Do I need to use a special toothbrush?
Nope! Just about every manual toothbrush and electric head fit great in our sanitizers. (See the question below for more info on electric heads.) Very large manual toothbrushes, like Radius brand and large denture brushes will not fit.


Will my electric toothbrush fit in your sanitizers?
Yes! All Violife countertop sanitizers, including Zapi, work with all electric toothbrush heads, including Sonicare, Oral-B, and other brands. 

Our travel models, the Violife Personal/Travel Sanitizer, iZap, and Duo work with small electric heads like those from Oral-B and newer-model Sonicare heads. Older Sonicare heads with a large semi-spherical base are too large to fit into our travel sanitizers.


How often do I need to replace the UV Bulb?
For almost all our products, never! Only the Original Violife Countertop sanitizer (Model VIO100) has a special UV bulb that needs to be replaced every 12-18 months depending on how often you use your Violife. This ensures the maximum level of germ-eliminating power.

All of our other Violife products use a LIFETIME bulb! These bulbs are similar to long-lasting fluorescent lights, which is why they last so long, especially since your sanitizer is only used for several minutes each day.


Where can I get new bulbs for my Violife VIO100 Countertop Sanitizer?
Our special UV bulbs are conveniently available here. Some of our web resellers and catalogs also carry our replacement bulbs.


 How do I clean my Sanitizer?
Below are some quick tips. For detailed instruction manuals on all of our products, visit the product page on this website to download a copy to your computer.

Violife ZAPI: Wipe the exterior surfaces with a damp cloth. To clean the interior drip cup, hold the bottom of the Zapi firmly in one hand, and with your other hand squeeze and lift the top cap up and off. If you have trouble removing the cap, use a coin to gently pry the cap off at the seam around the center of the Zapi. Remove the drip tray and use warm water and mild soap to rinse the tray clean, then re-assemble.

Violife VIO100 Countertop Sanitizer: Always disconnect the AC outlet from the wall before cleaning! Use a damp cloth for the outside surfaces. The removable drip cup inside the Violife can be thoroughly washed in soapy water to remove any residue from your toothbrush. Replacement drip cups are also available here.

Violife Personal/Travel Sanitizer: Wipe the outside and inside surfaces with a damp cloth. Remove the drip tray and rinse with soapy water.

Violife Duo, Violife UV Wand, and iZap: Wipe all surfaces with a damp cloth as needed.

Violife Dental Spa: Wipe the exterior surfaces with a damp cloth. The interior cup and tray can be removed and thoroughly washed with warm, soapy water.


What is the difference between the Violife Personal/Travel Sanitizer and the iZap Personal Sanitizer?
The Violife Personal/Travel Sanitizer is a deluxe case with a metallic finish, a removable drip tray for enhanced cleaning, and a free Violife designer toothbrush with a suction-cup handle so it stands up on your counter.

The iZap personal Sanitizer doesn't have a removable drip tray, and includes a standard toothbrush.

They both use our germicidal UV technology to eliminate 99.9% of germs on your toothbrush.
