Anyone who has children who use pacifiers knows how dirty they can get. Unfortunately, no matter how hard we try, pacifiers get dropped on the floor and handled by many people. With all the germs around us, especially this time of year…it’s so important to keep pacifiers as clean as possible. That’s why I was happy to learn more about Pipila and their portable UV pacifier sterilizer.
Pipila has created a portable pacifier sterilizer using a patented UV/O (ozone) lamp that helps to kill up to 99.9% of germs on your child’s pacifier without changing the shape of the nipple or leaving a residual smells or funny tastes on it. It’s scary to think how many germs are on the pacifiers our children use, and I’m so glad to have come across a handy, portable product that allows me to keep them clean at home and on the go.
There are many benefits of the Pipila, some of which include:
- Eliminates up to 99.9% of harmful germs.
- Pacifier nipple shape is not changed by the sterilization process.
- Portable, compact type; convenient and easy to use. e.g. shopping, visiting or traveling.
- Allows parents to sterilize Pacifiers anywhere, anytime securely.
- Safe, hygienic and environmentally friendly.
- Accommodates all standard pacifiers.
- Sterilization is complete in 6 minutes!
- Operates with only 2 x AAA (1.5V) batteries.
- A great gift idea for a baby shower or party
We were sent a Pipila to review. I couldn’t believe how easy to use it was once we tried it out. To start you simply put 2 AAA batteries in. Then, rinse off the pacifier, open the lid and place the binky face down into the hole in the center of the device. Gently press down and the UV light will turn on that indicates it is ready to sanitize. Close the lid and wait 6 minutes until the light turns off and there you have it….a sterilized pacifier ready to use. It’s a similar sterilization process as that of hospitals.
After having used it a number of times, I can tell you that this is a product I would definitely recommend to any parent with a child who uses a pacifier. It’s definitely a mommy must-have, as it helps to put my mind at ease about keeping the pacifiers around our house clean. It’s so easy to use too…which is perfect for the busy family.
