How often do I have to treat smelly shoes for the shoe odor to go away?
1-2 treatments with the SteriShoe® sanitizer should be sufficient to initially eliminate the odor causing bacteria from your shoes. We recommend using the SteriShoe® sanitizer after each time you wear a pair of shoes. Daily use guarantees that you always put your feet into a clean pair of shoes.
What safety features does the SteriShoe® sanitizer have?
Ultraviolet light can be harmful if you look at it or bring it close to your skin. For these reasons, we have designed safety features into our SteriShoe® sanitizers to prevent the lamp from lighting when it is not enclosed in a shoe. Please refer to the Instruction Manual for your specified model for troubleshooting tips on how to overcome the safety features.

But I would like the tab updated to “Instruction Manuals/Troubleshooting” to be more clear. The manuals do contain troubleshooting steps.
How are SteriShoe sanitizers different from other uv shoe products?
Plastic absorbs UVC and renders it ineffective. Our SteriShoe sanitizers are designed to be as open as possible to provide direct UVC exposure to the shoe interior. We are aware of other ultraviolet shoe deodorizers that have the lamp almost completely encased in plastic; the plastic in these products blocks almost all the UVC light from reaching the inside of the shoe.
SteriShoe sanitizers are the only product that has been awarded a Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association for cleaning the inside of shoes. It is also the only product clinically proven to destroy harmful germs inside shoes that can cause foot infections and shoe odor (as published in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association)
