Disinfecting Fogger
 
Has anyone gotten their hands on a disinfecting fogger? The college in my community is getting a bunch of them and I've seen them for sale for a few thousand dollars. I heard that our local nursing home is trying to rent the ones they know the college is getting. We have a lot of active cases in my state and a spike in hospitalizations and death :( I'm wondering if there's any way providers can get ahold of one of these to help keep toys and equipment germ free. I'm about to do a lot of research on grant writing because I seriously need one in my life.

My DH and I are planning to get one like this:
It's less than $200

Thanks for that link! That is much more reasonable! Do you know if you are just supposed to use a bleach solution in them?

I am not sure... if you scroll to bottom of linked page it shows the disinfectant they use/sell for it

No bleach- you'll wreck your carpet and furniture.
Sanitizing tabs are what these usually use. Like Steramine tablets (Amazon).

Honestly, unless you purchase an electrostatic sprayer, then it's really no different than using a fine mist sprayer with sterilizing solution. The electrostatic sprayers are expensive. Usually $400+.

Yeah I wouldn't buy it if bleach is what is used that'd be terrible for your lungs too I'd imagine. I have a little guy with croup/reactive airways and my kids and husband have a family history of pulmonary hypertension. I would use vinegar if I could. I wonder if the solution that goes in these things safe for mouthing kids? It's probably too good to be true. It would b good for outdoor equipment probably though like my climber and swing set but so is a spray bottle of bleach solution and a garden hose. I'll have to check into the solution for them and the tabs you mentioned.

I have one and I love it. I use anasphere plus liquid or QD64 when I can find it.
