Kills Up To 99.9% Of Germs In Your Shoes
Dries Your Shoes While Killing Bacteria
The Suncatcher™ UV Shoe Sanitizer & Dryer is a safe way to sanitize your athletic, work and casual shoes, boots and gloves. Shoes can be the perfect breeding ground for germs that can cause bacteria which in turn, can cause your shoes to smell badly. The shoe sanitizer does not use chemicals or sprays to mask the problem. The hot air drying and UV light has been scientifically proven to kill fungus and bacteria that can cause athletes foot, nasty shoe odor and fungus. The UV light is more effective than sprays and powders that can leave a residue or simply mask the smell. The Suncatcher™ Shoe Sanitizer & Dryer is easy to use! At night or during the day, just insert the Suncatcher™ UV Shoe Sanitizer & Dryer into a pair of shoes, turn on the system, and an automatic cycle will sanitize and dry shoes in 8 hours and boots in 12 hours.

UV stands for ultraviolet light. Ultraviolet light represents the frequency of light between 100 nanometers (nm) and 400nm and cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Within the UV spectrum lie three distinct bands of light: UVA, UVB and UVC.
• UVA (400nm-315nm): The long wave UV light (315nm to 400nm) or UVA refers, to what we commonly call “black light.” This is the longest wavelength region and has the lowest energy. UVA represents the largest portion of natural UV light.
• UVB (315nm-280nm): The UVB (280nm to 315nm), or mid-range UV, causes sunburn. • UVC (280nm-100nm): The germicidal UV light (100nm to 280nm), or UVC, is effective in microbial control.
Scientific research has proven that the most effective frequency for microbial destruction is between 280nm and 200nm, which is within the UVC band. Therefore, as long as the nm frequency of a germicidal lamp is well controlled within that range, the microorganisms will be destroyed effectively.
