        Does SafeTouch™kill bacteria?

          SafeTouch™is made of copper. Copper is inherently antimicrobial and kills 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours.
          *Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: MRSA, VRE, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. Antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination or infections; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices.

          Are the color-coated tools made from 100% copper?

            Yes, our color-coated SafeTouch™ tools are made out of 100% solid copper.
            Our antimicrobial color-coating is extremely effective, long lasting and durable. 

            How does the antimicrobial coating work?

              Our color coated SafeTouch™ tools are treated with an antimicrobial coating. This antimicrobial technology negatively affects viruses and bacteria that contaminate the surface by way of protein damage, cell membrane damage, oxidative damage and DNA interference. Essentially, the genetic material is disrupted, stopping the virus or bacteria from being able to replicate.

              Does the antimicrobial effect wear off?

                No, the SafeTouch™antimicrobial properties will remain effective as long as the surface remains clean and it is used as directed.

                Should SafeTouch™ be cleaned/sanitized after every use? 

                  How often you clean your SafeTouch™is at your discretion. We recommend cleaning your tool to preserve its look and longevity.

                  What is the best way to clean SafeTouch™?

                    You can clean SafeTouch™ with steel wool, a soft cloth or a disinfectant wipe. We suggest using Wright's Copper Cream Cleaner found on Amazon and in most stores.

                    Will SafeTouch™ patina over time?

                      Yes, SafeTouch™ is made of solid copper so it will naturally darken over time.

                      Is SafeTouch™ TSA-friendly?

                        Yes, TSA generally allows hand tools to be permitted in carry-on bags.

                        Does SafeTouch™ work for round doorknobs?

                          SafeTouch™can help you push, pull or turn a door lever. Additionally, it works on some door knobs but not all. Most round doorknobs are found in residential spaces such as homes and apartments. SafeTouch™ was designed to help open public doors which primarily have push, pull or turn functions.

                          Does SafeTouch™ work at gas stations?

                            SafeTouch™ can help you use touchscreens and push buttons at gas stations but it cannot help you hold the nozzle or squeeze the pump trigger to dispense gasoline into your vehicle.

                            Can SafeTouch™ be used as a stylus on touch screens?

                              Our SafeTouch™ tool can be used as a stylus on most touch screen devices. Some touch screens are less responsive due to high traffic and require a bit more conducive surface area. Try using the flat end on the bottom of the hook or the finger hole on those screens. The more surface area the easier it is for the screen to sense your selection. Please email us with any further questions: info@buysafetouch.com.

                              Can SafeTouch™ be used as a stylus on signature pads?

                              Our SafeTouch™ tool can be used as a stylus on some signature pads. However, certain machines are only compatible with their built in pen stylus. SafeTouch is a great tool to be employed as much as possible but proper hygiene protocol and contamination prevention are recommended when absolutely necessary.

                              Can SafeTouch™ be customized with my company/ logo or purchased in bulk?
