I sure hope so, cause that's best I can get right now

2020-03-11 06:30:33 UTC  

if you set it down on your countertop or touch it, then you have just transferred the virus to yourself

2020-03-11 06:31:27 UTC  

So I should have a tray ready near my oven when I come in

2020-03-11 06:32:20 UTC  

Using a UV-C light would also work, but I'm not sure how long it would take for the UV to destroy the virus. (Don't use UV-A or UV-B, because they will blind you, damage your skin, and destroy the item that you are trying to sterilize)

2020-03-11 06:32:35 UTC  

@Amaria how old are you?And do you have any underlying problems?

2020-03-11 06:32:47 UTC  

precisely. I figured that I would just toss mine on a cookie sheet or a baking pan

2020-03-11 06:34:35 UTC  

Also, my other fear is, I must travel I am 53 years old, I have COPD. Ashma, I've been exposed to TB before ..had a few lesions on right lung from that, I previously had pneumonia 2 years ago. So yeah I have some medical issues

2020-03-11 06:34:39 UTC  

Hi use this on facemasks.

2020-03-11 06:35:04 UTC  

Oops my fear is I must travel by cab a few times per month

2020-03-11 06:37:01 UTC  

@Karnivore I was thinking of getting one of those lights , but I dont know much about it.. thanks for letting me know

2020-03-11 06:39:54 UTC  

@Amaria The UV-C light won't necessarily be easy to find right now, and certainly not cheap.

2020-03-11 06:40:23 UTC  

@Hennessy by applying that to your mask, you probably turned it from a 0.3 micron filter to a 1.3 micron filter.

2020-03-11 06:41:07 UTC  

the superhydrophobic coating will most likely allow the virus to pass even faster through the mask, into your nose

2020-03-11 06:41:57 UTC  

I was just looking at that repellant, pretty cool but yeah I'd be worried it would change the mask itself

2020-03-11 06:43:47 UTC  

But it's good to use it on everyday items like keys and car keys?

2020-03-11 06:44:06 UTC  

Coins, paper money

2020-03-11 06:44:12 UTC  

no idea

2020-03-11 06:44:18 UTC  

looks good, though

2020-03-11 06:44:33 UTC  

Credit cards

2020-03-11 06:44:45 UTC  

I have an ozone generator wonder if that would kill viruses

2020-03-11 06:44:49 UTC  


2020-03-11 06:45:52 UTC  

@Deleted User I'm not sure

2020-03-11 06:47:07 UTC  

I'll have to look it up, it has an air pump in it and it's designed to Bubble through water to purify it

2020-03-11 06:47:24 UTC  

Or at least kill bacteria in it

2020-03-11 06:47:43 UTC  

ozone is pretty good at doing that

2020-03-11 06:48:06 UTC  

I used them in the past on my reef aquariums, to wipe out unwanted pests

2020-03-11 06:48:19 UTC  

I'm pretty sure ozone will kill viruses, too

2020-03-11 06:48:33 UTC  

but you've have to research how it would apply to a coronavirus

2020-03-11 06:49:02 UTC  

the molecule is 3 oxygen atoms

2020-03-11 06:49:12 UTC  

Yes it's very reactive

2020-03-11 06:49:36 UTC  

and since oxygen always wants to go to a more stable configuration, that third oxygen always wants to jump away

2020-03-11 06:50:13 UTC  

my guess would be that it would be better to sterilize your mask than not

2020-03-11 06:50:23 UTC  

but it would also break down rubber and the likes

2020-03-11 06:50:33 UTC  

Yeah I was going to do the 160° thing

2020-03-11 06:50:38 UTC  

same here

2020-03-11 06:50:53 UTC  

I also still have at least one small ozonizer (ozone maker) around here

2020-03-11 06:51:06 UTC  

you can get them at aquarium shops

2020-03-11 06:51:10 UTC  

they look like air pumps

2020-03-11 06:51:43 UTC  

What is an old one built into a small fishing tackle box

2020-03-11 06:51:50 UTC  

but beware that you probably don't want to inhale too much ozone

2020-03-11 06:52:00 UTC  

I got to look that up also
