The year 2020 made us completely ignorant of hygiene, and it also made us realize how dirty the shoes are. Have you ever thought about how much your shoes touch your hands? The team at Nebula did, and their research is just plain. One study suggests that a single shoe can carry 440,000 bacteria – critters you don’t want inside your home.
Nebula mat may be the answer. It is equipped with an array of doormat sensors that detect when you walk, and it leaves a nice mist of bacteria-killing spray to clean your shoes before you take a step inside the house. There is a built-in drying area that removes any excess spray, so you don’t have to worry about tracking it through the house.
The drying area is made from an environmentally friendly – but most important, washable – microfiber cloth. When they get a little too dirty (like with a lot of mud after the rain), just remove them and toss them in the washing machine.
The spray solution is medical grade, but is not made up of harmful chemicals such as bleach. In fact, it is registered with the EPA. You do not want to drink it, but the solution is not as harmful as other options in the market. It is important that dangerous bacteria such as meningitis as well as e. Coli is strong enough to kill bacteria.
The Nebula mat is designed to be stylish simply because it is effective, with a modern aesthetic that fits most homes. Its weather resistant design makes it perfect for use on covered porches and passages. At 21 inches wide by 33 inches long, that mat can easily accommodate both of your feet at the same time, no matter how big your shoes are.
The nebula mat is not lightweight though. At around 20 pounds, it won’t blow off your porch. If you run out of cleaning spray, the nebula will ship more to your home – you need to order it. The Nebula Mat has an estimated retail price of $ 250, with a Kickstarter campaign scheduled to begin next month.
