About the Project

One of the reason why we don't do anything about bacteria is because we don't know what to do. No matter how often you wash your hands, they always win. Using anti-bacteria soap even make your skin drier, and weaker. You heard of cleaning yourself but why not the objects that we touch? Cleaning bacteria after they attack you, is just a follow-up motion. Why don't we focus on advanced prevention? Create a proactive way to sterilize our surroundings and realize personal hygiene. We made Cleanty series with that goal like never before.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Cleanty: the World's smallest & most powerful UVC LED Sterilizer

  • Reality:

    As often seen on Profta reviews, anytime a campaign claims World's smallest or most powerful, the potential for false advertising increases. Here it is difficult to claim smallest and most powerful in the same package. Amazon.com and Alibaba.com both have options for similarly sized products that claim to do similar feats.

  • Claim:

    Kill Bacteria - 99.9%

  • Reality:

    UVC light has in fact been proven to prevent bacteria replication as well as kill bacteria. However, those results were proven under perfect scenarios and conditions. This handheld device allows for high levels of user error and leaves a certain element of uncertainty. There are so many variances, for not all the bacteria to be killed and that inability to be totally confident that all bacteria is killed, could be a struggle for some end users.

  • Claim:

    Brand New: 150% Sterilization

  • Reality:

    This is only 150% in comparison to previous versions of Cleanty.

  • Claim:

    Fight and Kill Bacteria with the most simple way

  • Reality:

    It is considered pretty simple to use a Clorox wipe to disinfect an area, with certainty that it works.

Something To Think About

Irregular surfaces or rough and porous surfaces hide bacteria and prevent light from reaching every nook of a surface.

Bottom Line

Cleanty is a device that in theory and perfect conditions can be used to prevent bacteria from replicating or potentially kill it altogether. However, there are many other similar products already on the market, but with these, there is a risk that not all bacteria is killed. Also, some end users may prefer to use a good old fashioned Clorox wipe in comparison to running a light over everything.
