How to Make Spring Cleaning Easier With UV Sanitization

Your tech, jewelry and accessories are a breeding ground for harmful germs and bacteria. Supercharge your spring cleaning with a UV sanitizer for a 360° disinfection.

Spring is officially knocking - which means it's time to clear out the clutter and give your home a fresh new look. Many of us mop the floors, wipe down counters, and dust, but we often forget to clean the accessories that we use the most. Your smartphone, AirPods, eyeglasses and retainers are a magnet for microbes. If you're looking to up your cleaning game to include your tech, jewelry, and accessories, consider employing UV-C LED technology.

In the past, the best disinfection method involved physically wiping items with a cloth and cleaning solution. But it isn’t the 90’s anymore. Today, products equipped with ultraviolet (UV) light technology promise to rid your tech and other household items of germs that might make you sick. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what UV-C LED can do, how effective it is, and how to use it to sterilize the items in your home.

What is UV-C Light?

The sun produces three types of UV rays: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. Invisible to the human eye, UV-C (ultraviolet-C) rays are particularly effective at killing bacteria and viruses because they have shorter wavelengths than visible light, making them more harmful to living things.

According to the FDA, UV-C light is a known disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surface.  In fact, UV-C radiation has been used successfully for decades in hospital settings to reduce the spread of bacterial diseases.

What Are The Benefits?

UV-C LED is germicidal, meaning it can be used effectively as a disinfectant to kill microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants in your home.  UV sanitizers are designed to disinfect a wide range of surfaces, including electronics, jewelry, toothbrushes, glasses, and many other items in your home. Here are the main benefits of using an at-home UV light sanitizer:

  • 360° disinfection
  • Kills 99.99% of germs, bacteria and viruses
  • Portable sanitization
  • Fast, efficient cleaning cycles
  • Environmentally friendly

How To Use UVC LED at Home

A UV-C sterilizer box is the perfect tool to use on small items and accessories in your home and office. These devices are incredibly user-friendly, and involve no manual labor. You simply put your items inside the tank, close the lid, and select your cleaning cycle with the touch of a button. Once the sanitizing cycle starts, UV-C rays blast your items at every angle, killing 99.99% of harmful bacteria and germs. The highly reflective, stainless steel internal tank ensures that the light hits every corner of your items, regardless of the item’s shape.

What Items Can You Put in a UV-C Sanitizer?

We love the versatility that UVC LED devices offer. You can use this technology to clean and disinfect a range of personal items and accessories in every room of your house. UVC LED is ideal when used on phones, AirPods, Invisalign aligners, retainers, toothbrushes, razors, watches, jewelry, glasses, and so much more. Depending on the size of the device, you can disinfect multiple items at once to speed up your spring cleaning journey.

While there are a variety of these products on the market, most at-home UV sterilizers boast fast cleaning cycles with an automatic shut-off feature. This means you can "set it and forget it," without causing any inconvenience.

UV-C sanitizers are the perfect way to kill the harmful germs, bacteria, and viruses harbored on your personal items and accessories. They're easy to use, portable, chemical-free, and unbelievably versatile. Best of all, they will help make spring cleaning a breeze.
