AlleX is a toy box that quickly, effectively kills dust mites in children’s toys while they are stored, thereby reducing the risk of a child developing asthma at home.
The lid of the AlleX toy box contains a UV-C Light that is activated only when the toy box is closed. UV-C Light is a proven germicide because its spectrum disrupts the DNA structure in pathogens such dust mites, harmful bacteria and viruses. Just twenty seconds of UV-C Light exposure in the AlleX Toy Box could kill 99.9% of dust mites on toys. AlleX was also designed with a perforated bottom and a removable bin where dust particles are kept out of contact with toys.
