LIGHT SANITIZER – Portable UV lamp that sterilises Everything
The portable lamp that sterilises everything within reach.
If you’re out of hand sanitizer, cleaning sprays, and even the household products you can make your own sanitizers with (read: rubbing alcohol), there’s another option to consider: UVC light, a little-known, relatively new way to reduce the number of germs on surfaces in your home. But if you’ve ever seen those travel-sized disinfecting wands and felt skeptical about their efficacy, you’re not alone. There’s only one type of UV light that’s actually effective when it comes to killing germs.
Does UV light work as a sanitizer?: According to scientists, UVC light is the only kind of light that can reliably kill germs, and is sometimes used in hospitals for sanitizing in tandem with chemical cleaners to further reduce germs, especially ones that are drug-resistant. Note that chemical cleaners are more effective overall than UVC light sterilizers in terms of the percentage of germs they eradicate—UVC sanitizers don’t kill quite as many germs as do chemicals like alcohol. Meanwhile, UVA and UVB light are totally ineffective in killing germs.
Is it safe?: UVC light should be kept away from skin and eyes because it can damage them and any other cells it comes into contact with, which is also how it kills microbes. Many UVC sanitizers have child-safe locks, don’t work when pointed upward/towards the user, or only function to sanitize items in an enclosed space within the product in order to keep the UVC light contained.
