Many civilizations dating back to 4,000B.C. used silver – a precious metal — for a variety of wellness and medical applications. In fact it was considered the primary antimicrobial agent prior to the advent of pharmaceutical antibiotics dating back to the early 1940s. Today, silver – a time-tested and well documented solution to many of life’s daily concerns is being introduced back into our mainstream lives.

Pure silver kills germs, fungi and viruses, as well as inhibits the growth of bacteria that can cause odors, including stinky feet. Pluggz is among those who value this amazing natural element which led them to introduce a new pure silver cloth, called Stellarcleenz, into their pluggzSPA line.

Bacteria and viruses are becoming more pervasive today. And increasing global travel makes it easier for them to be well seasoned travelers. Many chemically based anti-microbial products (a surging market), build up resistance after long and repeated use. And those containing 62% alcohol or ethanol – a common formula – can dry and crack skin and expose bodies to vulnerable gateways into our internal systems. (Moms in particular dislike alcohol based products. Who wants to put what can equal a 120 poof level of alcohol into a kid’s systems? Most say “no way”). In addition, alcohol based sanitizers all note they can be harmful if ingested or get in one’s eyes, as well as being flammable under certain conditions. Silver has none of these warnings.

We are increasingly being introduced to new nutritional ways of living and bombarded with messages that we should care a great deal about our diets. Our skin, however, is the largest organ of absorption into our bodies. What we put on it is as important as what we eat; maybe even more so.

Stellarcleenz are made of 99% pure silver and not Nano particle technology. They are made using an ionic technology in a bath process where pure silver is plated to fibers. It will not wash out. They contain no chemicals or toxins and not only are safe, they are portable and easy to stash anywhere. They are natural and have lasting re-usability making them more economical than many a squirt, pump of a spray, or swipe with a disposable sheet. And they are uniquely multi-purpose — discreet to use in social or business occasions (no more sweaty palms and reluctant clasps with new acquaintances); useable on surfaces and electronic devices; as well as on any parts of the body and skin.

Stellarcleenz have been laboratory tested for over 10,000 wipes without laundering and over 500 washes under scientific protocols without any reduction in the silver’s sanitizing effects. They don’t need to be regularly washed (bacteria does not grow on silver); some nonetheless chose to do more often. You can toss in a washing machine or simply put a dab of soap and rub under a faucet – just use mild soap no bleach in both cases). Stellarcleenz are also useable dry, damp or wet.

Bacteria, fungi and viruses are here to stay and you don’t have to be a germaphobe to be concerned about their potentially compromising effects to want to fend them off. Stellarcleenz provide a stellar solution.




The immune system is probably the most important one in the body, because it influences the entire body.  It’s the defense force, fighting, and stopping, those invaders both within and without the body.

Keep your immune system in tip top share. The better it works, the better the body will cope with all the toxicity it will come across—and vice versa, because the lighter the toxic load, the better your immune system will work.

Here are some common things that weaken it.

  • Allergies: These are really a malfunction of the immune system because the body will see everything as a potential enemy and attack it. The immune system will keep working and working, which eventually results in a weakening and even more allergies.
  • Stress:  Whether the threat is real or imagined, the physiological reaction will always be the same, including increased cortisol and adrenaline, high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and inflammation. You’ll also experience sleep deprivation, possible weight gain, and hair loss (or gain, in places you don’t want it, like the face). Practice stress management techniques, including meditation, breathing exercises and self-care like massages.
  • Processed foods: Today’s fast-food mentality includes packaged “convenience” foods that are often laden with sugar, salt, fat and chemicals. A healthy diet should include plenty vegetables and fruit; nuts, seeds; some spices like turmeric and cinnamon; and herbs, such as parsley and garlic.
  • Sleep deprivation:  A few years back, the Archives of Internal Medicine conducted a small, contained study.  They gave 153 people the rhino (common cold) virus by nose and those who got less than 7 hours were 300 percent more susceptible to getting a cold.
  • Alcohol.  Although some studies reveal that moderate alcohol intake can actually aid the immune system, alcohol overall has detrimental effect on health, including the brain and cardio system.
  • Lack of exercise. It enhancesmoods, by releasing those natural feel-good hormones, endorphins, which also promotes better sleep. Exercise carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells and helps detoxify the body, by eliminating toxins, accumulated wastes and poisons.
