Once treated with Clean Sweep®, the clear and flexible antimicrobial micro-coating provides a “shield”, effectively keeping footwear microbe-free.
Clean Sweep® utilizes a nanosilver formula to safely, effectively inhibit bacteria and neutralize the causes of shoe odor. When the silver nanoparticles in Clean Sweep® come in contact with moisture, they release very low levels of silver ions that prevent microbes from growing. That’s why, for decades, hospitals have used antimicrobial silver extensively to kill bacteria.
Silver and silver particles are non-toxic and hypoallergenic so exposure to skin is not a concern. In fact, burn patients are often given silver creams and foams. Not too long ago, doctors placed silver nitrate drops into infants’ eyes to prevent infection. For many of us, silver was the very first drug we received!
