I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
Let me begin this post by saying, I am always worried about foot problems and foot odor being present in my home. First off, because I myself, only own 1 (yes I said 1) pair of sneakers (tennis shoes for those who aren't southern I think :-)). Second, because I have an 8 year old who sweats a lot, and has just started playing sports. Third, because I am married to military man who wears hot, steel-toe boots to work every single day, then comes home to change into sneakers for working out.
So, now that you know the issues, you can probably appreciate the reason why I was pleased to get the opportunity to try out the SteriShoe UV Shoe Sanitizer. This is definitely one of the best products to come through my front door this year.
What is it you ask? Well, simply put, the SteriShoe UV Sanitizer is a safe and effective way to sanitize the inside of your shoes by using a hygenic, germ destroying UV light. No, sprays or chemicals, easy to use and helps to protect the family's shoes against problems such as:
- Toenail Fungus
- Athlete's Foot
- Complications for those with health conditions such as Diabetes
Now, if those reasons alone don't make you want to try this shoe sanitizer, I don't know what will. We all know that sweaty feet can cause organisms to live in our shoes, but I don't think we pay as much attention as we should to the problems that unclean shoes can cause, especially for those with medical conditions. According to the SteriShoe website, in a quote taken from an article in the "Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association"; the SteriShoe ultraviolet shoe sanitizer was shown to be effective in reducing the fungal burden in shoes.
I have been using the SteriShoe in my husband's shoes since it arrived, and it seems to have helped to make a significant change in the odor of the shoes. They don't smell brand new, but definitely less sweaty, and I am confident that with a few more uses, there will hardly be any scent at all. I received a size Medium SteriShoe (Men's size 6-10 and women size 8-12), and I was unable to use it in my "only" pair of sneakers, which is a size 6. I probably could have tried to force it to fit, but I didn't want to risk breaking such an amazing product, and I figured since they do come in a small, I'd better give that one a try for my shoes and my son's.
What you get:
Left and right shoe SteriShoe UV Sanitizers
2 Shoe Bags
2 UVC Lamps (Mine were already installed, so I will assume that's how they all come)
A Power Cord
2 Straps for Backless Shoes
1 Owner's Manual
How to use it:
1. Plug in the power supply.
2. Plug one power cord into each SteriShoe sanitizer.
3. Insert the right SteriShoe sanitizer into the right shoe and the left into the left shoe (They are clearly marked on the bottom).
4. Place each SteriShoe shoe sanitizer into each shoe and place each of them into the shoe bags.
5. Close the shoe bag as to not allow any light in.
6. Press the On/Off button to begin treating your shoes.
7. If the button is glowing solid purple, the sanitizer is treating the shoe and will turn off after 45 minutes. (Do not remove the shoe bag while the sanitizers are in use).
8. Once the process is complete, the on/off button will no longer glow and it will be safe to remove the sanitizer from the shoes.
Quite easy to operate, and can be used as a daily treatment for shoes. It only takes 45 minutes to rid your shoes of 99.9% of harmful organisms.
Talk about an innovative product. This one is on the top of my list for sure. You can find more information about the SteriShoe UV Shoe Sanitizer HERE, and please follow SteriShoe on: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for the latest updates on the SteriShoe UV Shoe Sanitizer.
