Panasonic Corporation will begin selling a shoe deodorizer, the MS-DS100, equipped with “nanoe X” that generates 10 times more hydroxyl (OH) radicals than “nanoe” to remove unpleasant shoe odors in a simple way, on September 20, 2018. But this in Japan only, at this time ! One of the common causes of unpleasant shoe odors is isovaleric acid, an odorous substance produced by foot sweat and bacteria. When the MS-DS100 deodorizer is set in shoes and the switch turned on, “nanoe X” is generated and spreads from six outlets to every corner of the shoes to remove odors in the entire interior of the shoes from the heel to the toe.
Measuring about 5 to 20 nm each, the “nanoe X” particles penetrate the textile and dissolve and eliminate unpleasant shoe odors. The normal mode provides approximately five hours of operation, while the long mode runs for about seven hours to remove stubborn odors. Both modes cost less than 1 yen per use, so it is very economical. The MS-DS100 also operates on a mobile battery. (For normal mode, use a mobile battery with a capacity of 3,760 mAh or more (rated output: 5.0 VDC). Caps can be removed and washed with water. Deodorizing effect varies depending on the ambient conditions (temperature, humidity), operating time, type of odor, and type of textile.
