Despite being skeptical I still went ahead and ordered one just to find out. Today the Lotus Sanitizer arrived and I had a chance to try it out. I went around the house spraying the oxygenated water on furniture, bathroom tiles, kitchen stuff, mirrors, windows, laptops, even my office desk. It seemed to be just as effective as the vinegar/water/ammonia mix we used to use on everything. I like that the sanitizer just smells like ozone rather than vinegar. It also uses very little power to generate the O3 (55W for 5 min). Here are the downsides.
- The unit costs $100
- My unit does not make it 100% full only 98% then errors out
- There is a "boost cartridge" that needs replacing at some regular interval
- The O3 only lasts for fifteen minutes in the spray bottle
