How does The Lightworker work?
Your yoga mat passes through The Lightworker’s high-intensity UV-C light chamber, exposing both sides to a short blast of concentrated germicidal light that deactivates microorganisms by destroying their DNA.
How do I use The Lightworker?
1. Simply place your loosely rolled mat onto the feed bar, so it unrolls toward the back.
2. Feed your mat down into the machine, and release when the rollers engage.
3. Roll up your mat as it exits the bottom of the machine.
How do I know The Lightworker really works?
Does the UV-C light from The Lightworker damage my mat?
No. In passing a mat through The Lightworker, the total exposure to the mat is about a second. If you used The Lightworker every day of the year, your mat would receive an annual total exposure of a little more than 7 minutes. Matsana (the orginal machine that pre-dated the LightWorker) conducted accelerated 10 year daily exposure testing on several brands of mats, including Manduka, Tapas, Lulu Lemon and generic varieties. None of them showed any change in flexibility, elasticity, color, cushioning or surface texture/appearance.
Will I get any harmful radiation from The Lightworker?
No. The Lightworker’s radiant energy is contained within the machine, and the UVC bulbs are only on for about 30 seconds, as the mat is being passed through the machine.
UVC radiation CAN cause severe burns (of the skin) with prolonged exposure, and eye injuries (photokeratitis) could result from looking directly at the source. As always with UVC light, avoid direct skin exposure to UVC radiation and never look directly into a UVC light source, even briefly.
Does The Lightworker produce ozone?
Is The Lightworker light harmful to me?
Will The Lightworker destroy mat odor?
Do UV-C wands do the same thing as The Lightworker?
No. UV-C wands, by design, are to be used by untrained consumers in uncontrolled environments, and, for safety, the power of the lamps is severely limited. Waving around an underpowered hand-held device is no match for the controlled process and sheer power of The Lightworker. Your mat passes through The Lightworker’s enclosed, high-intensity, UV-C light chamber at a regulated rate of exposure and ensures that every square inch of your mat, on both sides, receives a powerful and effective dose of germicidal UV-C light.
Does The Lightworker leave anything on my mat?
No. Unlike sprays, wipes, or oils, that sometimes use toxic chemicals, bleach or other active liquids, The Lightworker is a dry process and leaves no residue. And unlike some mats with undisclosed, embedded germicidal agents, you may place your face on your Lightworker sanitized mat with absolute confidence and peace of mind.
How Green is The Lightworker?
Very. The Lightworker is made in the US, primarily from aluminum, the most plentiful metal in the earth’s crust. Aluminum is also very easy to recycle and commands high prices from aluminum producers, ensuring that little, if any, finds its way to landfills. The feed bar is made from metal, again, sought after and easily recycled. The lamps are recycled by the same facilities that recycle fluorescent lamps.
The Lightworker is designed and built for the long haul and once delivered to a studio, ends the cycle of diesel-powered, greenhouse gas-producing, shipping and restocking of heavy, liquid, mat cleaning agents. It also helps to halt the endless production and disposal of plastic bottles for those liquids and the disposable wipes and their packaging that end up in landfills.
And in spite of LightWorker’s powerful UV-C lamp array, it uses very little of electricity.
What if The Lightworker machine won't process my mat?
