Steripod Now Available In Single-Pack Travel Size
Bonfit America, Inc., maker of products for living well, now offers its market-leading Steripod clip-on toothbrush protector, recommended by top dentists, in a new singles-pack. Currently available in the travel and trial-size section of Target stores nationwide and online at Amazon and GetSteripod.com, Steripod toothbrush protectors safeguard any manual or electric toothbrush.
This month and throughout May, Steripod will be selecting a weekly winner to receive a summer travel survival kit prize complete with a year’s supply of Steripod Toothbrush Protectors, a $50 Sephora gift card and fun prizes for anyone who follows and tags @GetSteripod on Instagram using the hashtag #MyPodLife to share where they’d most like to take their Steripod.
“I absolutely love Steripod toothbrush protectors, and now with the new singles-pack, it’s easier than ever to make sure I always have one in my gym bag or when I travel,” said Health Magazine Contributing Editor and celebrity yoga instructor Kristin McGee. “Most people don’t realize your toothbrush can contain more germs than your toilet, so it’s important to keep your bristles safe and protected. Steripod is a simple and effective solution.”
Researchers from the University of Alabama recently found that toothbrushes stored in the bathroom are contaminated with a wide range of bacteria including fecal matter lingering in the bristles. In any shared bathroom, it’s likely it won’t just be your own.
Steripod uses thymol, found in many mouthwashes and oral antiseptics, to release active vapors creating a safe environment to store your toothbrush between uses, keeping it fresh and clean for up to three months. Steripod is specially designed so air circulates freely, allowing your toothbrush to dry naturally. Contaminants require a moist atmosphere to multiply most effectively, so the drier your brush, the lower the risk of bad bugs on your bristles.
According to Danielle Gilbert-Fowler, D.M.D. of Palm Tree Pediatric Dentistry: “You wouldn’t clean your body with a dirty washcloth. Why clean your teeth with a dirty toothbrush? It’s important to keep toothbrushes in a clean environment to avoid airborne contaminants – especially when traveling through crowded airports or staying in hotels. Use of a Steripod clip-on toothbrush protector will help keep your toothbrush clean and protect against outside contaminants and cross contamination from other toothbrushes.”
Thousands of college influencers from more than 270 campuses nationwide will be taking Steripod on summer break this year in partnership with Her Campus.
“Every young woman needs protection, and Steripod is the preferred choice among our Her Campus ambassadors for keeping toothbrushes safe, clean and fresh – from the sorority house to crowded dorm bathrooms, and on-the-go wherever their summer adventures take them,” said Windsor Hanger Western, Her Campus Co-Founder and President.
The new Steripod singles-pack is currently available at Target stores nationwide and online at Amazon and GetSteripod.com for a suggested retail price of $3.99. Steripod is also available in a “lovers pack,” which includes two Steripods for a suggested retail price of $5.99; and in a “family pack” of eight Steripods – ideal for college dorms, roommates or families – for $19.99, which comes with free shipping when purchased online at the newly redesigned GetSteripod.com website.
