We use Silver Threading to kill bacteria on our cases and masks. The patent-pending product line of mask cases offers solutions for all lifestyles to safely store reusable masks to help prevent the spread of the virus and promote improved hygiene and health.
Silver is a soft and shiny transition metal which is known to have the highest reflectivity of all metals. Silver is has a long history of killing germs. To date, there are three known mechanisms by which silver acts on microbes. Firstly, silver cations can form pores and puncture the bacterial cell wall by reacting with the peptidoglycan component. Secondly, silver ions can enter the bacterial cell, both inhibiting cellular respiration and disrupting metabolic pathways resulting in the generation of reactive oxygen species. Lastly, once in the cell, silver can also disrupt DNA and its replication cycle (Figure 1). A recently published review includes more details about the bactericidal mechanisms of silver, along with methods of silver nanoparticle preparation. Throughout history, silver has consistently been used to restrict the spread of human disease by incorporation into articles used in daily life. The earliest recorded use of silver for therapeutic purposes dates back to the Han Dynasty in China circa. 1500 B.C.E.
