Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I use the shUVee® Ultraviolet Shoe Deodoriser?
Q: Why should I use the shUVee® Ultraviolet Shoe Deodoriser?
Because your feet contain 250,000 sweat glands producing producing about 1L of sweat each day, and your shoes are dark, warm and moist, this is a great place to harbour bacteria and fungus. These are the same bugs that cause Athlete's Foot, onychomycosis (fungal nails) and nasty infections on your feet. They also cause smelly feet which can be embarrassing and unpleasant for yourself and others.
Q: How safe is the ultraviolet light in the shUVee® Ultraviolet Shoe Deodoriser?
The shUVee® Ultraviolet Shoe Deodoriser is safe for you use by your whole family. Ultraviolet, or UV, light is produced by the sun. When you walk outside you expose yourself to UV light naturally. Just as with the sun, prolonged exposure can damage your skin and no one should ever look directly into the sun. For these same reasons, we strongly warn against exposing the shUVee®'s UV light to your skin or looking directly into the light.

Follow your nose. This very sensitive organ is the best way to determine if these bugs have been eradicated. Your shoes should be smelling like new in as little as 45 minutes!
Q: How long does the shUVee® take to work?
Depending on the condition of your shoes, they should be deodorised in 45 minutes and fully clean in just 8 hours. We recommend cleaning your shoes overnight while you sleep.
