting visitors, and doctors’ offices are full.
And over here you have my kid, the threenager who decided to lick the buggy at the grocery store. Yes, she actually licked it and thought it was funny. The scene played out in slow motion in front of me, and my head filled with visions of slathering her head to toe with hand sanitizer. A few days later, the poor thing is sick as a dog and it’s definitely not funny anymore.
I am seriously on the verge of becoming a germaphobe, at least during our conference trip. Knowing I’ll be sitting in all day lectures with thousands of other people for 3 days on end has me a little freaked out.
Recently I was introduced to 2 CuVerro antimicrobial copper products that will definitely be in my travel bag this weekend to help me limit my germ exposure. I really can’t afford to be sick right now, nor do I want to share germs with the other conference attendees.
What is CuVerro?
CuVerro copper products feature a solid surface made of a unique class of copper that kills 99.9% of harmful bacteria. It is the only class of solid surface materials registered with the EPA to actively kill bacteria. Because CuVerro copper is both antimicrobial and antibacterial, it doesn’t just inhibit bacterial growth. It kills bacteria, too!
Did you know your cell phone may house more germs than a public toilet? Disgusting, isn’t it? iPhone users, meet the answer to your germ killing dreams.
This copper and black iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s case is not only beautiful and sleek. It’s germ fighting, too! With a $30 price point, you don’t have to break the bank to cut down on germ exposure from your phone, either!
- Sleek soft-touch plastic edge
- snap-on case
- Color: Matte Black, Rose
I will be taking lots of notes this weekend and participating in activities that will more than likely require writing something. I’m going to just say no to the assortment of bacteria-laden pens that are usually provided for our use because I’ll have my own bacteria crime fighter in my purse!
The Cross Century Copper Ball Point Pen features an antimicrobial copper finish, engraved logo, and polished chrome ends. It’s not just functional. It’s beautiful! And those antimicrobial features of the copper? This EPA-registered and lab tested pen kills more than 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours, and continues to kill 99.9% of bacteria 24 hours a day.The CuVerro antimicrobial copper surface is wear-resistant and durable, so the bacteria-killing properties will remain effective for the life of the pen.
You can learn more about CuVerro copper products, find out more about how they kill bacteria (including Staph, MRSA, and E Coli), and find scientic studies backing the products on cuverro.com.
I’ll be over here nursing my family back to health and trying to protect us from even more germs on my weekend journey! What item do you use most that you would like to have in an antimicrobial copper finish?
