ActiveIon Pro Review and Giveaway



Okay, I feel like those network news announcers who say, "Coming up after the break... Warren Buffet is giving away a billion dollars.... will you qualify to get some of it? Stay tuned!", and you sit through the ads and wait and wait for the story but it never comes, so you sit through another set of ads and wait, until the story finally come up, 3 commercial breaks later. It has been over 2 weeks ago that I blogged about the Active Ion Pro event that I attended, and teased you all about a giveaway that I'll be running. And you've waited and waited and waited so patiently....

.... until at last, it's here. My ActiveIon Pro review and giveaway post! And it's totally worth the wait, I promise you. I feel so lucky to have been given one to try out, and so excited to give one away that I'm almost peeing in my pants. But that's okay, because I've got the ActiveIon Pro to clean the mess up.


The ActiveIon Pro cleaning system uses ordinary tap water and turns it into a powerful cleaning agent. You charge up their special sprayer (It took me about a week of heavy use before I had to recharge), pour tap water into the sprayer, and use it like a regular cleaning spray. Yup, just water. Pure, eco-friendly, economical water. No chemicals to pollute the environment or your kids' lungs or skin or eyes. It's so safe that my kids like to shock people by spraying it into their mouths:

The geek in me loves how it works -- so advanced, and yet so simple. ActiveIon Pro cleaner is the perfect example of how we should be using all the technology we have at our fingertips to solve everyday problems and change the way we do things. Simply put, the bottle introduces a tiny electric charge into the water so that dirt and germs attach themselves to the water in the same way that they would attach themselves to soap or detergent. If you want a better explanation, watch a video of Bill Nye the Science Guy explaining it.

Ah..... now comes the question. So that's how it works, but does it work? Yes, O Doubting Ones, it does! It works like magic on our dirty, grimy, sticky kitchen table. On our fingerprint-studded walls and windows. And it's sooo much fun to use. I like hearing the Bzzzzz when I pull the trigger, and I like seeing the little green light so I know it's working. I feel like Buck Rogers or Judy Jetson (I'm dating myself with that comparison, aren't I?).

Once it sinks in that It's Just Water, but It's Water that Lifts Out Dirt and Disinfects, your mind spins with all the possibilities. I use it everywhere I used to use a spray cleaner, and more. When we're done with a baking dish or casserole, I give it a little spritz with the ActiveIon to make it easier to scrub. Alfie loves using it to spray on his morning bowl of blueberries to rinse them. Once it passes through the ActiveIon Pro, that water doesn't just wash the dirt away, it also kills 99% of bacteria. Sounds like Lysol, doesn't it, except that you can use it on fruit as well as toilet seats (Sound gross? Get over it!). The kids want to use it to wash their faces and brush their teeth, but I'm drawing the line at that because I don't want them sucking the nozzle and damaging my precious new cleaner.

At $299 per unit, the ActiveIon Pro is pricey, but it's an investment -- one that helps you Go Green and Save some Green in the long run. In fact, the state of Hawaii recently ordered 80 of these babies, one for every school. Now that's what I call smart!

And now for the giveaway: One lucky Bonggamom Finds winner will receive their very own ActiveIon Pro. It has a retail value of $299 -- easily the highest-value prize I've ever given away on this blog!

We recycle, we use some green cleaning products. We have changed out all of our light bulbs. We turn off lights or don't use them when possible. We find ways to reuse some of the things we already have. We use Freecycle.

We recycle everything and are remodeling our kitchen to make it easier to do so. I use vinegar and baking soda to clean and reusable cloths instead of paper towels and napkins. We each have our own reusable water bottles with filtered water from home - no bottled water. We use reusable shopping bags. We have an organic garden and compost. Blessings fhartman@frontiernet.net

Ohhhhh. This is something I have wanted for so long now! Our household makes sure to recycle weekly, we use eco friendly cleaning products, dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent. Even our dryer sheets are eco-friendly now. We bring our own shopping bags to the grocery store and are always finding a way to reuse and refunction everyhing in our house. :)
