If you’re particularly concerned about smelly feet or the odor that your shoes leave behind once you take them off, Panasonic has a new gadget that will help make your life easier. The company today announced a new device that it’s calling a “shoe deodorizer.” The Panasonic MS-DS100 features “nanoe X” which generates 10 times more hydroxyl (OH) radicals than “nanoe” in order remove shoe odors.
It works once it’s plugged in and the bottom nodes are placed into the shoes that need their odor removed. It then eliminates odors by basically bombarding the shoes with highly charged ions which penetrate through the material and dissolve particles to eliminate the bad smells.
The device has two modes of operation: normal and long. The normal mode will be enough to remove odor left behind by everyday use after doing its thing for five hours. The long mode is better suited for shoes that haven’t been blasted with ions in a while. It will get rid of stubborn odors in seven hours.
Panasonic is only going to be releasing this device in Japan on September 20th. It hasn’t mentioned a price as yet. Panasonic will only be making 1,000 units of this device every month.
