As the COVID-19 pandemic has progressed you may have seen – as we have – a lot of Internet ads for those little devices that sanitize your iPhone, or your car keys. AAPN member Jeanologia have been able to take that concept A LOT further though, debuting the "Sanibox', technology that sanitizes fabrics, apparel, footwear and more.
According to press release sent to us by longtime AAPN friend and member Carlos Arias of Jeanologia, Sanibox has a 98 percent sanitization level, is certified by CSIC — Spanish National Research Council the largest public research institution in Spain and the third largest in Europe — and complies with AFNOR NFT 72-281.
From the press release:
"Using this sanitization box, Jeanologia disinfects in a fast and safe way, offering a level of safety that allows the use of the product without risk to health since it eliminates the bacteria and deactivates the virus. Otherwise this could only be achieved if the garments were put in quarantine for a minimum of 72 hours, or if they were washed at 60ºC (140ºF) each time."
"This technological solution for sanitization also protects the colors, materials and feel of the garment and does so sustainably, without using water or chemicals."
Enrique Silla, Jeanologia’s founder, highlighted that, “We have launched a product that will contribute to accelerating the recovery and generating consumer confidence, sanitization and sustainability will be the keys to the recovery of our industry.
“From the first moment we have studied the needs of the consumer after the coronavirus and of the textile industry in the short term and we set out to create a new technology for their future needs, putting people and the planet first”.
The company has managed to launch Sanibox in record time as it already had the technology and know-how, combining over 15 years producing ozone with the experience gained in recent months working on disinfecting face protection masks in Spain.
“Consumers will not buy again if they do not feel safe,” Silla said. Therefore, “we must unite all the parties involved in the industry to protect workers and consumers throughout the different stages of the production process by using sanitization”, he concluded.
More amazing stuff from AAPN members in the face of the most uncertain and unknown circumstances!
