Brass Wallet - Self-Sterilizing Wallets
By: Jonathan Andrew Becker II
Have you ever really thought about how dirty your wallet really is? Most wallets are made with fabric of some type, whether nylon, cloth, or leather. That fabric absorbs just about anything and everything that gets on your hands. So, if you touch the door at the grocery store, the germs from that transfer from your hands to your wallet when you go to pay. Not to mention money itself is dirty (you never know what someone may have touched before they touched that dollar you now have sitting in your wallet). While you can wash and sanitize your hands, you can't do the same for a traditional fabric wallet. That's where the Brass Wallet comes into play. The Brass Wallet is the first product from JabCo, and it solves the problem of transmitting germs.
"My wife actually suffers from mysophobia: the irrational fear of dirt or contamination. In other words, she is a germaphobe. For her to be comfortable, this means constant hand washing because virtually everything that we touch daily is unfathomably dirty. Chief among these problematic, germ-ridden items are the wallets we all carry around with us every day." Says Andrew.
Brass is made from a high percentage of copper, which is what's called a "pure alloy." Pure alloys are able to kill off germs entirely on their own, so you don't even have to disinfect or sanitize them (even though you could because they're metal). For brass, the timeline is approximately eight hours. After those eight hours, germs are actually completely eliminated. That's exactly why they're creating wallets entirely made out of brass, so you don't have to worry about the germs that can easily transmit from your traditional wallet.
