Good to hear seti

A local company is starting to disinfect and re use n95 masks.

I think it's a combination of ultraviolet and hydrogen peroxide mist...and some other cleaning.

I am looking into it more

Is it this company? This one appears to be only UV-C. PPE has been a bumpy ride, but good to see companies stepping up to try and fill the void.

This showed up in our office. Not sure if its legit or not havnt looked into it. But the concept sounds neat. Cell phones are pretty bad infection control wise:

Crown,

I think Homedics is the walmart/costco type brand. No experience with this unit at all.

These are a bit higher end units for disinfecting cpap type machines etc. https://canadacpapsupply.com/3b-medical ... eaner.html I see some cpap machines etc come into thrift store. Will def watch and see if the cleaners show up with them.

Yeah, I think you are right. I asked the wife about this. She said it looked a bit gimmicky. They used to use something similar in the lab but they would really only breakdown DNA so there was no cross contamination. For the intensity she's not sure if the brand I posted would do what it says it would do. She couldn't find (not saying it doesnt exist, just couldnt find) any supporting evidence on this specific device.
