Odor-Killing Light Bulbs
The bulbs are coated with Titanium Dioxide, a natural mineral found in certain rocks and sand that's safe for humans. "It's found in such products as food coloring so if you've had birthday cake, you've ingested it," says David deMartino, CEO of O-ZoneLite, the manufacturer.
Bonded to a fluorescent screw-in bulb, a chemical reaction takes place when it is turned on that kill airborne pathogens including mold spores, viruses, fungus, staph infection and odor molecules (including pet and smoke).
While other air purification systems, such as Hepa filters and air ionizers, trap airborne pathogens, the company says this is the only method on the market that actually kills them.
The bulbs are also energy savers, using just 23 watts of energy to emit about 100 watts of light during their air-purifying 10,000 hour life.
To be effective, the bulbs need to be in an open fixture such as a floor or desk lamp. The company recommends one per 200 sq. ft.
He says part-time use is effective but the longer you leave the light on, the better it will work. For example, if you put one in your bedroom, turn it on as soon as you wake up and leave it on until you go to bed. "We recommend using it no less than 4 hrs. per day."
O-ZoneLite bulbs sell for $39.95 apiece plus S&H. The company has a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
