UV-C can even neutralize “superbugs” that have developed a resistance to antibiotics. UV-C that causes this germicidal effect is rare on Earth as our atmosphere blocks it. This light is harmful to our eyes, hence why it must be done within Bacteria remover's controlled environment. You will never see the UV light that is killing all those germs, but an external blue indicator on the device will let you know when your device is...
