OUR THOUGHTS…We took this spray EVERYWHERE and sprayed it in a lot of places INCLUDING under armpits in addition to regular deodorant (and YES, it worked double time AND SOME while still keeping the funk at bay).  I could spray everything else all day long but I’d never REALLY know (at least not me) if the product REALLY worked as claimed to rid bacteria and such.

It was great for the office- the team and I sprayed our phones, keyboards, and mice.

It was great on the go – sprayed toilet seats and grocery carts prior to use.

It was great at home- counters, tables, light switches, my own office area, and all cell phones.

It can be used practically on everything, harmless (hello…we sprayed food, eating utensils & our bodies!), it has no odor (just taste a bit lemony), and it’s so portable for on the go in it’s 3oz bottle!

While I did find the product to be on the pricey side, they do sell a 2-pack of the 3oz bottles which I can see myself purchasing in the future.

WHERE TO BUY…The IV-7 Direct Online Store; prices vary depending on size purchased. The 2 pack of 3oz bottles is $20.

    Once applied to a hard surface, it continues killing germs for at least 24 hours.

    I'd use this in my classroom activity centers.

    The active ingredient in IV-7 Ultimate Germ Defense™ is SDC (silver dihydrogen citrate). It is an electrolytically generated source of stabilized ionic silver that kills germs in two ways: (1) Microbes are attracted to SDC as a food source, allowing the silver ion to enter the microbe. Once inside, the silver ion de-natures the microbe’s DNA, which stops its ability to replicate and kills it; (2) The silver ion also deactivates the microbe’s membrane proteins, killing it.

    Because IV-7 Ultimate Germ Defense destroys the germs, they don’t develop resistance to it!
