UV Sterilizer Devices You Can Shop Online Right Now
From portable devices to UV lamps for your entire home.
"UV light is lethal to bacteria and viruses because of its high frequency that scrambles and damages their nuclear material," microbiologist Alex Berezow tells The Strategist. After ample exposure, devices with UVC light in particular can kill microorganisms in an entire space as well as in objects you can't rinse with water.
That said, note that having a UV sterilizer at home still doesn't guarantee it from being virus- and bacteria-free. It can, however, be an incredibly convenient way to improve sanitation. And if you're looking into owning one, check out the devices below:
