EVLA's UV light sterilizer box

UV light sanitizers kill viruses and germs without chemicals or creating waste. A UV light sterilizer box is the safest.

Hospitals have used ultraviolet light to sterilize equipment for decades. During the COVID-19 pandemic, people have become interested in using them in their homes and offices.

Even before the novel coronavirus basically shut down the world economy, we understood the importance of sanitation for our health. After the COVID-19 crisis has passed, we will still need to be on guard. And not only for that. The flu, colds, and other communicable diseases will still be with us. 

How effective are all those sprays and disposable wipes we have been using? Whatever effect they have on viruses and other germs, they have a bad environmental impact. Sustainable living requires minimizing or eliminating single-use disposable products. It also requires minimizing or eliminating hazardous chemicals.

Steam and boiling water also provide non-toxic sterilization. Mothers have been sanitizing baby bottles that way for generations. It can be messy and time-consuming. For one thing, they must clean their equipment daily to prevent rust and lime buildup.

Several manufacturers make UV light sterilizer boxes. You put objects in the box, close the lid, and turn it on. A powerful UV light in the box comes on and kills every living thing it touches on the surface of those objects. Effective killing can take several minutes, but when the machine turns off, everything you put in it is sterile. It’s much easier and more convenient than rubbing alcohol or steam.

EVLA’s UV sterilizer box

EVLA’s is a small, family-owned business. It is very responsive to consumers’ questions on Amazon. 

Put your mask, phone, remotes, keys, baby bottles and toys, credit cards, and other small objects in this hospital-strength UV light sterilizer box, turn it on, and walk away. What could be more convenient? You don’t need to remove any batteries from remotes, either. The UV light touches only surfaces and does not penetrate. Everything will be sterilized in 11 minutes while you’re doing something else.. 

Compared to steam sanitizers, it uses less energy and doesn’t need cleaning to remove limescale or rust. No worries; it doesn’t contain BPA,  phthalates, or lead, either. 

It’s big enough (barely) to fit 8-ounce Dr Brown’s baby bottles: 9.5 inches long, 7.5 inches wide, and 7.0 inches deep. That’s also big enough to sterilize an  iPad or other tablet. You will, of course, have to wash the bottles before putting them in the sterilizer box. So it has a convenient drying cycle. You don’t need to dry the bottles first.

The interior has a reflective surface to sterilize all sides of whatever is in it. But, of course, it only sanitizes surfaces that the light actually shines on.

If, for example, you want to sanitize a children’s bottle with a straw inside, you have to remove the lid and the straw and put them next to the bottle before turning on the box. Take credit cards and cash out of your billfold to sanitize them. Also, you must not overstuff the box. If two objects overlap, the UV light will not sterilize the unexposed surfaces.

You can even sterilize fruit. After all, it grew in sunlight. 

It amazes me how few negative reviews this product has and how few positive reviews mention problems. Some wonder how tightly the lid closes. Others wonder about the indicator light.

Some caveats

According to an article in WebMD, UV light has successfully sterilized hospital equipment for decades, but devices for home use haven’t been around long. Scientists haven’t had much time to do research on them. They are not regulated. 

Devising UV technology that is both safe and effective requires very good science and engineering. The best products will therefore be expensive. Many cost twice as much at the EVLA’s UV sanitizer box. Anything less expensive ones probably won’t work reliably.

It has been independently lab tested, which is good. But all those excellent reviews only provide anecdotal experience of its effectiveness. Still, hundreds of enthusiastic users can’t be all wrong. For a modest price, you can get the EVLA’s UV light sterilizer, which will kill germs and viruses with no hassle or mess. The peace of mind it will give you is priceless. Order yours today.
