Liquid and gel hand sanitizers can decontaminate hard surfaces, but these wet methods don’t quite work on fabrics, that is unless…unless a full wash and dry is in the cards. Introducing a nonthermal plasma wand that uses a dry method that leaves no residue, making it perfect soft materials, like clothing or seats. Read more for a video and additional information.
Plasma is made by running a gas, like air, through a high electric field. This field rips electrons off atoms and tears molecules apart, creating charged atoms and molecule fragments that come out the end of the wand. This plasma then destroys bacteria and viruses through a process similar to combustion in which oxygen-based ions pulling carbon out of their cell walls or protein casings.

A detergent has to sit on the surface for five to ten minutes before it destroys the pathogens. With a plasma, the gas is so highly reactive that you only need seconds of contact between the plasma and the surface in order to decontaminate,” said John Foster, a professor of nuclear engineering and radiological sciences.
