PHOENIX – Let’s face it: Sex toys can be a lot of fun, but they can also represent frustration. They’re not the easiest things to clean, what with all the bumps, ripples, waves and other textures on some vibes. Most toys are sensitive to chemical cleansers, too. Then there are the related issues of charging and storage: Heaven forbid the device and its plug become separated, because — like pairs of socks in the dryer — the two will never reunite.
Enter UVee, a first-of-its kind toy storage, charging and sanitation system. Developed with the input of a microbiologist, the patent-pending UVee system employs a UV-C germicidal light and unique interior to kill a reported 99.9 percent of surface bacteria typically found on adult toys.
Lab tests found UVee two to five times more effective at killing certain bacteria than commercially available toy cleaners, thanks to the product’s custom-designed methodology. In addition to its UV-C germicidal light, UVee also features waffled interior reflectors to reduce bacteria in crevices, cracks and folds.
Bonus: The company behind UVee, Clean Light Laboratories, is female-owned and -operated.
“There’s nothing like UVee on the market, and we love carrying innovative products designed to care for and sanitize products that play such an important role in people’s sex lives,” said Joe Casella, CEOwner of Entrenue, which distributes the product. “Cleanliness is a constant concern to consumers, and UVee makes it fast, easy and uncomplicated — an absolute must for a toy-cleaning system.
“Users can charge and sanitize their favorite items simultaneously, all while keeping toys safely locked away from curious minds, which makes UVee an even more exciting new addition to Entrenue’s catalog,” he added.
UVee is available in two versions: the larger Home Play can hold and charge up to three products, including a full-size wand, at one time and offers a 10-minute sanitizing cycle. The Home Play also has a vacuum-sealed hole that allows for the charging of toys that do not charge through a USB port. The portable GO Play can hold and charge one product, features a rechargeable battery to allow for travel, and offers a five-minute sanitizing cycle.
UVee storage systems feature a sleek exterior and childproof combination locks, and they’re equipped with sensors that start the cleaning process as soon as a toy is securely in place with the lid shut. The Home Play model’s interior racks are adjustable to accommodate a variety of toy shapes.
Each UVee comes with a full one-year warranty and a five-year warranty on the bulbs.
