Must-have hygiene gadgets and accessories for your home

Spending more time at home has definitely been easier on our wallets, but it hasn't been easy on us or our homes. We're in them more, using things more, touching things more, and generally just getting everything dirtier with our grubby little fingers. If you've been looking around your house—and at yourself—lately and thinking "Ew," then you need to get some hygiene gadgets to keep up on it.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve gotten pretty lazy during this whole quarantine thing. Like, really lazy. Life revolves around working and playing Animal Crossing, with a few breaks here and there to shower, sleep, and eat something. And all that laziness means that my house is looking a bit ragged. And I kind of am too. We aren’t even going to discuss the whole needing-a-haircut thing since we’re all in the same boat. But the cat hair is starting to pile up, and when I’m left with a choice between vacuuming or collecting pears to pay off my 548,000 bells for my left room, I’m gonna choose to pay down that loan every time. Right now, I’m looking for all the ways I can cut corners and still be a sloth. So these hygiene gadgets are currently saving me.

I’ve been doing all the time-saving I can in the kitchen with some of these items. My Instant Pot has taken a beating lately, and it’s still hanging in there. And my work area is in pretty good shape, and I’m being a bit more productive than usual since I’m not going out as much. Scratch that. Not going out at all. But I need to up my game when it comes to getting everything cleaned. I had planned on getting a lot of deep cleaning and organizing done, but then Animal Crossing happened.

Here are my suggestions to do the bare minimum and still feel like you’re doing something to keep yourself and your home hygienic.

Klistem Portable Multifunctional Sterilizer

Take care of your hygiene no matter where you are with the Klistem Portable Multifunctional Sterilizer. This travel-friendly gadget evenly distributes UV-C rays to dry and remove bacteria on your belongings. In fact, it eliminates 99.99% of bacteria and odors in just 90 seconds. Klistem comes with a multifunctional tray, allowing you to sanitize household items like your toothbrush, earphones, and more. It is also handy for parents who want to protect their baby from harmful bacteria. Thanks to its unique design, Klistem’s light source reaches all areas inside of your cup or bottle to maximize sanitation. The sterilizer also features a system that effectively dries out any remaining moisture. 

Fjord Long-Wear Underwear

Underwear can be kind of gross. But it doesn’t have to be. When you have Fjord Long-Wear Underwear, you can wear a pair for weeks without smell. Plus, they are ultra-absorbant, breathable, and comfortable. And what could be better than underwear that cleans itself? Because that’s exactly what the HercFiber does. Other underwear materials like cotton and polyester breed bacteria, which causes stinky smells. Instead, your Fjord men’s underwear and women’s underwear will keep you dry, fresh, and feeling luxurious. Sure, you can wash them every day if you really want to. But you won’t feel the need to when you see how great they work.

Bestek M-Care UV Light Electric Toothbrush

Your toothbrush sits in your bathroom day in and day out. But do you ever think about the germs gathering on it? The makers of the Bestek M-Care UV Light Electric Toothbrush have. UV light is one of the best ways to kill germs, and the UV light on your M-Care will kill 99% of the germs having a party on your brush—and in your mouth. You’ll have three brush modes for standard, soft, and whitening, and three types of brush heads are included. Furthermore, the Smart Timer tells you to move your brush to a different part of your mouth every 30 seconds.

GUILIN Lampscape Air Purifier

Clean air is super important in your home, and standard air purifiers tend to have less-than-desirable looks. The GUILIN Lampscape Air Purifier changes that. This hygiene gadget not only effectively makes the air in your home safer. But it also looks beautiful and functions as a piece of art. GUILIN uses photocatalysis technology to eliminate viruses, bacteria, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, formaldehyde, and molds and odors from your home. And the more mountains you have, the cleaner your air will be. All the mountains can be moved and placed freely by you so you become the sculptor and creator of GUILIN—and no two lamps will ever be the same. 

Silveray-III Eco-Friendly Sanitizer

What could be an easier way to clean than to just spray things down? It’s important to you that you have a clean, fresh-smelling home. But you don’t want all the chemicals. That’s where Silveray-III Eco-Friendly Sanitizer comes in. In fact, this hygiene gadget is an eco-friendly and human-friendly product. Made of silver foam and bar with extraordinary sterilizing effects, it lets you make clean water. Simply add filtered or mineral water and begin using it to kill germs and odor-causing bacteria. Just spray it on various surfaces and everywhere you want for a clean, fresh-smelling home with surfaces that are safe for your kids and pets and free of harmful bacteria and chemicals.

ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO 950 Robot Vacuum Mop

Never worry about cleaning your floors again with the ECOVACS DEEBOT OZMO 950 Robot Vacuum Mop. Because it’s both a vacuum and a mop, this robot cleaner keeps all different floor types spotless. When vacuuming, the OZMO 950 provides three different suction levels: Normal, Max, and Max Plus. A convenient feature of this robot mop is that you can schedule when it cleans. Additionally, this hygiene gadget has built-in Amazon Alexa, so you can simply speak to it when you want it to start or stop cleaning. Yep, you officially live in the future.

I’m not sure about you, but a robot vacuum is looking really good right about now. And thanks to that stimulus check, I have some money burning a hole in my pocket.
