With the rapid development of society and the economy, there's an escalating demand for quality of life. Home appliances, essential for domestic living, are increasingly being valued by most consumers for their health-enhancing feaures. Particularly as the Double Eleven shopping festival nears, appliances with disinfection capabilities have become a market focal point.

The survey data reveals that most consumers are comfortable with an additional cost of 200-500 yuan for added disinfection features, as shown in a "Consumer Attitudes and Antimicrobial Product Market Survey" conducted by Hangjia Research and Hangjia UV. In detail, 24.32% of consumers would prefer prices under 200 yuan, while 21.62% are willing to accept prices above 1000 yuan. (Data source: Hangjia UV)

This market trend has prompted numerous home appliance companies to launch a variety of appliances with disinfection functions. This emergence leads to a crucial inquiry: do these appliances genuinely achieve "disinfection," or is their purchase merely a 'smart tax'?

Disinfecting Appliances: Truly Coveted or a 'Smart Tax'?

In everyday life, we often encounter a range of disinfecting home appliances, such as utensil disinfectors, baby bottle disinfectors, clothing disinfectors, air conditioners with disinfection features, and bacteria-killing refrigerators. But are these appliances really just a 'smart tax'?

Taking disinfectors as an example, experts like Zhuang Hongdi from the Infection Management Department of West China Hospital, Sichuan University, and Hu Shuntie from the Environmental and School Sanitation Disinfection Institute of the Sichuan Center for Disease Control and Prevention, suggest, "There are many disinfection methods, and using a disinfectors is a relatively simple one. It's not essential for every household, but it's advisable to consider purchasing a disinfectors in certain scenarios. Particularly against pathogens transmitted orally, such as Helicobacter pylori, Hepatitis A and E viruses, these can be eradicated with proper use of a regular disinfectors."
