This amazing Eco3Spray handheld sprayer from Franke turns ordinary tap water into ozone, enabling it to kill common nasties like E. coli, salmonella, staph aureus, and pneumonia without using any chemicals. The unit works by transforming water into ozone through a  diamond electrolysis cell , technology that was selected from 300 entries as one of the Top Twenty Most Viable Water Technologies at the  2013 Global Water Summit . As strong as chlorine in its cleaning power without the fumes, the ozone is completely safe – even for use on fruits and vegetables.
