Tool Klean’s “Germ Warfare” Photo Challenge

There probably isn’t an adult on the planet for whom destroying viruses, bacteria, and fungi isn’t more important now than ever before. You might say we’re “at war” with things we can’t see.

We are delighted to welcome back Tool Klean, tremendous supporters of National Purebred Dog Day, and leaders in innovative products that wage war against pathogens using UV Light technology. This woman owned-and-operated business since 2017 has fittingly named this challenge, “Germ Warfare.”

The challenge: Interpret “Germ Warfare” into a photograph that recruits your dog(s) in the fight against nasties. Is your dog the Super Hero fighting invisible evil, or he or she the invading germ? What would your dog want you to disinfect if you win? Dazzle our judges with your creativity!

The prize: You want to win this prize! The Tool Klean UV Sanitizer Cabinet is trusted by groomers, fanciers, barbers, teachers and professionals to sanitize the tools of their trade.

The oven can also be used to “de-germ” the things we rely on to make life a little easier: Keys, credit cards, facemasks, earbuds, eyeglasses, toothbrushes, and even cell phones. You see, no liquid, heat, or chemicals are used to sanitize these small items, only ultraviolet type C light with a 253.7nm wavelength scientifically proven to destroy 99.99% of the most difficult-to-kill bacteria (staph and salmonella) within 10 minutes.

The size of a small toaster oven, the sanitizing box with suspended racks and highly reflective interior surface disinfects all sides of an item at once. Just place the objects inside, set the digital timer, close the door, and in 5-10 minutes the items are ready to use.
