• A UV sanitizer wand is a fantastic way to disinfect surfaces all around your home and office, but most options out there are price gouged right now because of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
  • Thankfully, we came across a great top-rated option that is in stock and ready to ship from Amazon for just $39.99.
  • It’s called the Hygea SteriWand UV Sanitizer Wand and it’s even waterproof so you don’t have to worry about using it around the bathroom and kitchen.

It should go without saying at this point that face masks and hand sanitizer are the two most important things out there when it comes to protecting yourself from the novel coronavirus. The CDC says so, the WHO says so, and experts all over the world agree. In fact, the CDC instructs people right on its coronavirus site to always wear face masks anytime they have to leave their homes for any reason. The organization really couldn’t be any more clear: “Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.”

Amazon’s best-selling face masks and the site’s best-selling alcohol-based hand sanitizer are both in stock right now, so you really have no excuse to be without either. And if you want to be even safer, you can get the strongest hand sanitizer we’ve ever seen — Eighty Aid hand sanitizer with 80% alcohol content. Of course, there are a few other tools you need in order to be extra safe, and we just found a terrific deal on one that you might not even be aware of.

In addition to alcohol and other disinfectants, UV-C light also kills bacteria and viruses including human coronaviruses. That’s why having a UV sanitizer wand is such a great idea, but the problem is sellers are taking advantage of the pandemic and charging over $100 for most models. Lucky for you, we came across a top-rated option on Amazon that’s in stock now and it’s not price-gouged, so you can pick one up for just $39.99 if you hurry.

It’s called the Hygea SteriWand UV Sanitizer Wand and it’s even waterproof so you don’t have to worry about getting it wet when you use it in the bathroom or around the kitchen. This model is compact, portable, battery-powered, and it uses the 254nm UV-C light band for maximum effectiveness. Use it on any surface you want and within just a few minutes, that surface will be sanitized. Just please be smart and don’t use it on your skin or on anyone else, and definitely keep it away from your face and eyes.

Updated to clarify that this model is battery-powered.
