Cleanpen product kills germs on Black Friday’s most used items: Pens & Checkout Styluses

DALLAS:’s Black Friday savings special includes a never-before-offered $9.95 special with two units used to sanitize ink pens and those filthy grocery store checkout styluses, refill packs and free shipping, all for the price of one.

The Cleanpen product, designed by an Austin, Texas area company, includes a uniquely designed antibacterial sponge that’s nestled inside of a plastic shell.  At each end of the unit is a hole where an ink pen or checkout stylus can be glided through and 99 percent of germs on the pen or stylus are killed on contact.

The new low-pricing plan makes Cleanpen the perfect stocking stuff and gifts for friends, family, co-workers, teachers, and doctors for under $10.

“Two-for-one pricing with free shipping is something we think our customers will benefit from as they’re in search of the best deals on Black Friday,” said Donald Claxton, the founder of  “When you think about all the germs that people are going to come into contact with thru the holidays and the expanding cold and flu season, a germ killing ink pen or checkout stylus cleaner just makes sense for helping keep you and your family protected.” also offers a specially designed Cleanpen Pouch, which is hand-made in Balch Springs, Texas for $3.95.  An additional $2.95 includes personalized monogramming of up to three letters.

Because of the new pouches, Cleanpen becomes a more mobile product that can be used for cleaning ink pens before signing holiday gift receipts, before making out holiday gift lists, and even on the checkout terminal stylus used at grocery and department stores.

“With family visiting during the holidays, the onset of the cold and flu season, and the increased number of shoppers in retail outlets across the nation, it just makes sense to carry Cleanpen along and fight off as many germs at contact as possible,” Claxton said.

“We have established a great working relationship with and look forward to selling additional products they market in the future, including the commercially-design, Cleanstylus, which affixes to checkout counter terminals with just a click,” Claxton said.

Claxton said his firm is using the Santa Can’t Get Sick approach as a subtle implication—“If Santa can’t afford to get sick during the holidays, then how can you?” Claxton said.
