How it works
The patented SteriShoeÂ® sanitizer uses germicidal ultraviolet (UVC) light. The UVC light emitted by SteriShoeÂ® is clinically proven to destroy microorganisms which will sanitize the inside of your shoesÂ by killing 99.9% of the microbes that cause toenail fungus, athleteâ€™s foot and offensive shoe odour. TheÂ UVC light method of killing bacteria/microorganisms has been used for decades in a variety of settings including hospitals and water treatment systems.
Sweat from feet, along with the warm dark environment of your shoes causes them to become a breeding ground for the fungus and bacteria that cause not only toenail fungus, but also, athleteâ€™s foot, and shoe odour.
Easy to use
When you take off your shoes just insert the SteriShoeÂ® shoe sanitizer into your shoes as you would insert a normal shoe tree, place in the bag provided. A simple press of a button starts a 45 minute treatment cycle. After 45 minutes up to 99.9% of the harmful microbes that can cause toenail fungus, athleteâ€™s foot and offensive shoe odour are destroyed.
The UVC light is a powerful germicide. To prevent people from coming in direct contact with UVC light, the SteriShoeÂ® shoe sanitizer includes several safety features. First, a compression sensor requires that the SteriShoeÂ® ultraviolet shoe sanitizer be in a shoe and slightly compressed. If the SteriShoeÂ® shoe sanitizer is treating a shoe and it is removed from the shoe, the compression sensor will shut the UVC light off. Second, an ambient light sensor pre-scans the environment before allowing the SteriShoeÂ® shoe sanitizer to turn on. If the ambient light sensor detects a dark environment, the SteriShoeÂ® shoe sanitizer will turn on; however, if enough light is detected it will not turn on. Two shoe bags are provided along with 2 straps for sandals or open back shoes so a user can compress and provide a dark environment for the SteriShoeÂ® shoe sanitizer to function safely.
