Killing COVID 19 with ultraviolet light

Post by Bill DeShivs »

If any of you need to disinfect things like masks, smaller packages, mail, etc., it's pretty simple to order an LED ultraviolet "C" light off Ebay for under 20 bucks. To keep it from damaging your eyes or skin, just mount it in a cardboard box, and set the box over the items you want to disinfect. 30 minutes should be ample time to kill any virii.

I'm putting one together tonight.

Is it necessary to turn items over after the 30 minutes to expose the other side to the UV?
