What does it do?

The RefresherBoxx is a device that eliminates viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. It was originally designed as a refreshing and hygiene device for hotels, businesses, and home use. When we, along with the rest of the European public, became aware of the current pandemic, we realized that we could support the people working in the healthcare system as well as others with the RefresherBoxx. The proven technologies and the unique concept can help us all right now. In theory, placing a RefresherBoxx in hospitals, in retirement homes, and at other critical infrastructures would make for safer workplaces for carers as well as safer environments for the most vulnerable. Supporting the people who support the vital logistics we need to keep our daily lives running, would make for a safer place where we could help you all to #staysafe.

Help us prove it works: The RefresherBoxx has been tested in various situations and with a multitude of pathogens – but are we effective against COVID-19? Honestly – we don’t know yet. We need an environment where we can test and prove our effectiveness. If you can help: get in touch!

Use Cases

Medical services

In the medical field, protection is especially important to avoid spreading infection. Coats, gloves, shoes as well as head covers, and masks are typically one-use items. In a crisis, the supply of these items becomes a bottleneck, as we see in Germany and the US right now. The RefresherBoxx enables institutions to easily sterilize existing protective clothing in very short time and helps all medical staff and the patients they are in contact with. This means that the Refresherboxx helps to push the limit of existing resources and and to help us all #staysafe.

High-contact professions

In times when we constantly travel the world, we need to protect the people that guide us as well as the travelers. Highly frequented areas such as airports, trainstations, and local public transport are hotspots for the spread of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. Being able to offer a quick turnaround not only for uniforms, but also for shoes and other gear of the service personnel protects us all. The items are not only cleaned but also disinfected, making these hubspots a safer place!

Professional

Companies and coworking spaces can purchase RefresherBoxx as a service for their employees and users. We rely on staff in grocery stores and pharmacies that continuously deals with a large, heterogeneous group of customers. Many professionals are working out of offices and can not always avoid contact on their way to work. Help them to help us #staysafe.

The RefresherBoxx disinfects your clothes, shoes and other items. For people suffering from allergies using the RefresherBoxx may result in relief from classical symptoms.

In the washing machine, bacteria and viruses start to get eliminated at over 60°C. This high temperature is not suitable for many items of clothing and types of materials. Washing at a lower temperature may refresh items and remove a range of stains but bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microorganisms remain within the textiles.

Easy

Many items cannot be washed in the washing machine, such as suits, shoes, helmets, stuffed toys, wool. Especially delicate textiles made from materials such as cashmere, silk, leather and any combination thereof could not be cleaned at home before.
The RefresherBoxx removes the odour from all textiles, even from non-washable fabrics. It refreshes and disinfects your suits, shoes, wool, leather and fine textiles.

Eco friendly

Between 100 and 400 liters of drinking water are consumed per person and day in the western world. Up to 45 percent of this amount goes down the drain for laundry and flushing the toilet. Every year, 15.9 gigatons of water are used worldwide for washing clothes, which is five times as much as Lake Starnberg. These quantities are a heavy burden on our drinking water resources. Not only the waste of water pollutes our limited resources, but also the micro plastics that cannot be filtered out and end up in drinking water and oceans. With every washing cycle, millions of micro plastic particles are rinsed into the water. In addition, 208 million m³ of detergent, or 71 times the volume of the Allianz Arena worldwide, is dispensed in water every year. Surfactant in any form are highly problematic for the environment and have to be filtered out. The recycling of the water, but also the heating during the wash cycle, consumes a lot of electricity, energy and money..
Using the RefresherBoxx saves hundreds of liter of water annually and is very sustainable. Since the RefresherBoxx does neither wash with water nor with chemicals, our environment does not suffer these consequences. Without water there is no waste of water, no micro plastics washed into the water, no energy for recycling and heating the water. RefresherBoxx has energy-saving components and therefore requires very little energy. The contribution to environmental protection goes even further as all parts are selected for easy recycling at a later date.

Gentle

The traditional cleaning cycle relies on heavy spinning and materials being repeatdly rubbed against an abrasive drum.c During each washing cycle, micro tears appear in the fabric harming your clothing repeatedly in every cycle. Most of our parts do not need to be washed at all, because they are not dirty. 70% of the washed clothes have no stains, are worn 1-2 times and smell like sweat, smoke or similar.
Cleaning from the inside to the outside with an intelligent combination of physical methods the RefresherBoxx can be used for any textile. It prevents shrinkage and damage of sensitive textiles through its gentle cleaning process. You can enjoy your favorite items all around fresh, clean and dry much longer!
