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.
Shoe odor is primarily caused by bacteria in your shoes. The SteriShoe® sanitizer helps remove the source of shoe odor and smelly shoes by destroying up to 99.9% of the bacteria in your shoe using UV germicidal light.
The SteriShoe sanitizer is very convenient to use. It works like a shoe tree and takes seconds to insert into a shoe. It is activated with a simple push of a button. Unlike chemical sprays and powders that mask odor, germicidal UV light (UVC) is a safe, proven and powerful way to kill bacteria and microorganisms. The SteriShoe sanitizer harnesses this germicidal UVC light to kill up to 99.9% of the shoe odor causing bacteria in your shoes.
Sprays and powders will also fill your shoe cushioning. As there is no way to wash your shoes, these chemicals will never come out of your shoes and essentially become a chemical bath for your feet. The SteriShoe sanitizer is completely chemical free.
