The Science Behind the Munchkin 59S Mini and Nursery Sterilizers

With increasing concerns about children’s exposure to bacteria, germs and viruses, parents want better ways to protect their babies from resulting sickness. Sanitizing your baby’s frequently used items is a great way to do this but can be time-consuming and difficult to do at home – and the process often includes using harsh chemicals to disinfect items, which is far from ideal.

Keeping your little ones healthy by cleaning and sanitizing their pacifiers, bottles, toys and other items doesn’t have to be complicated or unsafe though! Munchkin is excited to be revolutionizing how you can sanitize your baby items simply at home with our59S Mini Sterilizer Portable UV Sanitizer and, our newest innovation, the Nursery Sterilizer

What Is a UV Light?

59S Mini Sterilizer Portable UV Sanitizer – $20

Both the 59S Mini and Nursery Sterilizer utilize UV-C light to safely and effectively eliminate over 99 percent of bacteria, germs and viruses from the surface of toys, plush and other baby items (even those with electronic components that are otherwise challenging to sanitize effectively) – in just 5 minutes – resulting in a clean you can trust!

UV light for sterilization is a science-backed and proven technology that is routinely used by hospitals to decontaminate surgical equipment and operating rooms. The 59S Mini and Nursery Sterilizer use the same UV light to neutralize bacteria and viruses safely and quickly from the surfaces of baby items and has been tested by an independent lab for guaranteed results.

How Does UV Light Kill Germs and Bacteria?

UV light kills bacteria and viruses by breaking down their DNA at the molecular level. The utilization of UV-C light enables our products to sanitize without the use of heat, water or harsh chemicals.

Harnessing the power of the sun and UV-C light is a safe and effective method for eliminating germs, viruses and bacteria – including Human Coronavirus*, Staph, E. Coli, Kleb, RSV, Salmonella and Influenza.
