Ever find after washing a pair of trainers that they take ages to dry? Well SteryDry UK have come up with the answer in the form of SteryDry a unique shoe sterilising and drying product. For me this is an answer that I have been looking for, with a sport loving daughter who’s trainers are constantly in the wash. Throughout the Summer months it’s not so bad but in this colder weather I’m having damp shoes hanging around for 4 or 5 days before they are fit to wear again.
The SteryDry consists of one unit which requires minor assembly on arrival. It plugs in and is ready to go straight away with it’s preset programme which can be overidden for extra wet shoes. What I really like is that you just put the shoes on and it starts, no messing around with controls and settings, just hang the shoes over the holders and off it goes with it’s infrared sensors. This makes it ideal for my daughter to put her shoes on herself and get them drying as soon as possible. It has a small screen which counts down the minutes left which is great to know when they’ll be dry and then it automatically stops.
What is brilliant about this gadget is it not only dries your shoes but sterilising them leaving them fresh and odour free. It works by cleverly converting oxygen into ozone which circulates throughout the shoes killing all the fungi and bacteria along the way. How cool is that?
My daughter plays rugby twice a week so comes home with wet muddy boots, so we give them a quick wash and pop them on the SteryDry and within 30 minutes we have fresh, dry boots. I tend to wash her trainers every few weeks as she soon builds up the mud after playing in the park and running around at weekends. This gadget has been a godsend and makes life so much easier. Shoes are dried and back on the shoe rack that evening, essential when things like rugby boots are needed again within the next day or two. With two children and a husband who also wears rugby boots weekly whilst training, and cycles to work daily, so can often comes home with wet cycling shoes when it’s raining, the SteryDry will prove particularly valuable to our family home.
It retails at £69.99 which isn’t cheap but it’s a unique product that makes our life easier. With it getting regular use in our household which I imagine will be more over the next few years, then this is worthwhile. I’m aiming for a tidier more organised household and this helps as I’m fed up of damp shoes lying on the drying rack in the kitchen all the time. If you have a household that regularly finds itself with wet shoes then it is worth checking out SteryDry, it’s been brilliant for us and I can’t fault it. The only thing I would say is it’s not the most compact of items but I’ve found a home for it under the stairs so it’s easy to pull in and out the several times a week that we use it, a small price to pay for the benefits we’ve gained from it.
I must also mention SteryDry’s sister company Hospitality Quality who have a fun range of stocking filler items such as keyrings, magnets and handbag mirrors. Available from their website or Amazon, they come with fun slogans with something to suit everyone.
I particularly like these handbag mirrors presented in an organza bag. I have just the friend who would love this Marilyn Monroe mirror and I think the prosecco magnet has my name all over it!A fun selection of stocking fillers for friends and family!
