We’re living in times where the general population is much more conscious of the infective capabilities of the world around them. Door handles become terrifying, typing in ATM pins becomes a risk, masks are being mandated by the government, and a whole slew of other shifts in everyday life are occurring. One thing that we know for sure is that the way the world worked before COVID-19 came about will not be the same world we come out of quarantine to… whenever that might be. When we are let back out into the world and the lockdowns are lifted, however, it’s important to be prepared. We’re going to go through a few factors that you should keep in mind when you’re looking for a germ-fighting keychain, anti-microbial multi-tools, and other products that can help set you up for success in a world fighting a pandemic.
What Does It Mean To Be Anti-Microbial?
Anti-microbial characteristics of products and materials are a buzz word floating around the internet right now to say the very least. An anti-microbial material is a material that has an intrinsic capability to kill microorganisms. Antimicrobial surfaces are utilized in a variety of ways while some products are made completely out of anti-microbial materials such as copper, brass, and more. The “too long didn’t read version” of this paragraph is, anti-microbial products are made out of or coated with anti-microbial materials that intrinsically kill microorganisms.
What Materials Are Anti-Microbial?
Now that we know what an anti-microbial material is, let’s talk about what material is inherently anti-microbial. Copper - and its alloys brass, bronze, and others - are naturally antimicrobial materials capable of destroying a wide range of microorganisms due to their intrinsic properties. You don’t need a “too long didn’t read” version of this one. Don’t be lazy!
Can I Still Get Sick If I Use Anti-Microbial Products?
There’s a ton of uncertainty in the world right now and the best thing anyone can do is set themselves up for success. Wearing an N-95 mask, carrying around a GermShark, and staying 6-feet away from one another are all ways we can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other coronaviruses, but at the end of the day, nothing is a guarantee. What we can guarantee, however, is that using anti-microbial products, practicing good hygiene, and socially distancing yourself from others are all ways to help flatten the curve and protect those around us. Grab yourself, your friend, or your family members a GermShark today and help stop the spread.
Does Anti-Microbial Mean It Kills Germs?
As we discussed earlier in the article, anti-microbial materials kill micro-organisms that exist on tons of surfaces and all throughout the world. They exist on cardboard boxes, door handles, beer bottles and caps, our hands, our phones, and more. If you’re going to read anything in this paragraph make it this… microorganisms (including bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi such as mold and mildew and more) are all killed by anti-microbial products… such as the GermShark.
Where Can I Get Products To Help Me Combat The Spread Of COVID-19?
While the absolute best thing people can do right now is to stay at home and help flatten the curve, we don’t expect everyone to do so ESPECIALLY when lockdowns begin to be lifted across the United States and the world. GermShark offers a multi-tool made out of the anti-microbial material brass which helps you open doors, punch in pin numbers, pick up items, open beer bottles, and anything you can imagine using it for. In addition to its badass functionality, a portion of every purchase is donated to people in the service industry who are currently struggling to make ends meet.
Hopefully, you were able to learn something about anti-microbial products and maybe even find a product that will call your keyring home in the next couple of business days. We do want to make certain that you know our top priority is ensuring your safety, health, and happiness during this strange time int the world. If you’re feeling like grabbing a GermShark (available on Amazon as well) either due to its anti-microbial capabilities or just the fact that it looks damn cool then, by all means, grab one, two, three, or however many your heart desires. If not, no pressure at all, but we do encourage you to read more articles on GermShark and BeerShark to help pass the time while you stay at home and help us flatten the curve. Be safe, y’all!
