Panasonic is taking aim at that funky foot odor with its new shoe deodorizer. In a survey conducted by Panasonic, 62 percent of sneaker wears reported having to take action about the funk that came out of their shoes when they took them off. Of those, only about half were satisfied with the measures they took to deodorize their shoes.\r\n\r\nOne of the major contributors to stinky shoes is the isovaleric acid caused by foot sweat and bacteria. Panasonic\u2019s shoe deodorizer, the MS-DS100, uses \u201cnanoe X\u201d ion particles that can dissolve and eliminate unpleasant odors. The particles contain hydroxyl (OH) radicals, which are nano-sized electrostatic atomized water particles. When these particles come in contact with odor causing culprits, they dissolve them to eliminate the smell.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nAll you have to do is select which mode\u2014a short mode that lasts around five hours, or the long mode that goes for about seven\u2014and place the device in your shoes. From there, the deodorizer produces the nanoe X particles and spreads them throughout the shoes, from heel to toe. The particles then penetrate the materials of the shoe and dissolve the odors. The deodorizer operates off of batteries, so no need to be near an outlet.\r\n\r\nIf you\u2019re chasing people from the room every time you slip of your shoes, then you\u2019ll be glad to know that this device will be available in late September, 2018.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
