Activeion Ionator HOM Giveaway – Chemical-Free Cleaning & Sanitizing Tool

I test a lot of unusual stuff at dkM.  Most of these are things I’m hoping will help us to live more chemical-free lives.  Some of these things work and others don’t.  When I was asked to review the Activeion Ionator HOM, a futuristic spray-bottle gadget that claims to clean and even gill germs with mere tap water, I’ll admit to healthy feelings of skepticism.  So it was with a sense of doubt that I filled my Activeion with plain old tap water for the first time.

The Activeion, a souped-up battery-powered spray bottle, ionizes plain tap water as you spray.  The temporarily ionized water becomes aerated and supercharged allowing it to clean as well as a general all-purpose household cleaner, as the instruction sheet told me.  Better yet, it’s said to kill germs and bacteria, sanitizing surfaces, even killing  viruses.  In fact, an independent  third-party lab certified that the microbiology testing met the Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) standard.  The tests concluded the Activeion Ionator HOM completely inactivates the H1N1  virus when used as directed. 

After charging my Activeion for a couple of hours I was ready to roll.  The first thing I cleaned was my kitchen faucet, which I know very well never shines when I wipe it with plain old tap water.  I sprayed and wiped quickly.  It shone.  Huh.  Afraid of coincidence or a too-hopefull attitude, I sprayed and wiped the hallway mirrors which I usually clean with vinegar water.  The fine mist of the Activeion wiped off quickly, removing my son’s mouth and nose prints easily.  No streaks either.  Okay, but the stove.  Surely it won’t clean MY stovetop, my snow-white stovetop which gets lentil soup splatters and baked-on veggie goop that only comes up with baking soda, vinegar, and elbow grease.  Yet again, the wondrous electric spray bottle on steroids cleaned it.

At that point I began to build chemical-free mommy enthusiasm, and over the course of the following two weeks I cleaned with reckless abandon.  We all did.  Even my 3 1/2 year old son sprayed the kitchen floor for me as I wiped away.  My  two parrot cages got cleaned using only tap water run through the Activeion; it was a much easier cleaning process, and safe.  Each parrot enjoyed a spray-down from the ionized water as well, since the Activeion is so safe it requires no warning label of any kind.  

I can’t clearly explain all the science behind why the Activeion works and why hospitals and swanky hotels have been cleaning with similar but larger units for years.  But my science- and engineer-brained husband assures me the principles are sound.  (Bill Nye the Science Guy will explain it to you in the video below.)

I’m totally hooked on this little gadget and have since used it instead of my beloved vinegar water spray bottle, no easy feat as my regular readers can imagine.  Although I don’t have a lab to properly test things like germ killing and sanitation, I’m happily giving this one my stamp of approval.  Proving that tap water can be converted into a safe and effective cleaning tool is no easy feat.  It’s definitely an issue of “you’ve got to see it to believe it”.  So the people of Activeion would like to give away one of their Activeion Ionator HOM units to one very lucky dkM reader!  ($169 retail.)

  1. I learned that the technology to create ionized water through electrolysis has been around for 50 years, but this is the first time negative and positive streams of water have been able to be combined. I love the thought of this gadget, not only for the practical reasons, but I think it would actually get my kids to clean!

  3. WOW this actually reduced the surface tension of the water so it can clean more easily! It attracks dirt like a magnet so you can wipe it away 😀 Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention, this would be amazing in my house cause I also do not love chemicals and we have a lot of pets including a ferret and this would be like heaven to use in his cage!!!

  4. Tests confirm the ionator EXP and ionator HOM kill the H1N1 influenza A virus in six seconds leaving behind zero chemical residue.

  5. OK,
    So it even has a warranty (Limited 1 year) and lasts 3-5. I think I need this. I am currently using a steamer, but this seems way easier!

  8. This wonderful machine can protect a family from swine flu, This is outstanding as this flu will probably hang around for some time.

  9. From cleaning medical devices and computer chips to food processing plants, the technology to create ionized water through water electrolysis has been around for more than 50 years. In the past, water electrolysis has created two streams of water â?? negative and positive â?? which could not be combined. With the introduction of the ionator EXPâ?¢ hand-held sprayer, however, this is the first time both streams have been combined to work together to produce a general-purpose cleaner and sanitizer.

  10. I learned that this technology has been around for quite a while:

    So when I read that, my first thought was the line from the movie Ghostbusters: “Don’t cross the streams!”

  11. The technology driving the ionator products has been used for decades in food processing plants, four-star restaurants, and large hotels.

  12. When used as directed, the ionator EXP kills more than 99.9% of harmful bacteria, including the 2009 Pandemic H1N1 Influenza A Virus in six seconds.

  15. This looks fantastic! I’m a firm believer in Ionizers in the home – we have an air purifier w/this and I’m constantly AMAZED @ home much debris it takes out of the air! I SOOOO need this – we are having a new Grandaughter in 1 month and it looks like she may have alot of health problems, so this would be a Godsend to us. Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

  16. I learned that with the Activeion Ionator, the surface tension of water is reduced to wet the cleaning surface more thoroughly.
    Thanks!

  17. I learned that the Activeion Ionator HOM cleans Multiple Surfaces such as: Glass, Stainless Steel, Natural Stone, and Carpet/Fabrics.
    Thanks!

  18. I learned that the inspiration for the the technology behind Activeion came from the founder’s sensitive little chinchilla, named Chili. What a neat fact!!
    Thanks!
