Using UV-C lights for sanitization
Updated: Jul 15, 2020
I'm not sure about y'all but I'm both excited and fearful of going back out into the public. It's especially hard to get back to the world knowing that I'll always need a huge handbag full of disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, gloves, lysol, Part of me is ok with all of this but is really worried about the amount of waste that we're creating.
We started looking into alternative options and came across UV-C lights. These lights are used to kill algae and bacteria in aquariums and they are also used in hospitals to kill bacteria as well. Most bacteria have very thin walls allowing the light to shine through and change the molecular structure of it's DNA then it dies.
My kids call them aliens lol, they don't go into any of the rooms when they are on. Keep in mind that UV-C rays are not good for skin so you should purchase lights that have a timer feature or just keep that in mind when you're using them. This one works great for us, its especially good when you're trying to clean your shoes after walking around in the city (yuck).
This is the wand that I've been using in my purse. It's a little weird for you mentally when you using these lights as nothing changes to the item you're sanitizing them but that's beside the point LOL. It has a safety feature that turns the light off when it's not facing down. I'm also ordering this one for when we head back into the office since it covers more space.
