Struggling to find hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes? You’re not alone. Due to the recent pandemic, most sanitizing products are completely sold out across the world. Most people are unable to get the basic tools they need to fight off this novel virus.
However, what few people know, is that UV lights are used to kill viruses and bacterias in hospitals, and purchasing a UV light tool is an easy and affordable way to disinfect your home.
According to an article in NYMAG, microbiologist Alex Berezow stated that “UV light is lethal to bacteria and viruses because of its high frequency that scrambles and damages their nuclear material. When it damages the DNA (or RNA) code of these pathogens, it also triggers lethal mutations that prevent them from reproducing properly.” While there have not been any tests specifically on Coronavirus, because of it’s ‘newness’, Berezow said “UV light kills everything: bacteria, fungi, viruses. It should kill coronavirus.” What we do know for sure is that it is effective against other viruses like the flu.”
The good news is that UV light products are available for households and they are affordable and easy to use. By using UV light tools, you do not have to worry about putting harmful chemicals on your household goods, such as bleach-based products, which can cause skin reactions and other unpleasantries. You also save on ‘trash’ by not having to throw away tons of sanitizing bottles and piles of sanitizing wipes, and in turn fewer trips to the grocery store or other virus exposing locations.
Overall a UV light is less expensive as well, than having to buy dozens of bottles of hand sanitizers and wipes over the next several months. We recommend using a portable UV light tool so that you can easily target any area of your house. Check out the latest tool created here created by Shop Light Sanitizer.
