The SteriShoe® sanitizer uses a specific wavelength of ultraviolet C light that is germicidal (253.7 nm). This is commonly called “germicidal UV” or “UVC.” UVC is emitted by the sun, but it is completely filtered by our atmosphere.
Germicidal ultraviolet light is proven to destroy 99.9% of targeted microorganisms. We have tested the SteriShoe®sanitizer with the number one, two, and three fungi that cause nail fungus and athlete’s foot and verified these results. Shoe odor is caused by bacteria and we have verified that the SteriShoe® sanitizer destroys bacteria as well.
