Last December I reviewed a product that didn't only impress me, it absolutely amazed me. The innovative technology used by Activeion Cleaning Solutions to create machines that are able to clean and sanitize your home or business using water, just water, and eliminate the need for chemicals... why, here it is months later and I'm still shaking my head.
As a huge bonus to doing that review, not only did I get to learn about and use the incredible Activeion Pro, but when Activeion debuted their newest product, the ionator HOM, at Natural Products Expo West in March in Anaheim, CA they needed someone to come along to talk about it. A "real" person, if you will, to chat about how a product like this works and fits into everyday lives.
You really can't imagine how far down my jaw dropped when I heard they wanted that real person to be me.
I wouldn't even know where to start in describing how large and awe-inducing the Expo was, how fun it was to meet Bill Nye "The Science Guy," how incredibly warm and friendly everyone at Activeion was and how great it was to talk about and promote a product and company that I really believe in. It was an experience, to say the very least.
So, when Activeion contacted me recently and asked if I would like to actually review the ionator HOM, it was a no-brainer for me. Did I want to try a multi-surface cleaner that kills more than 99.9% of the most harmful bacteria and the H1N1 virus and can literally revolutionize the way that you clean your home? Absolutely.
To really understand how the ionator HOM works, you have to have had a few lessons in science (not one of my favorite subjects). But basically what happens when you press the trigger button is that the water traveling through the machine gets electrically charged so that it can attract and break down dirt. The water actually takes on the characteristics of a cleaner and sanitizer and makes it able to clean as well or better than general purpose and specialized chemical cleaners.
And does it work? Does it really work? There will always be skeptics, and that's okay, but the answer truly is YES. I can pick up the ionator HOM and move throughout my entire house with only this light-weight, easy-to-hold machine and any sort of rag, cloth or paper towel. Everything from countertops to glass to tile to plastic to carpet has been cleaned chemical-free here, thanks to Activeion.
Whatever it is that you want to clean, this machine will help you do it naturally in three easy steps. Step 1: Dirty surface. I really don't have to look all that far to find one, particularly in our kitchen. The stovetop constantly looks grimy and do I really want to clean it with something toxic when I'm going to be making my family's food on it?
Step 2: Spray. In less than 1 minute after having taken the ionator HOM out of the box, I had it filled with tap water and aimed at the stove. I love the green light that glows through the tank to let you know that it is working when you squeeze the button.
Step 3: Clean. Wipe the dirt away just like you would with any cleaner except without any worries of what is being left lingering behind that could potentially harm your family. You have a full 30 - 45 seconds to wipe away the activated water that has come out of the ionator HOM before it will turn back into... well, regular water.
When I'm using the ionator HOM, I don't miss the chemical smells or the filmy texture left behind from what I used to use to clean. Instead, I know that everything has been sanitized safely and whether my daughters pick up toys, run their hands on the table or eat a piece of food off of the high chair, I've kept that surface (and the environment) a little cleaner by using Activeion's products. You'll be hard-pressed to find any other cleaning products anywhere in the world that don't have chemical-related health warning labels!
If you have children, you need this (they can even help clean with it, it's never too early)! If you have pets, you need this. If you just care about doing something good for the earth while, in the long run, saving yourself money from having to ever buy another cleaning product again, you need this. Activeion has even generously offered a discount for your purchase: Through June 30, enter the coupon/promo code mailcarrier2 at checkout and receive $20 off of the retail price of the ionator HOM. With their 30-day money-back guarantee, you've got nothing to lose!
