The nightmare of holiday travel is officially upon us. Beyond fighting the crush of other travelers, we’re also battling the never-ending onslaught of germs. That is – until more travel companies embrace this self-cleaning technology.
“Powered by light, NanoSeptic surfaces utilize mineral nano-crystals which create an oxidation reaction stronger than bleach,” according to the NanoSeptic website. “Working 24/7, the surface continually oxidizes organic contaminants.”
The company says their most popular product right now is the self-cleaning mat for TSA security bins in airports.
“Over and over again, we would tell the story of how travelers walk around the airport, including on bathroom floors, then take off their shoes and put them in the bin going through TSA security,” says NanoSeptic co-founder Dennis Hackemeyer. “Then the next traveler puts their phone, glasses, keys and other personal items where those shoes were. Before we could even finish telling the story, the reaction was always the same….please stop, I think I’m going to be sick.”
The company has just released new products, including a self-cleaning film for airport touch screens, and self-cleaning elevator button covers. But until then, you can get your hands on your very own personal self-cleaning placemat for use on airplane trays and hotel vanities, creating a cleaner place to rest your snacks and personal items.
